Fair and Flexible – You Only Buy and Pay for What You Really Need

Our seven modules are complemented by twelve additional functions and many functionalities. This allows you to select the software components you need and you can focus on digitalizing your production step by step. We will be pleased to advise you!

Proactive: Planned Maintenance Measures

Reactive: Unplanned Maintenance Measures

Module 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 confirmation for release supports the careful execution of the work.

Maintenance requests are integrated in the module 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 module Maintenance with the FASTEC 4 PRO additional function Autonomous 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.
