Our posts Be Strategic with Building Scheduled Maintenance and How To Test The Quality Of Your Preventative Maintenance look at how to get the most out of equipment maintenance. In this post, we will look at how you can use data to evaluate whether to replace or repair equipment, even while a technician is on site.

In our post Be Strategic with Your Building's Scheduled Maintenance, we looked at the benefits of moving beyond arbitrary PM schedules and how using your building's data can help you spend money wisely. We now look at how you can use building data to see how well PMs are being carried out.
