I set up a CMMS for work
using the MEX package - manages a fleet, multiple assets, inspections, planned maintenance, drawings register, suppliers and more if you want it to.
Great program. I love it. Simple, intuitive, customisable. Way overkill for a single
small vessel though and its not a freebie.
Our improved fleet servicing after implementing the CMMS has dramatically reduced breakdowns and downtime. So much so that the extra mechanic
we fought hard to put on is getting harder to justify.
If I could get a free version of something similar to MEX with its ease of use I would use in a heartbeat for our boat and home. Again, probably overkill but I can be a systems nerd at times.
boat maintenance system consists of a small whiteboard beside the hour meter with the next service
hours in red, a spreadsheet, handwritten maintenance logbook with key part numbers, suppliers etc, recurring reminders on computer calendar and at times a fast failing memory!
