French term or phrase: GMAO
"La GMAO doit être un outil permettant d’obtenir la meilleure disponibilité de l’outil de production. La rigueur et la structuration des informations de la GMAO apportent une transparence et un langage commun."

Not sure how GMAO should be translated, I am aware that it's "computer-aided management and manufacturing", however I'm looking for something better. In some places the format of the document doesn't allow such a long phrase (and I can't abbreviate as CAMM, since this is the name of a company). Other input would be greatly appreciated...

Thank you for the detailed answers! However, upon consulting my client, they decided that "CMMS", "Computerized Maintenance Management Solution", was best. I haven't found this translation anywhere else (yet), but it does seem quite good.

Explanation:
Hello. You can use the same abbreviation. Or the long version, both on link 1: "GTD systems and software engineering. ... Maintenance studies for our clients. Installation and starting-up of computerised management systems for the maintenance of industrial systems (GMAO). " But then someone else called it differently in 1995 (link 2): "Data processing (windows 95), November 1996 Formation on GMAO (maintenance attended by computer)". I'd gp for the first one myself. You'll find more instances under http://www.google.com/search?q=GMAO&hl=es&lr=lang_en&safe=of...
Good luck with it :-)

Explanation:
Just did a Google search for CMMS. It does seem to be an acronym for "computerized maintenance management systems", or, at least, the acronym for some specialized yellow pages:
