Calibration Management Software

By: Leaftech

Each day, thousands of businesses all over the world rely on sensitive instrumentation to ensure the quality, integrity, and safety of their products. Temperature gauges in laboratories, air pressure meters in the aerospace field, and carbonation mixers in the food and beverage industry are all areas where highly technical calibration systems are needed in order to keep the business running smoothly. These highly sensitive instruments must be monitored on a regular basis to maintain high levels of operability, and the process can become a complicated one in which it may be hard to pinpoint a problem when one arises.

One answer is calibration management software. This software monitors instruments within your place of work and provides accurate readings on functionality, and alerts when systems are found to be out of sync. The key with this type of software is finding a system which effectively streamlines the whole process while at the same time minimizing interpretive difficulties. Here are some qualities to look for in high end calibration management software.

Elimination of the need for paper. Paper used to be the backbone of any place of business or research, with constant printing needed. The waste and the expense of the tons of paper used are always a chief consideration for any industry, as is the possibility of important documents getting lost in the shuffle. Calibration management software can significantly decrease and even eliminate the need for all of this paperwork by allowing users to transfer information electronically, through transfer systems, email, and web applications.

Accessibility. All calibration measurements not only need constant monitoring, but also meticulous records so that users can be traced and problems pinpointed. Adequate software for the purposes of calibration will allow cardinal test points to be programmed into the layout, so that day to day functions can be easily accessed from a given way point.

Most systems will rely on several applications to run reports, so it is important that any management software has the ability to collect and integrate reports which are generated through different applications. Consider the number of people who use the calibrating instruments of a given business day to day, week to week. There may be hundreds of people checking and rechecking the valuable information, all loading the information into the same system. It's important that the software managing the system has the capability to sort the information in a way that is easy for employees to access. Intuitive software allows a monitoring person to program the data using computer skills already developed, so that the addition of information follows a streamlined process.

Calibration of sensitive instruments is an important task in many industries, and with calibration management software the risk of error is reduced as is the cost of materials. Software which employees can use intuitively and which allows for alerts and quick access to problem areas can make the difference between a quick fix and the loss of a day's operations.
