GBA Equipment Master is designed to allow you to easily track
maintenance activities, requirements, and costs for any piece of equipment and
its components. For tracking purposes, the application keys off of equipment
readings (hour meter, odometer, or user-defined) and date. These key fields then
dictate scheduling of work orders and preventative maintenance, warranty status,
depreciation and replacement costs.
The GBA Equipment Master program is modular, with individual modules organizing information that includes Basic Equipment Information (name plate data, purchase and warranty information, etc.), Work Orders (Current, Preventative Maintenance, Emergency, Archived), Preventative Maintenance Tasks (Upcoming, Archived), Readings (Most Recent, Archived), Parts and Fluids.
The program is designed to alert managers of occurrence of several key events, including when a piece of equipment is due for maintenance; when the estimated lifespan of a piece of equipment has ended, and replacement should be considered; and when a current work order needs to be completed. In addition, your system may have equipment that is dependent on another piece of equipment. If that equipment has a status of inoperable, all the dependent pieces of equipment will be listed as inoperable as well. This allows you to perform preventative maintenance on your equipment without taking it out of service.
For complete budgeting and cost analysis purposes, the program tracks costs of labor used to complete work orders, and use of parts and fluids associated with a piece of equipment. These parts and fluids can be linked to the GBA Parts Inventory program, which can track the purchase, transactions, and quantities of the stock inventory of these items.
