Autonomous Maintenance (TPM) – Relief and Regulated Processes

The MES additional function Autonomous Maintenance puts the responsibility for smaller measures directly on the machine operator. The maintenance team is relieved.

The Most Important Functions at a Glance

  • Creating autonomous maintenance plans
  • Diverse trigger, e.g. according to production performance or calendar intervals
  • Providing supporting documents
  • Documenting performed activities
  • Documenting spare parts needed
  • Supplementary information and notice of defects
  • Process management and suggestion scheme for further optimization

Benefits for Your Corporate Success

  • Higher identification of the machine operator by delegation of responsibility
  • Machine operator handles minor downtimes quickly
  • Significant time and cost savings
  • Relief of the maintenance staff
  • Uniform process management as well as regulated processes concerning defect notifications and maintenance requests

Additional Function Autonomous Maintenance: In Detail

Within the scope of autonomous maintenance, minor measures such as cleaning, oiling, or other activities on the machine are transferred directly to the machine operator. Through this delegation of responsibility you save time and costs. Your production process gets much faster due to the fact that maintenance staff is relieved. You can quickly configure autonomous maintenance, including ensuring continuous documentation.

Also make use of the FASTEC 4 PRO additional function Document Display and link a wide variety of documents and information as required. These are made available to your machine operators at the production terminal. A reading conformation for release supports the careful execution of the work.

A suggestion scheme is integrated in the additional function Autonomous Maintenance. Your machine operators have the opportunity to make suggestions for improvement and leave a comment in the system at all times so that you can continuously improve your machine park. This provides you and your TPM manager with a valid basis for checking the implementation of the proposed measure.

Combine the additional function Autonomous Maintenance with the FASTEC 4 PRO module Maintenance. Let us actively support you in carrying out reactive maintenance measures and in controlling preventive and autonomous maintenance measures. This way you significantly reduce defects and failures. While the additional function Autonomous Maintenance notifies the production employee in case of minor maintenance or cleaning measures, you can create concrete maintenance and inspection orders in Planned Maintenance, e.g. at time or condition-based intervals.
