FOR engineers who prefer to use the familiarity of MS Project for their scheduling, Maintenance Experts now has an MS Project interface for its MEX computerised maintenance management system.
Suitable for complex scheduling such as shutdown periods and rebuilds, the ease of use of Project also makes it ideal for the planning of preventative maintenance schedules.
The MEX system is an Access-based product which now has the capability to link directly with MS Project, allowing users to import their maintenance work orders into either a Project Gantt Chart or Calendar.
Here, data can be viewed, manipulated and modified before being updated in the MEX system and allowing the maintenance of accurate and efficient forecasts for resources and components.
The ability of MEX to draw on the easy-to-use scheduling functionality of MS Project further enhances this comprehensive maintenance management system and enables an advanced level of control for project work as well as daily maintenance requirements.
MEX is a dedicated maintenance management software system produced by Australian-owned company Maintenance Experts. Embraced by companies since 1995 the system is now operated by more than 2300 users throughout Australasia.
