Aside from proactively managing energy use, a fully functional CMMS can shed more light on an organization's energy situation, help organize data more effectively and give managers a useful tool to help develop energy-saving strategies. Key features required when specifying a new or upgraded CMMS to improve sustainability include an equipment module to track all assets, including facilities, in an organization.
In addition to standard modules for PM, work orders, inventory, and purchasing, the system should be able to set priorities and levels of criticality for each piece of equipment. The CMMS also should give managers and system users the ability to:
CMMS: Use Software to Manage Energy Use
CMMS Upgrades: What Modules Do You Need?
CMMS: Data Can Uncover Energy Deficiencies
CMMS: How to Implement Condition-Based Monitoring
