Automate and speed up your equipment maintenance!
An equipment maintenance system must have five components.
- Settable dates for maintenance of the equipment
- The current location of all the equipment
- A schedule to enable maintenance to be carried out by location for the preset dates
- A set of tests and possible results that can be recorded
- A method of recording those results
In PASS Locator each item type can have different criteria and checks assigned to it. For example a check on a PC might record its hard disk capacity and condition of the monitor/keyboard etc whereas the state of an office chair, pressure washer or toolkit will have different criteria. When entering the category the maintenance intervals are set up enabling scheduling to take place.
Every time the item moves the new location is recorded by scanning the barcode on the item or form sheet. Then when the maintenance schedule is run, items are listed either by category or by location. This avoids searching for items and overlooking others when the maintenance is carried out.
The barcoded maintenance schedule is run for the groups of assets and/or locations that you select and it will show you which ones need checking together with the test codes
Testing and entering results
When the maintenance is carried out the PDA will display the checks that are necessary and the possible results. Variable results can also be put in. Both Checks and Results are printed in a barcode format for easy entry on the PDA
The PDA data is uploaded in either batch mode or real time depending on the wireless signal and the report on the maintenance can then be run
