PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

 

MAINTENANCE ACTIVITY CODE FM

Maintenance activities are any type of scheduled labor to be performed on the machines, tools, or dies/molds.  The activity can be based on any of the following types of frequencies:  hours, cycles, weekly, monthly, bimonthly, yearly, specific date, or a number of days.  The same maintenance activity code can have different frequencies for different pieces of equipment.  You can specify whether the activity is performed by an employee or an outside vendor.  Preventative maintenance reports can be run for all activity due for a specific vendor.

 

MACHINE/TOOL/DIE PM FM

Assign maintenance activity codes to specific machines, tools or dies/molds.  Specific frequencies for each activity are defined at this level.  Bill of materials for the activity can also be defined.   Free form notes are also available for detailed instructions.  A copy option is available that will allow you to easily setup activity for similar pieces of equipment.

 

USAGE/MAINTENANCE INQUIRY

View either production usage or maintenance activity for machines, tools, or dies/molds.

Shows all production reports and preventative maintenance work orders.

 

PM REQUIREMENTS REPORT

Lists all upcoming PM activities based on selections made.  You can specify items that within a certain percentage of being due or items that are within a certain number of days of being due.  This report gives you a list of what is due, but the same logic is used in the Create PM Work Orders so you do not need to run this report if you’re creating work orders automatically.

 

WORK ORDERS

Create, maintain, and print PM Work Orders.  Work orders can manually be created or the Create PM work orders update can be used to automatically create work orders for activity that is due.  One work order is created for each machine/tool/die.  Any notes that have been setup for the activity will automatically print on each work order.  Once the activity has been completed, record the amount of time and cost (if desired).  Update the activity and all of the counters are reset.

 

PM HISTORY

Handy report that provides a tool to analyze your preventative maintenance activity.  Use in conjunction with the Efficiency/Downtime reports to determine whether the PM activity is accurate or if changing the frequency of certain activities would eliminate some of the unscheduled down time.

 

CREATE PM WORK ORDERS

Automatically creates work orders for preventative maintenance based on the criteria selected.    Work orders can be created for any activity currently due or due within a certain time frame.
