Comprehensive Checklists and Mobile Solutions from the UK No 1 Maintenance System – Pirana CMMS from Shire Systems

The new version of Pirana allows the creation of multi-subject work orders. You can now produce a single work order that covers multiple assets. This approach is commonly referred to as a ‘checklist’ work order and it is very useful if you have a fixed set of assets that you always deal with at the same time e.g. you could set up a list for a walk-around to check the condition of fire doors. The system gives you two ways to create a multi-subject (checklist) work order. The first way is to create a user-defined list of work subjects (assets) and the other is to automatically generate a list based on shared Asset Category and Location. Another major benefit of the newly improved Pirana is the redesign of how Pirana carries out condition monitoring. Condition checks, instructions and or readings can be setup against the Task and pulled directly onto work orders for scheduled maintenance.
