By recording a failure, the MP allows you to document a large amount of information regarding the failure, which will help you over time to analyze the most recurring failures and their root causes.
|Registration and monitoring of non-routine work by event (Failures)||✔||✔|
|Maintenance requests can be reported using the desktop application from a personal computer or using the requests app for mobile devices.
The maintenance requests that are reported go directly to the maintenance personnel who may choose to generate the corresponding work order or discard said request.
On the other hand, people who make a request will be able to check the status of their request, that is, if their request has already been read, scheduled date to carry out the work, if the work has already been done, etc.
|Report maintenance requests||-||✔|
|If at the time of recording a measurement (eg temperature, amperage, vibration, wear, etc.) it is outside or close to limits, the MP issues an alert, allowing you to automatically generate a maintenance request for that the equipment be taken care of.||Automatic generation of maintenance requests when any measurement of the equipment is out or close to limits||✔||✔|
|When registering a non-routine work (eg failures), the MP allows you to document images of how the equipment or location was before carrying out the work.
Once the work is done, you can document with images how the equipment or location was after the work was done.
|Documentation with pictures of how the equipment or location was before and after the repair||✔||✔|
|When reporting that a fault has been repaired, the MP allows documenting the type of fault and its root cause. This information will later allow you to generate interesting graphs to analyze the types of equipment that present the most failures, their types of failure and the root causes of the failures. All this for the analysis aimed at reducing failures starting from the most recurrent ones.
For ease, MP version 10 includes a preloaded catalog of equipment types, failure types, and root causes of failure.
|Documentation of the type of failure and root cause||✔||✔|
|The MP allows you to document all the information you need to make any maintenance work you carry out perfectly well documented.||Documentation of the time invested, start time, procedure performed, responsible, impact of the damage, observations, security requirements, etc.||✔||✔|

If the request is reported from the desktop application, you can optionally send a notification to the people involved via email.
|Share your maintenance requests via whatsapp, facebook, text message, e-mail, etc.||✔|
|When you carry out a corrective work for example, many times the repair carried out implies a reprogramming of various routine maintenance works that are carried out as a result of the intervention of the equipment to repair the fault.
The MP considers this situation and allows you to solve it directly as part of the process when you report that the work has already been done, rescheduling the corresponding planned maintenance work.
|Tool to report and reschedule routine maintenance work as a result of having carried out a corrective work.||✔||✔|
|Work orders (WOs)|
|An important improvement in MP version 10 can be found in the work order generation process, which is now much more versatile, intuitive and easy, with different routes or paths from which you can generate your work orders.||Generation of work orders||✔||✔|
|To each work order that the user generates, the MP assigns a consecutive folio number for its control. In this new completely redesigned module you will have full control of the work orders generated.
Once your work orders have been generated, in this module you will be able to consult, print, update the work carried out and close your completed work orders.
In addition, you can assign the person in charge and register the spare parts, consumables and external services that you have used.
|Work order management and tracking||✔||✔|
|Check your work orders and update the activities carried out
- Scan the QR code of the equipment to check the maintenance activities pending.

Requires the use of MySQL, SQL Server, MariaDB databases or the MPcloud service.
|Check your work orders and update the activities carried out from the MPmobile App||✔||✔|
|In the Workforce module we can register a workforce catalog where the name and specialty of all maintenance personnel are registered, including those responsible.
When we assign a manager to one or more work orders, the MP totals the estimated time to perform the jobs contained in each work order and accumulates it to the assigned manager. The above allows to know graphically the distribution of the duration of the work orders assigned to the personnel, helping the maintenance administrator to balance the workloads. In the same way, we will be able to know the number of open WOs assigned to each of them at the time of assigning the jobs.
