You don't have to accept unscheduled downtimes in your production as an unavoidable cost. You can easily optimize the maintenance of your production lines, machinery and devices with our fully integrated MES CAT module CAT Maintenance. Significantly minimize quality issues, waste and other sources of loss to remain competitive. Reducing all forms of inefficiency and minimizing capital investment by maximizing the use of existing assets has never been so easy.
The CAT Maintenance module is an easy to use digital communication tool across the entire enterprise. It helps save valuable time by providing a mobile maintenance processing option in which inspection and maintenance orders are entered directly at the inspection or maintenance point. Maintenance points are identified with RFID. Thanks to seamless SAP integration, entries are automatically made into the SAP system. Error messages can be logged directly on site, even registering the precise location of the error, if known. Maintenance staff can then directly search for spare parts via a mobile device - for example by classification or technical attributes of spare parts. Materials retrieved for the order can be immediately entered-even during the night shift or in the weekend.
Link your production directly with maintenance: Using the CAT Maintenance module, it is possible to be on top of preventive maintenance, spare part consumption and downtime tracking all while using modern interfaces such as RFID scanning and mobile devices.
Benefit from precisely tracking the usage of wear and tear parts, such as bearings, belts, pumps or felts on your machines. The tracking allows the precise plaining of maintenance, avoiding severe damage and unplanned downtime.
Preventive maintenance can reduce unscheduled downtimes and the associated costs that result from lost output. Easily track numerous key figures, such as 'meantime to repair', 'meantime between repair' or 'top 10 maintenance causes' and adjust your planning accordingly.
MES CAT makes it possible to collect task-based maintenance data. Linking production and quality data to maintenance task records makes it possible to obtain information regarding machine and tool downtimes and standard downtimes. In addition to entering maintenance personnel times, external services can be assigned to cost objects.
The combination of spare parts inventory management and consumption postings for maintenance orders offered by MES CAT, provides a significant potential in cost reduction. With the transparency achieved in terms of the availability of spare parts in stock, current asset levels can be reduced, effecting a reduction in capital expenditures as well.
