Key Features and Benefits of TabWare Equipment Maintenance

27 Sep 2019

To maximize asset performance, equipment maintenance software focuses on equipment records as their foundation. Equipment records anchor most maintenance tasks and activities. You need to capture different types of information about your assets along with how they are used, where they are located and whether they are in service.

Quick access to equipment information directly impacts your ability to provide effective maintenance. This reduces the potential for introducing equipment failures while performing maintenance and saves time searching for the proper information. Automatic printing of equipment-specific Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) procedures along with the work order helps mitigate the risk of personal injury.

The ability to view equipment assemblies, sub-assemblies, components and parts is important to maximizing asset performance and improving technician wrench time by eliminating time spent searching for parts.

Aptean EAM TabWare Edition’s Equipment Module records information you need to manage your assets including, but not limited to:

  • Equipment nameplate data (manufacturer, model, serial number, sizing, etc.)

  • Specifications, warranty and purchasing information

  • Accounting information

  • Location and criticality information

  • Documents and video files

  • User-defined data fields

  • Hierarchy of components, assemblies, sub-assemblies and parts

  • Maintenance and cost history

  • Aptean EAM’s equipment module supports ISO 14224 standard for collection and exchange of reliability and maintenance data for equipment.
