Better ways for field calibration

Carry less  Use multifunctional devices that are easy to carry, so you don’t need to carry many devices with you. Just carry one.

Go paperless  Use automatic documenting calibrators so you don’t need to make manual notes and carry pen or paper with you. It’s easier and there are no writing mistakes.

Be ready for the field conditions – It can get rough out in the field, so make sure your equipment is suitable for the wet, dusty and sometimes even hazardous conditions.

 

Better ways for workshop calibration

Configure it for you – Make sure your workshop equipment is modular and versatile. They can be planned and configured to suit your specific needs.

Make it ergonomic – Make sure the workshop placement is ergonomic and comfortable to work in.

 

Better ways to manage your calibrations

Don’t calibrate too much – Calibration management software should save you precious time and money by automating processes and help you avoid unnecessary calibrations.

Avoid manual paper-work  Make sure your calibration management software can talk with your documenting calibrators to automate all the documentation in your calibration process.

Make work orders flow automatically – You should be able to integrate your calibration management with your maintenance management software, to provide automated and paperless flow of work orders and calibration results.

 

Better ways to manage your maintenance inspections

Make it easy to manage – Get a management tool that makes it easy and automated to manage all your maintenance inspections, safety checks and scheduling to work.

Go mobile – The majority of inspections are done out in the field, so use a mobile device to help you out in the field.

Go paperless – Make sure your management software talks with your mobile devices, so it all goes automatically and is fully paperless.

 

Better ways to implement calibration systems

Do it for a reason  What do you expect from your calibration process, tools and people? Make sure you can answer this upfront, as it will guide you and the resources you use throughout the entire process.

Focus on people  Buying new calibration tools is easy. Getting someone to use them is not always so. Focus on thinking how the new tools affect people’s work in your organization.

Split it into steps To make sure you get involvement from all relevant people and that you finish the project in time, within budget and with the expected benefits, consider using a proven project model.
