Globally we are at the peak of being industrious. Our production houses, assembly floors and quality assurance has all been automated and are powered completely by machines in today’s day and age. We cannot deny the importance of machining services in our evolution. Machines of all sorts have become an engine that is driving the future of humans. Therefore, machining services today are so modernized, now the concept of onsite and in-situ machining services is at play.
Basically, on-site machining service is the mobile-based machine building process. Whereas, in-situ machining services refers to the machine repair services that demand the service to be conducted in a real-time situation. This type of service is conducted when the machining specialists are given all the needed tools on the real-time site or situation and the service is conducted in real-time. In-situ machining services are considered to be the most economical, fast and effective modern machining services in the world.
Quality Millwright has identified below the best practices of in-situ services which we provide to our industrial fabrication and machining clients.
Reach The Site On Time
Quality Millwright believes that the first thing to do while providing in-situ services is to reach the site of the machine as soon as possible. This requires impeccable coordination and logistic solutions since time is the most valuable resource if a machine stops working.
After reaching the site, machining professionals must be experienced enough to analyze the fault in its entirety. Furthermore, they must be able to check and analyze the machine if there is any secondary faults or not. If there are any minor signs that a secondary fault might be present or expected it should be addressed with the initial fault as well.
Prepare Solution List
Once the fault analysis is conducted, the machining professional must be able to list down the proposed solutions. These solutions must be catered in the cost and benefits analysis to shortlist the best solutions to fix the fault(s) with the machine.
Recommend Best Approach
After having total situational analysis and shortlisting the best solutions, they must be recommended to the client and get the formal go-ahead on their execution. This execution cannot be based on ad-hoc practices. It must be done in the form of standard processes so that all the members of the in-situ team are synergized in the process.
Create An Execution Plan
The execution plan must be based on identified best practices, which are considered as the standard operational procedures (SOP). These SOPs make sure that the solution process is not compromised at any level and retains a considerable level of efficiency throughout.
Allocate And Monitor Resources
In-situ machining services are normally conducted by a team that specializes in the real-time machining services being focused on time and efficient use of available resources. This team is led by the project lead who has to allocate and monitor the resources both human and machine-based, service tools and other required elements to make sure the service is conducted on time and efficiently.
Maintain Resource Management
Depending on the fault and the size of the machine, the in-situ project lead has to maintain the resource demand and management. Therefore, they must be able to analyze and create the demand for the tools, manpower and the machines needed to fix the fault as soon as possible with quality.
Quality Assurance Of Service
The solution execution is done in a very short time. Therefore, every step taken must be error-free and effective. This can be done when proper quality checks are maintained and implemented in the solution strategy.
Testing And Delivery
After the fault is fixed, the project lead must test run the machine. In-situ machining services demand that the solution strategy is thoroughly tested so that the same issue does not happen again. After the project lead is satisfied with the fix, only then will the client will be delivered to the machine and provide approval after review.
Client Feedback And After-Sale Service
Once the in-situ team goes back, they always get feedback from the client about the machine performance. This way they can further enhance their services if a similar fault arises in similar machines.