|Workload balancing when generating work orders||-||✔|
|When generating a work order for a parent equipment, the MP also considers the activities that must be carried out on the child equipments to be included in the WO together with their parent equipment.||Grouping of child equipments in the same work order as their parent equipment||✔||✔|
|The MP allows you to manually advance or postpone the upcoming maintenance dates calculated by the system. When this happens, it is recorded in the system that the user manually modified the scheduled date and leaves the possibility that the person who has advanced or postponed it, document the reason why he did it, such as failure to release the equipment due to production, lack of spare parts, etc.||Tool to advance or postpone scheduled activities||✔||✔|
|Sometimes it is practical to be able to view activities for the next period and in the opinion of the maintenance administrator, take advantage of it to include them in the WO that is being generated; all with the purpose of extending the availability of the equipment and avoiding a new intervention in a short term. (Optional at the discretion of the maintenance administrator)||Option to view and include upcoming activities for the next period in the work order||✔||✔|
|The versatility of the MP allows optionally to include several equipments or locations in the same work order.||Option to include multiple equipments in the same work order||✔||✔|
|MP version 10 includes the possibility of updating works carried out outside the WO period, an option that previous versions did not contemplate.||Option to update works done outside the period||✔||✔|
|In configuration options, the user defines the content they want to present in their work orders. In version 10 the format of the printed work order was redesigned, resulting in a more concentrated work order with the consequent reduction of paper.||User configurable printed work order||✔||✔|
|When printing a copy of an work order, the MP stamps a watermark indicating that it is a copy. This is important to avoid the possibility of jobs being duplicated due to lack of control over WO copies.||Control of copies of printed work orders||✔||✔|
|Search by content in the list of work orders, whether you want to find a equipment, an activity, a part of a equipment, a classification, priority, etc.||Advanced search tool in the work orders list||✔||✔|
|Print the forms for recording the hours of labor employed in each job and resources used.||Printing of formats attached to the work orders||✔||✔|

|Completely redesigned interface||✔||✔|
|The Inventory of Spare Parts and Consumables allows you to efficiently control the stock of materials and spare parts, entry and exit movements, kardex, inventory valuation by different methods, calculating the supply, suppliers, purchases, etc .; and it is in this program where the Catalog of Spare Parts and Consumables is captured.||Catalog of spare parts and consumables||✔||✔|
|The option of managing several warehouses (Multi-warehouses) is very useful for those companies that have products located in more than one warehouse.
When the Multi-warehouses option is activated, the program allows you to make transfers between warehouses, check the stock of a product in each of the warehouses, value inventory by warehouse and in a consolidated way.
|The entry and exit of products to the warehouse is done through foliated documents.
Every time a new entry or exit document is registered, the program adds a consecutive folio number to said document that can be tracked and consulted at any time.
|Movements of inputs and outputs of spare parts, transfers between warehouses, adjustment for physical inventory, etc.||✔||✔|

|The MP allows calculating the rotation of spare parts and consumables based on the movements out of the warehouse in a period of time determined by the user.
Now, based on the calculated daily turnover, the program also allows to automatically calculate the minimum necessary, optimal and maximum stocks to cover the requirements of spare parts and consumables for the number of days determined by the user.
|Automatic calculation of rotation and minimum, optimum and maximum levels||✔||✔|
|From the MP it is possible to generate the warehouse vouchers with the spare parts and consumables that will be used for the execution of the work orders. Warehouse vouchers can be generated manually or automatically.
When resources are associated with routine maintenance activities, vouchers can be generated automatically.
Hence one of the advantages of having resources associated with routine activities. When maintenance personnel go to the warehouse to request the materials contained in the voucher, it is sufficient to mention the voucher's folio number to the warehouseman.
In the Inventory of Parts and Consumables program, the storekeeper will find the vouchers generated in the MP, so that by simply selecting the folio number of the voucher, the storekeeper can automatically load the materials contained in the voucher and generate the corresponding outbound movement , without the need to recapture the information.
|The program allows you to value the Inventory by any of the following methods:
3. MONETARY OR REPLACEMENT PRICE
4. WEIGHTED AVERAGE
When the Multi-warehouses option is activated, it is possible to calculate the value of each of the warehouses independently or on a consolidated basis.
|Inventory valuation by different methods (Average cost, LIFO and FIFO)||✔||✔|
|The MP calculates the spare parts to be used in the following weeks, months or years considering the resources assigned to maintenance activities and the dates scheduled to be carried out.
