We fire up our mail program and suddenly are inundated by an Inbox chock-full of what is basically rubbish. A recent podcast from The Economist about wikis concludes that as a professional culture we use email for something for which it was not designed. Roughly 30% of employees’ emails are spam. Not the Viagra kind of spam, but what is called “occupational” spam: emails from colleagues or new and existing companies fishing for our business.
How did email go from being a model of efficiency to something that bottlenecks our inboxes, overwhelming us with volume, and ending up stalling our productivity?
Email got its start as asynchronous communication – talking to people not online at the same time as we are. But even now that we’re more connected than ever, we continue to employ email in the same way.
Analysts recommend we use either the phone or instant messaging for the people who are around at the same time as us. For those who are not, halt! Don’t send that Word document via email; use a wiki instead.
Ask yourself: do we need a written and timed record when we ask for information or provide materials? If either qualification is unnecessary, then use a more rapid (and disposable) form of communication.
One of the things we all should consider is when someone is about to invest in a new software package, does the company that makes it and sells it actually USE it themselves? Every amendment, improvement and new feature added to SIMMS 2016 has been designed and tested by the very people who wanted it to exist. Such reliable navigation is to be expected because accurately tracking your time down to the minute, managing your stock and processing your payments – both incoming and outgoing – were initially crucial activities to our company and, thus, became a part of SIMMS 2016 so that they can remain reliable for you.
Here it is twenty years after we began and the waters are still just fine. And what’s more important, both our company and our clients are still here. It’s what we hoped for, of course, but mostly it’s what we planned for: our company and our clients’ companies all still afloat, bigger and better than ever.
It’s amazing what sound tools and dedicated work can achieve.

We’ve all heard of distressing work accidents, whether it’s a sixteen wheeler that lost control on the road, or a piece of equipment that stopped working and caused downtime in production.
Following preventive maintenance practices is essential to the care and monitoring of equipment, vehicles and buildings, as well as following industry standards. Preventive maintenance is also important when it comes to extending the life of equipment, vehicles and buildings.
Preventive maintenance just makes good business sense when you want to avoid premature failures, unnecessary production loss and safety violations.
Best practices in preventive maintenance consists of evaluating equipment, vehicles and facilities through activities such as performing tests, reading measurements, replacing parts, making necessary adjustments and performing repairs on a regular basis.
Preventive maintenance includes pre-planned scheduling of inspections, recurring service and maintenance performed by trained employees and agents that are familiar with the proper use of tools and instruments. It applies to every item separately according to manufacturer’s recommendations or industry regulated standards.
Different kinds of preventive maintenance include:
- Mechanical repairs
- Road repairs
- Facility repairs
- Ground repairs
- Vehicle repairs
- Equipment repairs
Planning Your Maintenance Schedule
The first step is to list your equipment and assign the proper identification codes and numbers to help with tracking and scheduling. Don’t forget to indicate the health status and depreciation value of items. Schedule downtime for each asset that is essential to your overall preventive maintenance goals. Better to plan your downtime, rather than have an unexpected surprise. Also, create procedures in the workplace that allows operators and workers to identify issues that may not be a high priority, but needs to be addressed. And finally, schedule routine inspections to ensure repairs, replacements and minor adjustments have been completed to industry standards.
Once you’ve addressed procedures, prioritize preventive maintenance in the workplace. Not only does this make planning for the availability of inventory parts used in repairs easier, it also distributes your costs more evenly and ensures workplace safety. You want to avoid a complete system shutdown due to problems and hazards. Set aside time in your day for a quick evaluation of scheduled maintenance and repairs. Prioritize preventive maintenance by scheduling recurring maintenance and using past work-order records to assess the performance and depreciation of your assets.
Train Your Team
Train your maintenance team in correct service and repair procedures, corresponding to industry standards. It is crucial to your success and it’s the best way to make sure that they learn the right way to perform maintenance and repairs. Make sure everyone is competent in using tools and instruments. Also, safeguard against accidents by properly training and providing access to safety equipment, such as Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), as well as gloves, vests, safety hats, ear and sight protection, when necessary.
Put Your Plan into Practice
Once you’ve identified your list of items that need regular preventive maintenance and you’ve set up a routine for each shift to follow, you’ll want to go through each of your inventoried items and determine the tasks to put into action for each item. Starting with inspections to identify, isolate and test assets, to regular servicing and repairs so the item can be restored to its operational condition, or preserved through regular maintenance. Developing a preventive maintenance list of tasks to do, when they need to be done and the frequency needed to perform those tasks, is a good start. Following up with details such as the assigned worker that will perform the tasks, completes a paper trail that functions as an audit trail and documentation to ensure certification. Your operators, drivers and agents are your first line of defense against unexpected breakdowns and repairs.
SIMMS 2017’s Tool Crib provides a powerful equipment and tool management system that allows organizations in any industry to gain control of their tools, equipment or even firearms inventory. SIMMS helps companies of all sizes maximize equipment and tool utilization and improve productivity by ensuring the right tool is in the right place when it is needed.
Using a comprehensive tool, location, serial number and employee database, coupled with a simple and accurate bar-code based transaction system, SIMMS’ Tool Crib tracks the issue and return of assets to employees and contractors, and the transfer of assets between various warehouse, job-site and tool room locations (even if you employ fleet vehicles as locations).
By using SIMMS’ Tool Crib, site managers will have accurate, up-to-date inventories of their tools and equipment, which could significantly reduce the volume of tools and equipment that get lost, hoarded or removed from the work site. You can easily manage your equipment and tool inventory using scanner and bar code technology, enabling workers to quickly get and return the tools they require with or without a tool crib attendant while keeping the employee accountable for them.
Workers simply scan their ID Card badges to start the process and then scan the item bar-code and/or item serial number of the item(s) they are utilizing, then the workers confirm that the list matches their inventory and then choose whether they are checking out or returning inventory. Each and every time that item is checked out or checked in the transactions are recorded in your system, time-stamped, attributed to the user allowing you to see who performed the transactions and why.
SIMMS’ Tool Crib is the module you need to achieve complete control over your tools and equipment. Give it a free trial today: http://simmssoftware.com/inventory-software/Download-Trial.aspx
