The RT mode is a simple and complete interface used by mechanics on workstations arranged in the workshop. This module allows the mechanic to choose from a list a task assigned to him or to identify the task he is going to perform. MIR-RT will then generate the work order automatically to avoid this step to the foreman. The mechanic may complete inspection sheets, identify the inventory parts to be used for his work, be notified of the current warranties and make requisitions to the storekeeper.
The automatic creation of work orders is one of the major strengths of MIR-RT, which allows your employees to spend more time in the workshop than on the computer. Your preventive maintenance schedule will be better.
Work orders are used to record parts, labor and shop supplies required to complete a task on a vehicle. With MIR-RT there is no need to enter this information after a mechanic’s work has been completed. One of the ways in which MIR improves efficiency is in providing the ability for mechanics to use their own work order documentation screen. Mechanics Mode, MIR’s easy to use mechanic’s interface, transfers data to the work order in real-time. All time, parts, notes, inspection results including brake depth and tire depth can be recorded. Mechanics Mode simplifies work order management while improving the efficiency and accuracy of work orders.
The Work Order Management module gives the manager full control over work order details such as editing, adding and removing content and documenting work performed. Depending upon the definition of an order, the costs may also be marked up for retail invoicing purposes.
The information in this module is used for obtaining detailed reports on the status of the fleet, the causes of failure, types of interventions, types of repairs, parts used and total cost of repairs. If done manually, these reports are very hard to obtain. With MIR-RT however, these detailed reports are always at your fingertips, saving you time and effort.
The inventory module includes functions specific to parts management. The automatic updates when receiving parts, the use of barcodes and cross-references, the warranty tracking and the automation of cores management give storekeepers simple and efficient tools to properly manage their inventory.
The staff will also be able to consult parts catalogs to check the purchase log and to take a look at the installation history of any inventory parts to know its use over time.
The Planning module allows the shop foreman or team leader to easily drag and drop work tasks to mechanics, teams, groups and external suppliers. It is even possible to create a global tasks list to be performed by any mechanics.
All past due preventive maintenance, correctives notes, warranties that have expired and any repairs due to an inspection will appear within the planning module, providing the manager with an overview of all work required for all units.
The tasks planned but not completed appear in a separate section and can be reallocated. If you are a maintenance manager looking to optimize the maintenance performed on a unit in the garage, the global view of work to do will help you achieve this goal.
Each unit in your fleet is indexed and every detail is grouped in an easy-to-read form: general information, personalized and government inspection sheets, preventive maintenance schedule, parts installed on the unit, active warranties, related work orders and invoices.
MIR is also very flexible, it gives you the ability to add an unlimited number of fields to provide your employees with all the information they need to perform their job effectively. Finally, the experienced manager will be able to consult in a single click, in real time, the unit’s maintenance costs detail and print the reports necessary for its decision-making.
This module offers many possibilities for billing of time spent on repair or preventive maintenance, parts used and shop supplies.
Closed invoices allow billing a work order as is, thus ensuring a total similarity between the invoice and the work order. Conversely, depending on the type of business operated, it may be worthwhile to have more flexibility with an open invoice that makes it possible to adjust the items to be invoiced. The use of quotes, which can be converted into work orders or open invoices, is another feature that you will appreciate.
