It allows managers and crews to track, plan, and document preventive and corrective maintenance tasks while ensuring compliance with manufacturer standards and recommended timelines.

Typically, such software includes features like spare parts and equipment inventory management, maintenance history tracking, scheduling of periodic inspections, and generation of performance reports.
