Production personnel can enter all maintenance and repair orders regarding Versowood machines into the maintenance system. The majority of these are made as web error reports. The tasks are passed on to the service team who marks them as received and, once they are finished, as completed. The production personnel can monitor the progress of the tasks in the system, and all entries are recorded for later use.
In Nieminen’s view it is particularly important that plans for advance machine maintenance work can already be entered into the system for the upcoming years. With the listings provided by the system, all maintenance work operations can be ordered well on time.
In addition to maintenance procedures, the system is used to keep record of, for example, instructions related to the machines, documents regarding maintenance work, machine condition assessments and bearing vibration measurement reports.
“The system has enabled us to detect emerging errors, which could have disrupted the operation of a saw line for one or two shifts. The machine-specific error history makes it possible to target machine investments in a well-founded manner,” says Nieminen.
