One of the easiest ways to manage calibrated assets is by using an aviation asset tracking software. The only problem is that many systems only allow managers and technicians to track locations – but provide little else. Each piece of equipment has associated documents for operation, compliance, and internal maintenance. Anytime Assets allows users to upload attachments to any tool record.
Hangars are full of specialized tools and equipment, many that are used by only a select group of technicians or quality personnel. When searching for an unfamiliar tool, photos make locating and identifying equipment an easier process. Images can be attached to tool records before shipping to verify the condition of the instrument before arrival at the next location. Damage and repairs can also be documented by attaching photographs to the tool record.
Most calibrated equipment comes with an equipment or operation manual. Technicians can attach PDF or Word documents to each tooling record. Locating the correct manual via the manufacturers website can be a time consuming process, especially if you don’t have the part or model number memorized. AMT’s find that it is much more convenient to access manuals by tool record.
Complex tooling, such as cabin pressurization units, require maintenance at specific intervals. Each maintenance schedule can be attached to an equipment record for easy access. Maintenance records can be attached to ensure that maintenance was performed at each interval.
Internal maintenance and repair departments receive digital or written repair requests and typically create write-ups of sustained damage. Outside facilities may include a report of damage, instructions for scheduled inspection, and bill for repair costs. Regardless of where the document originated, it can all be attached to the tool record in Anytime Assets.
The attachment feature in Anytime Assets allows for a 360 degree view of each asset. Many other aviation asset tracking software solutions do not have this capability. If you are interested or have questions about Anytime Assets, contact e2b calibration or visit the Anytime Assets page.
