In the past, businesses used spreadsheets to track pieces of equipment. As companies expanded geographically, this manual process of equipment management became cumbersome and ineffective. A defect in a piece of equipment has a ripple effect on the entire company, starting with downtime, cost, and, more importantly, brand image. With the advent of technology, companies have realized the need to move from siloed, paper-based systems to a more robust, cloud-based equipment maintenance software system to monitor and maintain their equipment.

All manufacturers must adhere to regulatory requirements and international standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 10012 and set up equipment maintenance software. Pharmaceutical manufacturers must conform to FDA 21CFR211.182, which focuses on cGMP, maintaining written records of central equipment cleaning, maintenance, and uses. Similarly, FDA 21CFR211 211.68 mandates all automatic, mechanical, or electronic equipment to be routinely calibrated or checked according to a documented in-house program designed to assure proper performance.

Equipment maintenance tracking is simplified with cloud-based maintenance software. Tracking equipment maintenance is a five-step process – define, monitor, train, assign, and inspect.

  • Clearly define each process to analyze system performance data
  • Monitor operations to become aware of potential issues
  • Provide technicians and operators with proper training to identify and resolve issues
  • Create accountability within the organization by assigning responsibility
  • Conduct periodic inspections based on a strict equipment maintenance schedule

Equipment maintenance tracking is an ongoing process that needs to be carried out efficiently. To ensure no step is skipped, it is essential to create a checklist of tasks based on safety, operation, repairs, records, and instructions. Here is an equipment maintenance checklist that organizations can refer to.

  • Prepare a safety document or guide that details the activities that should or should not take place.
  • Conduct quality and maintenance tests on equipment to determine the operating conditions of each equipment
  • Maintain a document of repairs or changes proposed and resolved for future reference
  • Document and store all equipment-related procedures and guidelines at a central location for easy access
  • Read all equipment-related instructions in detail to understand the working of an equipment.
