Preventive Maintenance Repair & Warranty Claims
JOMAR's PMR – Preventive Maintenance Repair Software can be configured to meet the scope and scalability of small to midsize companies and multinational corporations.
PMR Application Areas
- Manufacturing – maintenance and equipment repairs integrated with production schedules
- Distribution Centers – equipment maintenance and repairs in warehouse locations
- Utility Services and Electric Power Generation Stations – installation, repair, maintenance and refurbishing of equipment, power transmission lines, poles, transformers, turbines, and generators
- Communications – installation, maintenance and repair of communication equipment
- Armed Forces – maintenance of equipment across land and naval bases, warehouses, repair depots and staging locations
- Service Centers – automotive, aircraft, vehicle fleet, pulp and paper mills, and steel mills
Integration of JOMAR's Enterprise Software with PMR
- Mobile Software for field services and job sites
- ERP, Supply Chain Management and Visual Schedule Board
- Purchasing and Inventory Control for repair parts and raw materials
- Repair and PM Orders – complete tracking of repair parts and materials used for Warranty Claims and Traceability records
- Costing of repairs, preventive maintenance and reconditioning of equipment
- Image and document processing for drawings, illustrations for repairs and assembly or parts identifications, especially for ordering old repair parts
- On-line Purchase Order and Purchase Requisition processing
- Procedures for 3-way match, P.O., receipts and invoice
- Re-order reporting is based on min/max Inventory levels of repair parts and supplies
- MRP – Material Requirements Planning also triggers 'Re-ordering' and generation of Purchase Orders for review prior to releasing them to suppliers
- Monitoring procurement of parts and outside service costs against budgets
- Status reporting of repair parts delivery and outside services
Downtime of equipment is part of the maintenance, repair and equipment utilization reporting.
PM Frequency Calculations
The Frequency Calculations for Preventive Maintenance can be based on: Running Hours, Pieces Produced and Age of Equipment. Specific company criteria can also be used for Preventive Maintenance Frequency Calculations.
Scheduling with JOMAR's Visual Schedule Board
Schedules consider the capacity of available ‘skill type’ resources and tools, parts, materials and supplies available. Parts in Inventory or parts on order from suppliers can be allocated to maintenance or repair orders.
Preventive Maintenance Schedules are based on the Frequency Calculations of the pre-determined equipment maintenance routines.
Daily, weekly, monthly and periodic maintenance routines or procedures (by equipment) are part of the frequency calculations. Equipment repair schedules are comprised of regular (or planned) repair orders. Emergency repair orders are inserted in the repair order schedule.
Maintenance and repair orders can be displayed by date over a selected schedule horizon. The Schedule Board allows to set-up a timeline for review – monthly, weekly, daily and by shift of maintenance, repair and refurbishing schedules.
R.F. Data Collection
Equipment maintenance, reconditioning and repair data is collected with barcoded orders. Material issues and purchasing receipts can also be barcoded for data collection. The repair and maintenance data collected is integrated with Inventory and Production Control. Materials, Supplies and Time are recorded against a Repair or Maintenance Order (i.e. Work Order) by equipment model or serial number. This data is the basis of the Repair and Service Cost History for management decision support.
Repair Parts Inventory Control
Repair Parts 'Availability' by item, assembly, software control unit (release level), repair kit, raw material and supplies are integrated with Repair Order Control. The Repair Parts Inventory is tracked by item and serial number, steel coil (heat number) and type of cable or coils of wire.
- Physical Repair Inventory includes 'wall-to-wall' and 'cycle' counting
- Repair parts can be transferred between plants, warehouses and repair depots
- Users have on-line visibility across purchase orders and inventory or receiving locations for parts or supplies on-hand and received or allocated to repair or maintenance orders
PMR Costing and History Data
The on-line 'cost roll-up' provides maintenance and repair costs by major assemblies and the total PMR cost by equipment. Maintenance routines and repair orders (or procedures) can be set-up for major assemblies and equipment if the cost break-out is required in this format. PMR Costing includes materials (parts), labor (direct or indirect) and outside services.
The repair and service cost history is maintained for review of the maintenance and repair costs by equipment model.
The cost of major equipment repair requests can be assessed based on defect problem diagnoses and the repair and service cost history in the equipment data base. Repair and cost history data assists PMR management in scheduling a major repair or reconditioning job and in planning of capital equipment acquisitions.
The Annual Plan for equipment maintenance, repair and reconditioning provides the data for manpower and parts requirements planning. Manpower requirements are based on 'skill type' (Mechanics, Electricians) required for the Preventive Maintenance Routines stored in the PMR data base. Planning for major equipment repairs and reconditioning is based on specific equipment and the repair or reconditioning procedures. The implementation of planning software is optional.
