We get asked the question "Are CMMS and work order software the same thing?" every once in a while and it's an interesting question because it has a few answers. It's kind of like asking "Is a steak a meal?" Sure a nice medium-rare steak is great and delicious all, but what about the potatoes, the asparagus, the mushrooms? Okay now I'm just making myself hungry so I'll get back to the point. Yes, work order software is part of a maintenance program, but it's not all there is to it.
