Equipment360 was designed to automate and collect actionable information about your fleet so that, as Equipment Managers, you would be freed-up to solve the problem of managing age and care of your equipment . Here are a few quick time-saving tips to help you work through your day:
Add colors that can show certain PM warnings highlighted in yellow, damaged work orders with bold orange font, or work orders that have been sitting without any attention for too long as RED rows. By giving your brain indicators that jump out from the screen, you will never miss work that might save your equipment from falling apart.
We want you to be able to track all of your work inside of Equipment360. As a result, you will end up with a lot of work orders. Use Work Order tags to put helpful and searchable tags on each work order to easily find similar work orders. This will also allow your mechanics to communicate, with searchable tags, what is going on with the work order back to the office. You could use this to search for all work orders: waiting for core, parts on order, left door damage, wrong color, rework, rust damage, not broken, etc. Using these tags will set you up to be able to find everything you want to look for, and create reports with only those work orders.
Current meter readings are critical for Equipment360 to be able to automate and notify shop managers when a preventative maintenance needs to be performed. When a meter has not been updated for a while, that is a good indication that it is either not being used, and is costing money in a yard, or that someone or some integration piece, like a GPS device is not sending information and needs to be looked at. Our equipment worksheet can help shop managers report on equipment with readings that have not been updated in a while. Using the above tip for highlighting rows with certain rules you can make that list pop out at you. In this example, I have a lot of meter readings that are older than a year:
If you have 30 mechanics, but you are only in charge of 3 mechanics then scrolling through the list of 30 every time that you have to review time cards is unnecessary. You can filter this mechanic list to only show you those 2 mechanics. The dashboard will also adjust your pending time cards list to reflect that filter. Set up “My Mechanic” filters (saved per user) to see only those pending time cards that relate to your mechanics.
