As the organization spread out its manufacturing units across the globe, EEW internal maintenance team faced difficulties in streamlining the asset management, inventory management and manufacturing facilities management across multiple locations.
The multitude of processes meant different Standard Operating Procedures(SOP) for various equipment. Standardization of the SOP’s for asset and facility management was the need of the hour. Enforcing adherence to these processes and upkeep of maintenance operations to the expected standards with manual approaches using excel sheets and paper was challenging, pressing the need for a cloud and mobile app based digital solution.
The management wished to have an elaborate account of the performance of the assets and technical team to scrutinize the reports, identify areas requiring attention and initiate corrective actions. They couldn’t measure work performance using manual approach.
The management wished to track the usage pattern of spares and consumables utilized for maintenance operation – i.e., the asset which consumed the spare, the period of maximum consumption, etc.
