Which Piece of Equipment Costs the Most?

Use MVP Plant to track and report on labor and parts costs for each piece of equipment.  Information is power and knowing which piece of equipment costs the most provides a window of opportunity to focus on that piece of equipment to minimize its labor and parts costs.  Continue this process until all equipment maintenance costs have been minimized and thus, profits maximized.

CMMS Data Group Announces Plug & Play Lube Storage Rooms with MVP Plant Integration!

clip_image001

The Issue
Most petroleum-based lubricants stored in ambient-controlled conditions (not suffering temperature swings) last for 30 years. However, most lubricants are not stored in ambient-controlled conditions: temperature swings allow moisture, foreign material, and other contaminants to enter the storage containers, resulting in reduced lube life and lubrication effectiveness. The end result: shortened equipment life, even failures.

Properly storing lubricants, and lube equipment, can greatly extend their life and effectiveness. However, finding an area in the plant that is isolated, free of contamination, and temperature- and humidity-controlled can be extremely difficult. If such a project is undertaken, it is either cost-prohibitive or impossible to even find the space within the facility.

The Solution
Plug & Play Lube Storage Rooms offer a mobile lube storage room delivered to your plant. Select a space in your plant, inside or outside, supply the power, and presto, you have a state-of-the-art lube storage room. The rooms are insulated, climate-controlled, heated, air conditioned, and even de-humidified in some geographic areas.

CMMS Users
Integrate lube consumption directly to MVP Plant.

MVP Plant Report Builder Customer Feedback!

Earlier this month, MVP Plant users from across the country joined together in Chicago to learn how to build custom reports using MVP Plant's Report Builder.  The class was surprised at how easy it was to build desired reports from scratch, insert various graphs, charts, and gauges, and add their personal touch (look and feel).  Additionally, they learned how to schedule reports to automatically generate based on a specific schedule (recurring or one time) and distribute to a specific recipient list.  This way, they build the report once and let MVP Plant do the rest of work by automatically generating and distributing the reports for them, ultimately saving time, money, and effort.

MVP Capture Wireless, CMMS Data Group's Flagship Barcode Solution, Now Works with MVP Plant!

MVP Capture is a barcode solution that uses barcode scanners to track complete and accurate maintenance data (work, parts, labor, comments, downtime, etc.) and uploads this information to MVP Plant paperlessly and wirelessly. Equipment, parts, work orders, etc. are all identified with a barcode. Maintenance technicians and inventory personnel simply scan the barcode they need to enter, eliminating all data collection and entry errors while saving a tremendous amount of time.

Current MVP Capture customers not only save time and money with regard to data processing, they also find that response times have dramatically improved (5 minutes down to 15 seconds) and Maintenance and Facilities workers get more work done because they don’t have to walk back and forth to the shop unnecessarily to get new job assignments…work orders are simply transmitted and updated wirelessly.
