WEBINAR: Getting the Most out of Calibration in SAP with Vesta QMC

Sign up Today and find out how you can achieve a more successful Tomorrow.

Spending Today complaining about Yesterday won’t make Tomorrow any better. Find out how you drastically cut down on waisted time in your SAP calibration process with Vesta QMC. Join our upcoming Live Webinar session on March 18th 9:00AM EST/3:00PM CET, hosted by Peter Mobert, Director, Software Products of Vesta.

Vesta QMC eliminates the repetitive steps of creating Master Inspection Characteristics and task lists required for calibration within your SAP platform. Instead, the solution introduces a new Master Data object called “Data Sheets”. Data Sheets can be assigned to single or multiple equipment in need of calibration, defining which sequence of readings are to be taken in addition to their Plausibility, Adjustment and Process limits.

Vesta QMC also allows for the capturing of which Standards were used during results recording, and the ability to audit this data through a traceability report provided with the solution.

Key Takeaways:

  • QMC streamlines the calibration process in SAP QM/PM
  • Audit log available for Standards used during results recording
  • Generate input/output requirements based on Linear calculations
  • Calibration Certificate available for each Inspection lot clearly outlining the readings and conditions during calibration
  • Guardbanding capabilities supported

WEBINAR: Streamline STO Planning & Execution with Safran & Vesta Partners

WEBINAR: Streamline STO Planning & Execution with Safran & Vesta Partners

Register today to reserve your seat for one of our upcoming Webinar Sessions, where representatives from Safran Software Solutions and Vesta Partners will demonstrate Safran Project and show you how it can provide you with a comprehensive solution supporting STO across planning, scheduling and executing processes, with bi-directional Integration between SAFRAN and SAP core modules PS and PM.

Learn how SAFRAN with SAP can add value and help mitigate the following risks:

  • Managing the Complexity – STOs are more complex than many other project based events. With very tight time constraints, it is critical that the assets are returned to service on time and able to provide the required service. Poorly executed STOs and the subsequent delays will cost the organization many millions of dollars, both in Project over run and in lost revenue.

 

  • Scope Control – A major challenge in any turnaround is scope control. Unlike capital projects, which usually have a well-defined scope established before execution starts, the scope of work for the STO is always a challenge to control and there is always a pressure for change right up to the last minute before project execution.

 

  • Keeping an eye on progress. The STO requires frequent status reporting capability that provides timely data and information to enable and make informed decisions. Timely reporting can transform the STO from reactive to proactive.

 

  • Managing across the portfolio – Organizations operate with many parallel demands on their resources. It is therefore important to have a master project plan that aggregates across all the work requests. From maintenance to capital work, handling both internal departments.
