Transitions from Excel to Fabrico CMMS for maintenance management

Easy task management is very important to us

The task management features allow us to organize our workflow efficiently, ensuring that every maintenance activity is accounted for and completed on time. This level of organization is crucial in preventing machine breakdowns and maintaining our production schedules.

Company overview

Latecoere Bulgaria is a subsidiary of Latecoere, a global leader in aerostructures and interconnection systems for the aerospace industry. With a strong commitment to precision, innovation, and quality, Latecoere serves major aircraft manufacturers including Airbus, Boeing, and Embraer. The Bulgarian division, known for its rigorous standards and high-value orders, plays a critical role in the company's production and supply chain. 

Challenges

Before adopting a dedicated Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS), Latecoere Bulgaria relied heavily on Excel spreadsheets to manage their maintenance tasks. While Excel provided a basic level of functionality, it lacked real-time monitoring capabilities and made task management cumbersome. The manual process was prone to errors, and tracking the status of machinery in real-time was nearly impossible. Given the high stakes involved in aerospace manufacturing, even minor downtime due to machine failures could lead to significant financial losses.

Recognizing the need for a more efficient and reliable system, Latecoere Bulgaria began searching for a CMMS solution that could meet their stringent requirements. They needed a system that offered precision, reliability, and user-friendly features to streamline their maintenance processes and minimize downtime.

Why Latecoere Chose Fabrico

After evaluating several CMMS solutions, Latecoere Bulgaria chose Fabrico's CMMS. The decision was driven by their confidence in Fabrico's comprehensive suite of features tailored to meet the needs of demanding industrial environments. The key factors that influenced their choice included:

  1. User-Friendly Design: Fabrico's intuitive interface ensured that the transition from Excel to the new system would be smooth and that staff could quickly adapt to the new workflows.
  2. Advanced Analysis and Reporting: Fabrico's robust analytics and reporting tools provided Latecoere with deep insights into their maintenance operations, helping them make informed decisions and improve efficiency.
  3. Effective Task Management:The platform's task management capabilities allowed for better organization and tracking of maintenance activities, ensuring that nothing fell through the cracks.
  4. Predictive Maintenance: One of the most critical features for Latecoere was Fabrico's predictive maintenance. This capability enabled them to anticipate potential machine failures before they occurred, significantly reducing downtime and associated costs.

Implementation and Results

The implementation of Fabrico's CMMS at Latecoere Bulgaria was seamless. The user-friendly design facilitated a quick learning curve, and the comprehensive training provided by Fabrico ensured that all employees were proficient with the new system.

With Fabrico in place, Latecoere Bulgaria experienced immediate benefits:

  • Enhanced Real-Time Monitoring: The ability to monitor machinery in real-time allowed maintenance teams to respond swiftly to any issues, reducing unplanned downtime.
  • Improved Task Management: Maintenance tasks were now easier to assign, track, and complete, leading to increased productivity and fewer missed tasks.
  • Cost Savings: Predictive maintenance helped prevent costly machine breakdowns, ensuring that production schedules were not disrupted and expensive delays were avoided.
  • Better Decision-Making: The advanced reporting and analytics provided by Fabrico equipped Latecoere's management with the data needed to optimize their maintenance strategies and resource allocation.

The precision and reliability of Fabrico's solution have met the high standards required in the aerospace industry, ensuring that Latecoere can continue to fulfill their large and expensive orders without the risk of costly downtimes. The success of this implementation underscores the importance of choosing a CMMS solution that is not only feature-rich but also aligned with the specific needs of the industry. Fabrico's CMMS has proven to be that solution for Latecoere Bulgaria.
