for You

I last wrote about production. Now let's see what can be done to ensure that production can operate.
One very important factor in the maintenance.


This program is made to register, handle and evaluate all repair and maintenance data in / from production.
The program is designed to process improvement activities, evaluation, display and print them.

1. Intall / Login

  1) You are ordering from me the program.
  2) I will send You an installationset.
  3) After installing and startup the program, the next menue will be displayed:

This window is used for login and selecting the communication language.

  4) After selecting the language with the flags, You can login.

1.1 Change Your password

With this menue You can change Your default password, wich is usualy „1”.
After login You come to the main menu.

2. Main menue

This surface is made to collect all functions of the program.
The functions are sorted in different groups.
Of course every rights / level has a different availability of the functions.

The groups are as fallows:

1. Production lines                  6. Spare parts
2. Spare part suppliers          7. Downtime registration

It is designed to print the instructions and acting on the machines.
In the following parts of my series, I present the possibility of the introduction of Autonomous Maintenance (TPM) included in the lean manufacturing within the framework of a workshop.
