Default Maintenance Schedule

We are using an old excel sheet and was wondering what some of you use for a electrical maintenance schedule on equipment. Any software advice out there that isn't ridiculously expensive?

AND you get a lot of other features for the $half million.

You could use a shared calendar on a Google account, that's simple and cheap / free. If your company uses Outlook / Exchange / Office365, you could make a calendar in there easily too.

Looked into doing it that way but was hoping for something that speeds up the layout process. Between our largest customers we are looking at about 1200 motors alone.

I wouldn't wish SAP on my worst enemy. What an absolute nightmare of a system.

Unless you're literally tracking thousands of individual tasks, I think Excel and simple email calendars are the way to go.

But surely there's a way to break that down into manageable groups?

It wouldn't make sense to track multiple customers in the same account to begin with.

We havel maintenance programs for each customer, broken down by location, then by facility and then by asset IDs at each facility.

We dont care about maintenance notifications for motor 20745225-A3. We only care if a specific facility has been maintained according to schedule, and we know that motor is on the maintenance schedule.

Anything, including SAP has to be better than J.D. Edwards. I hope ISIS takes to JDE to maintain their fleet of weapons. They will lose for sure. And I swear that's why they pay me so much here... to tangle with this J.D.E.Pile.Of.S.

It is possible to initially lay out the events / tasks in Excel or other format and import them into a Google calendar, then maintain the calendar in the web interface or Outlook.
