Maintenance management

Expected profit: 10-20% saving of maintenance costs over the entire lifetime of buildings
Expected cost: Performance of a graphic inventory on one occasion, monitoring of larger moves and remodeling work
Products used: OrthoGraph Enterprise, CMMS, Leica BLK360

This functional part most probably results in the greatest savings, which, in addition to ensuring a reduction of costs, also involves an improvement in the quality of the property operation service. This is partly a result of the lower maintenance personnel demand, the comprehensible maintenance processes, prompt communication, the significantly shortened travelling and element-locating time, and the up-to-date building documentation created as a “side product”. With the implementation of suitably scheduled and planned maintenance work the number of unexpected breakdowns and outages can be reduced, which can be further improved by connecting the building automation and production line analysis systems to the operation of the CMMS system. Through this, in addition to the fewer downtimes, the maintenance cycles can be extended to correspond to the actual use, meaning that the filter in a fan coil unit only has to be replaced if made necessary due to the amount of use.

It is important to note that the planned downtimes can even result in even more savings in many cases, such as lower back-office service costs. Unexpected downtimes occurring on the manufacturing, production side of enterprises can cause outages of main activity, due to this well-planned and implemented facility management indirectly results in even greater savings than merely a reduction of the daily operation overheads.

The greatest advantages of the OrthoGraph-CAFM/CMMS system pair can be found in the following areas of maintenance work:
