In this ever changing and fast paced world, the running of maintenance operations in large and complex industries is an intricate process and has a significant impact on the profitability of the business.

Managing this process effectively with the current computer-based support has been proven to be difficult, but achieving successful long term implementations and use of these systems requires a major change-management program over many years.

It is not surprising then that there is a low success rate among even large organisations worldwide in implementing an effective Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS) to support improved reliability and performance.

Out Perth chapter got together in the last week of August to hear from Carlos Fortuna, Sustainment Capability Manager for Austal Australia, to discuss some of the high level reasons behind the low success rate achieved and outlines some essential elements that must be included to ensure a disciplined and well-resourced program that can deliver success.
