EZ-MES: Enterprise Asset Management EAM

Equipment Management

The EZ-MES System comes with extensive Equipment Management. Schedule Preventive Maintenance, perform unscheduled maintenance. Keep track of equipment history, forward and backward traceability to part, lots and runs. Have direct access to equipment documentation and maintenance documentation. Full barcode support to label equipment and enter data.

Equipment Management Features Table

The following table shows the EZ-MES features with respect to Product Tracking and Genealogy. On how to use the Equipment Management read our Equipment Management manual

Feature Description Manual Config Use
Equipment Management Extensive Equipment Management with Equipment Definitions, Equipment Tracking, Preventive Maintenance, Unscheduled Maintenance, Equipment States, Equipment Performance.
List of equipment The equipment list shows all equipment instances with their, processing state, equipment state, current operation, etc.
Custom flow for new Equipment For each type of equipment, a procedure consisting of specific actions can be defined that has to be performed before the new equipment can be used in production
Rule checking for products Each equipment type can be limited to a number of products that are allowed to be processed by that piece of equipment. It will not be possible for the operator to select the wrong type of equipment.
'OR' operation for product rules Equipment can be tied to operations. Per operation one or multiple equipment types can be defined. E.g. in some case a fine drill can do what a course drill can do, but not the other way around.
Batch flows for Equipment Specific batch flows can be defined for equipment. Using the Batch Equipment Flows, multiple travelers can be processed by just processing a single equipment traveler. E.g. for ovens with specific temperature cycles
Equipment Data Collection Equipment data can be collected with a single entry. Each product or part that is going through that piece of equipment will have a record of that equipment entry. The user entries are highly customizable.
List of Parts per Equipment Each equipment instance keeps a list of all the parts that were processed by that piece of equipment, while each part keeps a reference to the equipment that was used.
List of Runs per Equipment Beside a list of parts that went through the equipment each piece of equipment will have a log of all the runs. This is useful when a single run can have many parts.
Specs for process parameters The equipment can block the traveler moving to the next spec when entered parameters are out of spec. The process specs are defined by the operation.
Product specs for equipment settings On each product type limits can be defined for the equipment operations. This way it is possible to define a different temperature specs for different products.
Equipment States The state of the equipment can change in a number of ways: Manual, Unscheduled and Scheduled maintenance, and when the equipment is used by production operations.
Equipment Manuals Electronic Equipment Manuals can be stored on the equipment definition and are directly accessible during the operation where the equipment is used.
Equipment Categories Different types of equipment can be grouped into categories
Hierarchical Equipment Definition A Bill of Material can be defined for equipment. Creating parent child relationships between the different parts of equipment
Equipment History A full account of any moment after the equipment was created about the equipment state, the maintenance, etc.
Material Consumption During operations, for production or for maintenance, equipment can consume other materials.
Setup Flows Setup flows for equipment can be defined. The flow can consist of multiple operations, recording equipment data, and changing the state of the equipment.
Equipment change over Equipment can be set up to accept only certain parts, the setup flow can change the the types of parts the equipment can accept. So it can be configured that if an equipment is setup for part A, it will not be able to process part type B, and vice versa.
