Calibration Management: A Simple Approach to Equipment Management

To produce and deliver consistent quality products, every industry depends on measuring devices and instruments. These machines, tools, and devices can become out of tolerance if they are not regularly calibrated. This could lead to costly recalls or possible regulatory fines. It can be difficult to ensure that equipment is being used for intended purposes is done routinely. You will need to create a system that accurately calibrates all maintenance activities.

Qualityze Calibration Management helps organizations manage their most important assets. It streamlines calibration programs and complies with regulatory requirements. It integrates seamlessly with your existing quality procedures.

You can standardize your processes with Qualityze Calibration Management Software

  • Create Criteria Library
  • Create Asset Library
  • Setup Calibration Schedule
  • Define asset specific calibration criteria
  • Perform an emergency (or scheduled) calibration
  • Print the Calibration Certificate

Why is calibration management important?

Calibrating equipment’s main purpose is to verify its accuracy by comparing tool measurements with standard values. This ensures accuracy in equipment readings and consistent quality products. Regular calibration allows you to:

  • Ensure equipment accuracy
  • Respect the Standard Values
  • Control inconsistent product and service quality
  • Maintain your assets for longer time
  • Reduce downtime and minimize wastage

Calibration Management Overview

Calibration Initiation

Calibration management is an important part of asset management. Calibration is essential to ensure instruments, equipment, or devices perform and measure accurately. Different equipment can be calibrated to the same tolerances. It can be difficult to calibrate large quantities of equipment. It is much easier to use Qualityze Calibration Tracking Software. It helps to ensure equipment precision by organizing and executing calibration procedures in accordance with standard values. Qualityze Calibration Management makes it easy to work efficiently and effectively.

  • Create Criteria Library
  • Create Asset Library
  • Configure Calibration Schedules
  • Define the Calibration Criteria
  • Use Calibration Certificates
  • Create and manage Asset ID
  • Make sure Equipment is precise
  • Perform single-site and multi-site calibrations

Create Criteria Library

A criteria library must be developed in order to later define calibration criteria for each asset. There are two types of criteria: Attributes and variables.

  • Attributes

To ensure accurate and productive inspection of equipment, define variables according to the requirements. This allows you to be more precise to determine the asset’s exactness.

  • Variables

Define the attributes for each type of equipment or instrument used in manufacturing goods. The Criteria Name, Measurement Values, and Tolerance (+). can be listed.

Create Asset Library

A profile can be created for every asset by entering details such as Asset ID, Type, Status and Location, Ownered By, Custodian or Last Calibration Date, Calibration Performed by, and many more.

Qualityze also allows you to specify the details that you want in your asset profile. This is the first-level documentation that you need to create calibration schedules for critical assets, e.g. equipment and instruments.

Qualityze Calibration Management allows you to modify/add the form fields according to your business needs.

Schedule for Calibration Setup

The configurable interface in the Qualityze Calibration Management Solution lets us set calibration schedules for different assets ahead of time to avoid catastrophic events caused by missed or delayed calibrations. The calibration activity can be scheduled for Validation, Calibration and Certification types. The calibration schedules can be assigned to an internal team member, a vendor, or both.

A calibration schedule can be established in advance to ensure a steady flow of calibration activities. This ensures that the equipment used within an organization is accurately measured.
