Preventative and Deferred Maintenance Reality Check: How Accurate is Your Equipment Inventory

 Back to Session List

About this session:

Buildings are constantly changing, so maintenance teams chase a moving target about knowing where equipment and shutoffs are located in the field. Teams struggle to document these changes -- relying on memories. This situation is compounded when organizations are forced to work in a “run to fail” environment because unexpected failures have a tremendous financial impact. There’s value in using your mobile device to field-verify what equipment is on your campus, how to effectively inventory your equipment by type, location, condition and how to access equipment maintenance info using QR codes. The veteran team member who you’ve relied on for years might be gone in a couple of weeks, a few months, or a year – drawn to another organization offering a better package and better benefits or withdrawing from the workforce for personal reasons. You don’t want to be in a position where you can’t answer equipment questions because that was always another person’s area of expertise. The session will provide practical tips for managing equipment inventories and equipment maintenance. After attending this session, the participant will have a stronger grasp of these challenges, the financial impacts of deferred maintenance and tips on mapping equipment locations.
