Maintx helps you modernize your maintenance management processes and meet ISO standards.
International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certification is used to meet customer preferences or regulatory/contractual requirements. ISO develops international management system standards to ensure that products and services are safe, reliable, and of good quality. ISO standards help organizations reduce costs, minimize waste and errors, and access new markets.
ISO 9000 standards provide organizations with guidance and tools to ensure that their products and services meet customers’ requirements and that their quality is consistently improved. ISO standards have been revised to require computerized maintenance management system programs in place of older manual systems. Maintx is a maintenance management system that helps organizations modernize their maintenance management processes and meet ISO standards.
The philosophy behind ISO certification is to document standard operating procedures, adhere to them, and be able to prove compliance. Implementing Maintx doesn’t guarantee that a company will achieve ISO accreditation but having a full-featured maintenance management system will help you gain certification by showing auditors that you keep precise equipment maintenance records.
The management of ISO standards for maintenance of software related functions can be accomplished in Maintx with minimal work. Maintx keeps data in a centralized system and prevents the possibility of accessing outdated information. The users can create and edit standard operating procedures, and real-time information is available for on-screen viewing.
ISO standards require the identification of equipment having a direct impact on the quality of a product. Maintx users can both identify equipment as ISO-critical or non-ISO critical. They can also identify which employees have the skills required to maintain ISO-critical equipment. Additionally you can tag procedures in Maintx as ISO or non-ISO related so that you can sort records and find the appropriate procedures during an audit.
Safety procedures, which outline the steps required to do a job safely and correctly, are the basis of many ISO equipment maintenance procedures. Maintx attaches safety procedures to preventive maintenance routines, equipment records, and work orders. Maintx also includes a complete reporting system. A variety of reports can be generated to demonstrate compliance with ISO standards.
Monitor and manage activities
An very important role that maintenance management systems play in a maintenance organization is giving users the ability to monitor and manage preventive maintenance activities. Every hour you spend maintaining equipment affects profitability. Features in Maintx that support preventive maintenance activities include the monitoring of equipment criticality, equipment data entry, and the tracking of spare parts inventory. The spare parts inventory management feature of Maintx allows you to track essential inventory to ensure that the right parts are available when equipment breaks down.
Preparing for ISO certification streamlines the maintenance management process and increases efficiency across the board. Maintx can be used to track and set due dates for preventive maintenance tasks as well as generate work orders and assign them to the appropriate technicians based on their skills. Implementing Maintx will enhance your maintenance department’s productivity by increasing equipment up time, reducing unforeseen repairs, and enabling you to distribute preventive maintenance tasks more evenly.
