Before starting the work in a shift, the machine operators update the status of the Preventive Maintenance (PM) checklist on Paper. The Supervisor will review the same on daily basis.
Since the PM Checklist is updated daily, it is difficult for the maintenance team to follow the check sheets maintained on paper to make some informed decisions.
Prism helps the maintenance team digitize the PM checklists kept on papers. Prism simplifies the PM checklist work for the Machine Operators and the Supervisors.
Depending on the nature of the equipment, the PM checklist is updated daily/weekly/monthly/quartely/half-yearly/Annual.
Let's look at how we can create PM checklist in Prism software.
First, we need to upload all the PM tasks into Prism PM Module. Refer this post that explains how to add PM tasks in Prism PM Module.
Then click Tasks Module.
Go to PM Checklist Tab.
Then, create PM checklist and assign it one or more equipments.
Assign one ore more technicians to the PM checklist.
Schedule the PM checklist.
Prism tracks the PM schedule for all the equipments and alerts the Maintenance Team one week before. So that the Maintenance Team has enough time to reserve the equipment for Maintenance Work.
Open the Prism mobile app.
Scan the QR code of the machine if available.
Go to the PM checklist tab.
After completing each PM task in the list, update the status in the mobile app.
The user can also enter readings like pressure, temperature, etc.
The supervisor can review the same from his laptop or PC.
