Staying on top of maintenance for a large facility, especially one with plenty of heavy equipment and large machinery, can be a challenging task. The best maintenance managers are well organized and have attention to detail, especially when it comes to their spare parts inventory management. Even the best-oiled machine can use some assistance, however – and that’s where GP MaTe comes in.
More Than a Sophisticated Parts Inventory Management Software
Using sophisticated technology to streamline parts management and inventory can drastically reduce the amount of time your maintenance team spends on finding the parts they need and ensuring that there’s plenty on hand for routine fixes and emergencies. Even the best-organized storeroom can use some help. When you incorporate GP MaTe from MATE PCS into your parts inventory management system, you’ll be able to find what you need more quickly, set par levels and order automatically, and even create “pull sheets” for certain jobs based on the information you give.
GP MaTe works by assigning each item in your inventory a unique designation. It can be the barcode, item number, or any number you choose. With the powerful search capabilities in the system, our users typically look up the equipment by descriptions or location information as well as the ID. You can further organize your inventory by adding the line items to parts lists for each of your major pieces of equipment. This information greatly helps the maintenance staff identify which parts are needed for a task, whether these parts are available, and reduces the chance of manually ordering parts when they are already stocked.
GP MaTe is more than a sophisticated parts inventory management software. You can also upload associated documents with different items, such as operating manuals or CAD drawings, and even short instructional videos. Your company’s Best Practices documents can also be loaded into GP MaTe, thereby serving as a reminder of your lock-out, tag-out requirements, safety protocols, and other valuable information not provided by the manufacturer. When your team pulls a work order, then the documents associated with the machine and the parts will automatically be pulled, too. GP MaTe has helped hundreds of factories, businesses, and government facilities streamline their maintenance systems. Give us a call to discuss how we can help you, too!
