Calibration Management : A Simplified Approach to Equipment Management
Every industry relies on instruments and measurement devices to manufacture and deliver consistent quality products. If these machines, tools and devices are not calibrated regularly, they may start operating out of tolerance resulting in expensive recalls and potential regulatory fines. However, it can be a huge task to guarantee a routine process of inspection, calibrating, and testing equipment for their intended purposes. It requires you to implement an effective calibration solution to schedule, manage, and track all maintenance activity.
Qualityze Calibration Management allows organizations to manage their critical assets by streamlining calibration programs while complying with regulatory requirements. It seamlessly integrates with your existing quality processes.
With Qualityze Calibration Management Software, you can standardize the processes to:
- Create Criteria Library
- Create Asset Library
- Setup Calibration Schedule
- Define Asset Specific Calibration Criteria
- Conduct Scheduled or Unscheduled (Emergency) Calibration
- Print Calibration Certificate
Why Calibration Management is Important?
The main objective of calibrating equipment is to check its accuracy by comparing the tool measurements with the standard defined values. It ensures precision in the equipment and instruments reading to provide consistent quality products. Having a regular calibration schedule enables you to;
- Ensure equipment accuracy
- Comply with Standard Values
- Control inconsistencies in product and service quality
- Maintain your assets for longer time
- Minimize the downtime and wastage
Create Criteria Library
In the first step, a criteria library is required to be created which can be later used to define asset specific calibration criteria in the asset profile of each asset. Criteria can be of 2 types: Variables and Attributes.
Define the variables based on the standard requirements to ensure precise and productive inspection of equipment and instruments. It enables you to be more specific to measure the degree of exactness of the asset.
Define the attributes criteria for the different type of equipment and instruments used for manufacturing goods. You can state the Criteria Name, Measurement values, Tolerance (-), Tolerance (+).
Create Asset Library
You can create a profile of every asset in the system through details like Asset ID, Name, Type, Status, Location, Physical Location, Owned By, Custodian, Last Calibration Date, Calibration Performed By, and much more.
Besides, you can opt for desired details in the asset profile since Qualityze offers configurable fields and workflows. It is first-level documentation to create the calibration schedules for your critical assets i.e., equipment and instruments.
Qualityze Calibration Management is a fully configurable solution that allows you to add/modify the form fields based on your business requirements.
Setup Calibration Schedule
The configurable interface of the Qualityze Calibration Management Solution allows us to set calibration schedules for different assets in advance to avoid any catastrophic events due to delayed or missed calibrations. You can schedule the calibration activity for Validation, Calibration, and Certification type. You can assign the calibration schedules to a selected Vendor, Internal team member, or both.
Setting up a calibration schedule in advance helps maintain a consistent flow of calibration activities. It further ensures that accurately measuring equipment is used in the organization.
Define Asset Specific Calibration Criteria
Qualityze enables you to define Asset Specific Calibration Criteria wherein you can specify the standard measurements and tolerance level. You can also create and document R&R Study i.e., Repeatability & Reproducibility for each asset profile and each whose calibration criteria are defined.
Qualityze Calibration Management allows you to align assets with their specific calibration criteria, improving equipment performance’s overall traceability.
Conduct Scheduled or Unscheduled (emergency) Calibration
Use the system generated scheduled calibration alert to generate a scheduled calibration record or initiate a calibration record in ad-hoc basis for unscheduled (emergency) calibration. Using the predefined criteria at the asset level will allow you to inspect, measure and calibrate the equipment at hand. After checking the tolerance level of the equipment and instruments, you can take further actions such as create an NC for the Out of Tolerance outcome, Remove from the use, Calibrate, Repair, keep it As Received, or mark it unrepairable and other custom actions.
The closure activity will reflect the details such as Time took to Complete, Cost Incurred, Date Returned to Use, Asset Status, Calibration Result, and much more.
Print Calibration Certificate
After the successful calibration activity, you can print a calibration certificate/label to show calibration status, calibration performed to date, and due date of calibration, demonstrating a control to guarantee that only calibrated instruments are used.
Qualityze Calibration Management automatically saves the calibration certificates for regulatory inspections and audit purposes
