Bluestreak | iMaintain™ (equipment and employee training maintenance) is a key component of the integrated Bluestreak™ Quality Management System (QMS).
Bluestreak | iMaintain™ is a key component of the Bluestreak™ Quality Management System (QMS), and is integrated with other Bluestreak™ modules. It is designed for any business that needs a better way to manage, plan and schedule the maintenance and use of production equipment, other company assets, and even the building/grounds. iMaintain™ is an effective preventive maintenance (PM) tool, allowing businesses to instantly visualize resourcing issues, and schedule regular PM tasks or one-off Maintenance Orders. Now, any employee has the ability to issue a maintenance order anytime they see an issue or potential problem.
Additionally, Bluestreak | iMaintain™ tracks up/downtime, labor hours, and repair costs. And like all of the Bluestreak™ modules, iMaintain™ is 100% browser-based; this means there is no software to install and it can run on nearly any device. — tablet or smartphone, PC or Mac.
Employee Training Maintenance: Now, you can use the iMaintain maintenance model to facilitate training programs and document employee training using maintenance orders (“MO”). When the maintenance Type “Training” is selected, the “Asset” data fields will be removed from the screen and replaced with“Trainee” and “Trainer” data fields. Using these functions along with your appropriate Training Processes, will allow you to document all employee training, which can be linked to User Specifications to qualify the employee to perform certain tasks as well as specific Operations during Work Order processing.