In the resource flow you will be able to check the number of spare parts needed and obtain a budget based on the scheduled maintenance activities.
|A graphical indicator shows you the months of coverage you have for each product. The coverage calculation is made based on your stock and the rotation or flow of resources of the spare parts assigned to maintenance activities.
In this way, you will have the coverage calculation accurately depending on your needs.
|Graphic indicator of coverage||✔||✔|
|Printing of labels in barcode format to label all products upon entering the warehouse||✔|
|The spare parts and consumables warehouse is controlled independently of maintenance. The storekeeper in charge of the warehouse will not have to enter the MP to access the Inventory. Notwithstanding the foregoing, maintenance personnel need to consult the MP for stocks, costs, equivalent brands, product specifications, etc. for organizing your work.
From the MP, the user can link to the Inventory database to check stocks and costs of the different spare parts and consumables, automatically generate material exit vouchers and determine the spare parts and consumables necessary to carry out the different activities.
Now, if you wish to use another inventory system external to the MP to manage your spare parts, you can link it to the MP to consult the spare parts and stocks in said external system from the MP.
|MP link with the Spare Parts Inventory included or with an external inventory system||✔||✔|
|It manages the permissions of the database users so that they can only access the information of the warehouse or warehouses that correspond to them.||Users management by warehouse||✔||✔|
|An important concept that differentiates a spare parts warehouse and a store from a store, for example, is that in the latter each product must be handled as different products. However, in a spare parts warehouse, equivalent products can be handled as if they were the same product.
The MP Inventory allows the management of brands and equivalent barcodes for the same product.
|Management of equivalent brands for the same product||✔||✔|
|The program alerts you to all those products out of stock or with stocks below the minimum level.||Stock alert below minimum level||✔||✔|
|The MP alerts you to the resources that need to be supplied. Alerts can be configured by the user so that you always keep your stocks at the appropriate levels for your warehouse.||Supply alerts||✔||✔|
|In the inventory of spare parts, the warehouseman will be able to know at any time the list and quantities of spare parts to be supplied according to the warehouse vouchers generated by the maintenance personnel. When stocks are insufficient to meet the requirements, the MP will issue an alert.||Alert of stocks lower than maintenance requirements||✔||✔|
|The MP allows you to consult in a mesh all the relevant information of different warehouses, allowing you to consult between warehouses the stock of spare parts, costs, movements, locations, etc.||Warehouse comparison||✔||✔|
|Option to handle different presentations for the same spare part or material||✔||✔|
|Unlike with other CMMS, in the MP you are not limited to short and abbreviated descriptions of the parts. Its functionality allows you to efficiently handle large listings and easily locate a part with the advanced filter tools, even without the need to type a product code that is often difficult or uncomfortable to remember.
In addition, there is a memo field that allows you to document the technical specifications of your spare parts.
|Long spare parts descriptions of up to 120 characters||✔||✔|
|The SPARE PARTS INVENTORY allows you to supplement the information of the spare parts with images, attachments and specifications.||Spare Parts Documentation with Images, Attachments and Specifications||✔||✔|
|The operation of the Spare Parts Inventory is optimized by using a barcode reader that will help you streamline the operations of entry and exit of products to the warehouse.
In the program, the barcode reader is used to enter the part number of a product without the need to type it manually.
One of the great advantages of the Spare Parts Inventory program is that the user has the option of managing several barcodes related to the same product.
The foregoing is very useful to indicate, for example, that the barcode of an oil in a liter presentation and a barcode of the same oil in a gallon presentation both correspond to the same product. Or, to reference equivalent products from different manufacturers with the same product.
|Currency refers to the monetary units that suppliers use to sell their products. Through a combo, the user can select any of the currencies or add new currencies to the auxiliary currency catalog. The user can also keep the exchange rate for each currency updated.
When generating a requisition, it is issued with the default currency for the supplier. When entering the merchandise to the warehouse, the program converts the amounts to national currency taking the corresponding exchange rate.
|Handling products with different currencies||✔||✔|
|The Spare Parts Inventory allows you to import information from other databases, thus avoiding the need to recapture information that is already captured in some other file.
