When maintenance technicians perform well it has a tremendous impact on the organization’s proficiency to optimize its production system and meet its long-term objectives. Maintenance technicians with higher wrench times would able to repair equipment and machines faster to help their organizations to start/restart their production. As a result, organizations can secure a competitive advantage and increase revenue & profit.

According to a study by the Aberdeen Group, organizations utilizing work order optimizations and mobile solutions for plant maintenance see performance gains such as a 28% increase in completed work orders, an 11% jump in first-call resolution rate, and a 16% reduction in late work orders completions, per day per technician.

Active maintenance planning and scheduling help organizations to improve their wrench time. By optimizing the utilization of your maintenance crews (schedulers, planners, technicians, and operators), ineffective procedures are eliminated from the current practices. By equipping crews with the right technology solution, organizations can fully enhance their maintenance productivity.

According to the Aberdeen Group study, organizations running truly optimized service schedules had, on average, improved work orders by 20% and increased “wrench time” by 18% completed per day per technician.
