Today’s higher technology is putting greater demands on the maintenance organization and requires that departmental diversity command more attention than ever before. Maintenance training becomes vital! COGZ software can help.
Maintenance training then becomes an essential part of the structure of your maintenance management. For managers, maintenance training can be a challenge. But it is a challenge that must be met with full concentration, if not, your maintenance training will not be effective. A key point to remember is that the people you have are your best resources. The better expertise they have, the better you will operate. The key is to identify each one’s strengths and concentrate your maintenance training on these. If you do this, you will quickly have experts in a variety of trades to balance with the other skills they already possess. Try to fight the natural inclination to look only at a person’s weakest ability. Usually it is a weakness for a reason and although some maintenance training can be beneficial in the weak areas, they may not be naturally inclined toward that exact area. So, bring your people to their fullest ability in their strong areas first. Then provide cultivation in their weakest areas. Usually you will have enough variety in people to cover all your needs. In others, one’s strengths offset another’s weaknesses.
How does COGZ software help? Some instruction can be automated using the task library and especially with the attach notes feature. You can use this as a maintenance training log to give specific details of various procedures needed to make proper repairs. Then each time those procedures need completion, the training note is attached to the procedure and preparation is automatic. For formalized maintenance training, outlines for specific training can be put into the task library and scheduled the same way preventive maintenance tasks are scheduled.
This is especially important for the maintenance training that needs to be renewed on a periodic basis. Using COGZ for scheduling your employee groundwork just like it would schedule a preventive maintenance task, ensures that instruction will take place properly and on schedule. This is important especially when your company receives periodic audits, whether from an internal source or from an outside audit program or even regulatory inspections, your scheduling and documentation are all important to be able to provide quickly and easily.
