Equipment Calibration Software For Manufacturing Industries
Equipment (CMMS / TPM) Calibration
When production or testing equipment plays a role in your final product, it is critical to keep that equipment calibrated against a dependably-known and unvarying measure.
With repeated use, all equipment degrades with respect to its accuracy and precision, and getting the timing right for maintenance and calibration activities makes a huge difference in avoiding non-conformances as well as managing resources and reducing costs.
Send Customers Quality Products!
Title 21 of the FDA’s Code of Federal Regulations defines the calibration requirements for equipment. Manufacturers have to inspect, measure, and test equipment to ensure that it is suitable for its intended use and that it is capable of providing valid results.
Total Lean Management (TLM) Software helps you ensure the final product being shipped to your customers is going to meet their expectations, as well as lower the costs required to produce error free products.
Equipment(CMMS / TPM) Calibration
Dual Technology, Upstream/Downstream Digital Landscape.
Total Lean Management (TLM) Software provides a dual technology, upstream/downstream digital landscape to both easily create and find needed records, AND connect records that are a result of work flows, such as a equipment calibration schedules, maintenance events, and which equipment was used for a particular lot or serial numbered item.
- Quickly Import existing records from Spreadsheet imports.
- Add Equipment Records.
- Duplicate existing records for quick data entry.
- Define calibration, maintenance, or Inspection schedules.
- Print barcodes to label equipment. (Code 3 of 9 formats).

The Equipment Calibration and Maintenance Software Module in TLM provide multiple methods of defining equipment event scheduling. These include:
- After closing the record based on complete date.
- After closing the record based on due date.
- Automatically scheduled by the server based on complete date.
- Automatically scheduled by the server based on due date.
All equipment events are rolled up to the TLM Dashboard.
TLM provided Email notifications ahead of calibration due dates.
The TLM alert system gives warnings at log-in of equipment events that are due.
Send equipment events to the Web App Group Calendar.
Integrated with the Maintenance Work Order module.

- Identify events for predictive maintenance tracking.
- Eliminate unplanned downtime.
- Reduce work order backlog.
- Improve Efficiency.
- Link to approved suppliers.
- Continuously monitor and trend equipment data and move toward a predictive maintenance strategy.
It also serves to create the foundation of your company’s digital landscape which saves you as much as possible from purchasing disconnected stand alone software, and provides the technical support for integrating other information systems when necessary.
All TLM software modules are rolled up to a user specific dashboard and summaries of each user's dashboard can be automatically emailed to ensure QMS activities are scheduled and prioritized accordingly.
In addition, the TLM dashboard helps users navigate to where tasks are performed, making it easy for new users to adopt the software without having to pay for extra training before being able to put TLM software to work for your company.
Eliminate unplanned downtime: When it comes to manufacturing, time is money. When equipment downtime has stopped production, all the costs associated with salary, utilities, rent, etc are all accumulating without any resulting product being produced. These costs do nothing but take a big bite out of the bottom line of this year's profits.
Reduce backlog: The efficiencies of using the Equipment Calibration and Maintenance Module in TLM allows quicker assignments, and tracking maintenance activities lets you schedule work at an optimal frequency, thus reducing both the waste of too frequent maintenance as well as the waste of inadequate maintenance due to downtime or worse, all the costs associated with processing non-conforming material events, whether from in-process activities, or from customer complaints.
Managing Risk: Using the ability to consolidate and report on maintenance and downtime data allows your company to move towards a more predictive maintenance schedule that is based on data driven risk analysis.
Of all the factors that drive human behavior, whether positive or negative, none are as universal as the need to evolve, whether we are conscious of it or not.
Your management team can create impressive organizational growth by harnessing this basic element of the human experience and the TLM audit module is one of the key tools for their success in this effort.
By organizing key aspects of how work is done, to include internal procedures and how employee job descriptions and responsibilities are defined, managers can use internal audits as the landscape for employees to demonstrate and get rewarded for their participation in finding opportunities for improvement.
TLM Audit Software ensures these efforts are well organized, linked to all other aspects of the QMS that might be related, and assigned to ensure employees who rise to the occasion can be recognized accordingly.
Historically the decision to implement ISO was driven by the consequences of NOT being ISO certified when competitors were using ISO certification to win new business from customers who needed confidence in their supplier’s ability to consistently meet requirements.
This resulted in a lot of paper based systems set up by various “consultants” that advocated vague procedures that could technically meet the requirements of the ISO standard, but in reality did very little to improve quality or any other aspect of the business.
Times have changed, and the introduction of QMS software allowed organizations to take a different approach to their quality system and instead of wasting tons of time and money for little benefit, they are using their QMS to improve all aspects of the business.
At least the companies who could afford the high cost of most QMS software.
The whole point of ISO based quality standards is to address the minimum risks across every aspect of the business that could have consequences to customer satisfaction. Unfortunately, by calling them “quality” standards, a misperception developed over the years that caused managers to think of quality as something the “quality department” was responsible for.
Total Lean Management (TLM) Software corrects this misperception by acting as an integrated management tool not only for compliance, but as the framework for how a company evolves. Audit management software can be a vital component of this evolution, provided it is integrated with all the other aspects of the business to make auditing easier, faster, and more insightful.
There is Only One Type of Quality Management System
Over the last 20 years TLM has discovered a very basic truth when it comes to information management systems such as your eQMS, no two companies have the exact same needs.
In fact, the two biggest risks in the software selection process is either selecting software that is not flexible enough to manage information that is unique, and important to your workflow, thus forcing work arounds, or other concessions that effectively add waste to your business.
The other mistake is getting stuck with comprehensive, but inflexible systems due to their web based cloud hosting design, which forces a one size fits all approach to meeting customer needs.
And while one size might fit some, it might not fit all your needs when in the long run your understanding of those needs evolves and improves.
Total Lean Management Software, by definition, recognizes this fact, and addresses it through a dual technology, upstream / downstream user landscape approach to meeting the needs of both your upstream and downstream user types. This is combined with our tiered approach to addressing newly discovered customer needs, making sure the software works in alignment with your business systems the day after your purchase, and for all the years ahead.
These measures include:
Allows you to adapt the software to your company’s terminology.
Allows you to choose which features are applied to your process.
Incorporating employee feedback into the continuous improvement cycle creates a synergistic effect on moral, engagement, and productivity.
This capability provides insurance that your system will never leave you stuck after discovering unknown needs after implementation.
By implementing and combining modules in way that might be unique to your business or work flows.
Evolution is a team effort, and the whole team behind TLM enjoys helping companies comply with regulations, manage risk, continuously improve, and maintain a steady growth rate.
This unique TLM feature allows you to link individual screens in TLM to your own controlled procedures or work instructions for that area of the software (if needed).