The import utility allows you to import information from an Excel file, Dbase, Access, etc. You can also import the information directly from a previous version of the Inventory or the MP program.
|Import data from other sources to Inventory||✔|
|It facilitates the gathering of physical inventories and, where appropriate, makes the necessary adjustment movements that result from differences between the physical inventory and the registered inventories.||Online or offline physical inventory tool||✔||✔|
|It allows to carry out the physical inventory of the warehouse in different sections so that it can continue supplying the necessary resources to carry out maintenance activities.||Tool to carry out the physical inventory by sections||✔||✔|
|Considering that different PM databases can be linked to the same warehouse, the PM concentrates all the resources that you will need to carry out maintenance activities for all linked databases. This allows to know the needs that the warehouse will have in a period of one year considering all the databases and assigned spare parts.||Resource flow query by warehouse||✔||✔|
|External labor, suppliers and services|
|In the MP, the user captures the Workforce Catalog in which the names and specialties of the personnel involved in maintenance work are registered. The information in this catalog allows the designation of managers for work orders.||Catalog of labor||✔||✔|
|The MP includes a catalog of equipment and service providers. The equipments that register in the MP will be able to relate to their respective provider. The user will be able to consult the provider's information online, such as contacts, telephones, etc. They can also create a catalog of the services that each provider offers and document the consumption of services in the MP.||Catalog of external providers and services||✔||✔|
|In MP version 10, labor costs are now recorded on a monthly basis, based on the data provided by the accounting department. Stop managing the hourly cost per employee leading to a much more realistic result when presenting maintenance costs, since the real cost is a data that emerges from the accounting taking into account salary, fees, overtime, benefits, etc..||Labor cost record||✔||✔|
|The man-hours invested by each worker in the different work orders are recorded in the labor log, making this information available for consultation at all times.||Work labor log||✔||✔|
|Warehouse vouchers, consumptions and guarantees|
|Generate warehouse vouchers automatically or manually in the MP and download them at the time of generating the outbound movement from the spare parts inventory, streamlining the material delivery process in the warehouse.||Warehouse vouchers||✔||✔|
|The MP allows documenting the consumption of spare parts, consumables and external services used during the execution of maintenance work. This will allow us to make inquiries about the resources used in each piece of equipment and analyze maintenance costs.

|The Professional MP and the Business MP include a program called Tool Control.
This program allows you to control receipts and returns of all tools delivered to workers. The program allows, among other things, to consult online who has or where each of the tools is located.
Before proceeding to carry out maintenance work, from the MP the user will be able to check the availability or stocks in the warehouse of the tools that will be used to carry out the tasks entrusted.
|By movements of entry or exit to the warehouse should be understood those movements that modify the asset or value of the tool warehouse. As an example, we can mention the entry into the magazine of a new tool or the exit movements due to removal of a specific tool from the magazine. The removal of a tool temporarily when it is handed over to an employee should not be considered as a move out of the warehouse.
When loaning or delivering a tool to an employee, it remains part of the asset of the tool store. In this case the tool simply changes its location, but the value of the tool magazine is not changed. The movements of entry and exit to the tool magazine are controlled by means of foliated documents. The tools that entered or left the warehouse are recorded in these documents.
When the user generates a new input or output document, the program assigns a consecutive folio number to the document.
|Movements of inputs and outputs to the tool magazine||✔||✔|
|The receipt consists of the delivery of one or more tools to an employee or worker for the performance of their work, either for a defined time or for an indeterminate period. The tool that is delivered as safekeeping to an employee does not cease to be part of the asset of the tool store.
Every time the storekeeper delivers a tool to an employee or worker, he can generate a receipt document to record the tools that were delivered to him in the program. The program will control the tools that each person has in their possession, and as the tools are returned, the program will be in charge of keeping that control updated.
The Tool Control program allows you to instantly consult the location of a tool, as well as consult the list of tools that a person keeps in their possession.
|Movements of loan and return of tools||✔||✔|
