Custom Maintenance Reports Serve as Tool for Performance Improvement at Saint-Gobain Containers


Houston, TX - - August 26, 2008 - - Global PTM, provider of Maintenance Operational Improvement (MOI) solutions, recently delivered several custom maintenance reports for Saint-Gobain Containers to use with their maintenance software system (Infor EAM). The new reports enable Saint-Gobain management to have comprehensive views of maintenance performance related to job and resource scheduling, equipment history, work orders and down time. Global PTM designed the reports to reside as a menu item within the web-based maintenance software system giving users easy access to reports specific to their area and departmental activity.

Important to the various departments are custom developed cost center reports that reflect work execution related to labor, materials and equipment as well as budget variance analysis. Information in the cost center reports is evaluated to help determine where improvement opportunities exist for asset reliability performance. Details of activity show work order history, classifications of equipment where work was performed and date ranges of completed work. Operations and maintenance department coordinators use the reports daily to set priorities based on staffing availability, required materials and production schedules.

“As we incurred upgrades to our maintenance system, the need for advanced reports beyond our standard report writer became obvious,” says Dave Mounts, Asset Reliability Model Support Specialist, Saint-Gobain Containers. “We turned to Global PTM because of their expertise in advanced report writing development and their familiarity with the Infor EAM system. Global PTM demonstrated a wealth of custom report knowledge and they delivered exactly what we needed. Their flexibility and ability to adapt to our needs was key to a successful project. With these reports, we now have actionable information immediately available and have improved our reporting efficiencies over our previous methods.”

Global PTM continues to provide Saint-Gobain Containers with custom report development services as well as adjusting existing reports to meet the dynamic needs of Saint-Gobain’s overall maintenance operations.
