About the features.
explanation of the system.
Create your equipment catalog and document in the MP all the
information related to each of them, such as images,
locations, drawings, attached files, specifications, notes,
guarantees, supplier data, etc. The MP offers great
versatility since it allows the user to set his own
customized fields to capture the equipment catalog.
LOCATIONS CATALOG.- Structure in the MP the location
tree which will allow you to document the location of every
equipment. Thanks to the tree structure of the locations
catalog, you can establish filters to locate the equipment
in any level of the tree.
MAINTENANCE ROUTINES.- Document your routine
maintenance plans for equipment and locations in the MP and
indicate the routine activities that must be performed and
their frequency. The MP allows establishing maintenance
plans based on time or on a reading, such as kilometers,
hours used, etc. You can even set combined plans with dates
and readings, whatever occurs first.
AUTOMATIC PROGRAMMING OF ROUTINE MAINTENANCE.- Once
the user defines the maintenance plans or routines, the MP
automatically estimates the dates in which each activity
must be carried out, based on the date of the last
maintenance job and on the frequencies established in the
AUTOMATIC ESTIMATION OF THE MAINTENANCE CALENDARS.-
In the maintenance calendars, the MP marks the dates when
the different maintenance jobs must be performed and the MP
keeps those calendars up to date. Due to the several
activities that must normally be controlled and due to the
fact that calendars must be continuously updated, you can
have all the information updated with only one computer
based system such as the MP
REQUESTS OVER THE INTERNET.- Report maintenance
requests over the Internet. Maintenance requests over the
Internet go directly to maintenance personnel. Each time a
person reports a maintenance request over the Internet, a
window opens in the maintenance managers’ screen and
indicates the jobs reported or requested by personnel. On
the other hand, the persons who make a request can consult
the status of their request over the Internet, i.e., if it
was read, the date scheduled to perform the job, if the job
has already been performed, etc. WORK ORDERS.- The MP analyzes the scheduled job dates
and reports the jobs that must be carried out during the
period. Select the jobs and automatically create the work
orders from the MP. The MP assigns a consecutive folio
number to each work order created by the user. The same work
order may include one or several routine or non routine
maintenance jobs. You can also include one or several
equipment or locations in the same work order.
DISTRIBUTION OF WORK LOADS.- The MP has tools to help
you distribute the work orders among the maintenance
personnel according to the area of expertise and estimated
duration of each order.
UPDATE OF JOBS PERFORMED.- Once the jobs are
performed, the user must report the jobs performed in the
MP. When the user reports in the MP any routine maintenance
job performed, the MP automatically creates the following
date to carry out that job again. As the jobs are marked as
performed, a graphic control shows the progress of each WO.
PREDICTIVE MEASUREMENTS.- There are maintenance jobs
which imply taking a measurement, such as temperature,
vibration, wear and tear, etc. Document the value of the
measurements from your equipment in the MP. The MP shows
those values in a graph and provides alerts for all
equipment with a measurement near or close to the limits.
SPARE PARTS AND CONSUMABLES INVENTORY.- The
Professional and Entrepreneurial MP include a very complete
inventory program called Spare Parts Inventory, which allows
efficiently controlling materials and spare parts stock,
input and output movements, Kardex, valuing the inventory
with different methods, estimating the supply, suppliers and
purchases, etc. Another feature is the option to manage
multi-warehouses and equivalent brands for the same product
and bar code. Although the inventory is a program
independent from the MP, the user can connect from the MP to
the Inventory database to consult stock, automatically
create output vouchers for the materials and determine the
spare parts and consumables necessary to perform the
LABOR CATALOG.- In the MP, the user captures the
Labor Catalog where the names, areas of expertise, hourly
costs and extraordinary costs of the personnel involved in
the maintenance tasks are registered. The information of
this catalog will allow designating persons in charge of the
work orders as well as registering the time spent working on
each work order.
SUPPLIERS AND EXTERNAL SERVICES CATALOG.- The MP has
an equipment and services suppliers catalog. The equipment
registered in the MP can be related to its respective
supplier. The user can consult the supplier’s information
online, such as contacts, telephones, etc.. He can also
create a catalog with the services offered by each supplier
and document the services consumed in the MP.
TOOLS RECEIPT AND RETURN CONTROL.- The Professional
and Entrepreneurial MP include a program called Tools
Control. This program allows controlling the receipts and
returns of all tools issued to workers. The program allows
consulting online who has or where each tool is. Before
performing a maintenance job, the user can consult the
availability or the warehouse stock of the tools to be used
to perform the jobs assigned from the MP.
RESOURCES AND ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION.- The
association of resources with activities consists in
establishing the material resources (spare parts and
consumables), labor, external services and tools necessary
to perform each routine maintenance activity.
RESOURCE FLOW.- Based on the resources necessary to
carry out each activity and the dates scheduled to perform
them, the MP estimates the quantities of each resource to be
used in the following days or months and the scheduled
WAREHOUSE VOUCHERS.- Automatically create warehouse
vouchers in the MP and download them when creating your
output movement from the spare parts inventory.
CONSUMPTION.- The MP allows documenting the
consumption of spare parts, labor services and external
services used in the performance of the maintenance jobs.
This allows us to query the resources used on each equipment
and to analyze maintenance costs.
AUTOMATIC SUPPLY CALCULATION.- The Spare Parts
Inventory consults the MP to calculate the just in time
supply of spare parts and consumables which must be acquired
to comply with the maintenance programs. The calculation is
based on the stock and the scheduled resources.
HISTORY OF CONSUMPTION AND JOBS PERFORMED.- The MP
keeps all the history information related to the jobs
performed and the resources used in an organized, updated
and available manner for review.
SCHEDULED VS. PERFORMED GRAPH.- Graph in which the
number of scheduled activities is compared with the number
of performed activities on a monthly basis.
FAILURES AND ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS.- Identify the
equipment with the most failures, the most frequent types of
failures and their root causes.
GRAPH HISTORY.- The history of the maintenance jobs
performed for each equipment is presented in a graph for a
certain time period, indicating the protected and
unprotected periods. This graph is an indicator to assess
the equipment vulnerability and shows how close the
performance of the maintenance jobs has been to the
scheduled jobs. It also allows relating failures with
maintenance plans, helping to make the necessary adjustments
in maintenance plans to avoid repeating a specific failure.
GRAPH OF COSTS, STOPPAGES, ETC.- Create many
different queries, graphs and reports related to maintenance
management such as costs graphs, stoppages graphs, etc.
MAINTENANCE INDEXES.- The MP calculates three
maintenances indexes (Average Time between Failures, Average
Time for Repair and Availability)
GUARANTEES CONTROL.- The MP allows documenting the
guarantees of the equipment, whether it is the equipment
guarantee, a spare part guarantee or even a service
guarantee. You can query all the guarantees in effect for an
equipment in this module.
LIBRARIES.- A library is a file with several
prefabricated maintenance plans from different typical
equipment. The MP includes libraries with a wide variety of
prefabricated maintenance plans which will make the MP
SECURITY.- For the security of your maintenance
system, the MP allows adding the users who will have access
to the MP. The registered users can access the program with
an access code and may have total or limited authorization
to access different modules and execute specific functions.
