Asset management integration with calibration software is possible utilizing Beamex CMX calibration software. It can easily be integrated with asset management software including CMMS or ERP systems, such as SAP, Maximo or Emerson’s AMS Device Manager. This is accomplished through a a standardized, but configurable solution–the Beamex Business Bridge. Detailed calibration data and traceable calibration records are stored in CMX, while plant hierarchy and instruments are created and maintain in the parent system. When calibration work has been performed, work order acknowledgements can be sent to the CMMS or ERP.
This standardized, but configurable software solution keeps the CMMS or ERP informed of the work completed while CMX provides a database to store vital instrument information. The instrument information is necessary to maintain for quality control and audits – thus equipping organizations with the best in class Asset Management and Calibration Management solution.
Software system integration allows for the electronic transfer of data which saves the time from manually re-entering data. This automation creates an environment where work orders sent from the CMMS or ERP systems can be accomplished in a less amount of time than traditional processes.
In the CMMS or ERP, calibrations are planned and work orders are transferred and automatically populated into Beamex CMX calibration software, with the calibration due date and work order number, as well as related information. From CMX, instruments due for calibration are sent to a documenting calibrator. Then, calibrations are performed in the field or a workshop. Afterwards, calibration results are uploaded back into CMX where detailed calibration specific information (As Found/As Left) results are stored. A summary is transferred back into the CMMS or ERP and the work order is closed.
