CMMS Training for CMMS System
Facility Maintenance Software Equipment hierarchy Training Module

The concepts covered in these CMMS training modules are used with any equipment maintenance software system, however all videos and examples use the MaintSmart CMMS solution. It is recommended that you download this software and use it for the purposes of CMMS University training.

Before beginning with your CMMS software training it is recommended that you familiarize yourself with the basic navigation and screen organization of the sample CMMS software program provided for this use. The first three videos train on initial configuration and system configuration of program-wide settings such as the database connection. Additionally, role-based access control permissions provide a way for all personnel in your organization to use the software at a level appropriate to their role in the organization. As such, this important topic is addressed early in the CMMS training program.

The second set of videos cover several of the basics and provide a general understanding of the flow of this CMMS system using the work order and the preventative maintenance screens.

It is important to understand the CMMS configuration components of the system. Our CMMS training modules cover this important aspect of CMMS set-up. A successful CMMS implementation begins with good planning. Of course, planning must include all potential users of the software. Below several basic components of the configuration process are listed:

  • Design the equipment hierarchy.
  • Link to a live database.
