Quality software should be more than a tool that does what it was built to do. Instead, it should provide innovative functionality and enhanced solutions, minimizing efforts in performing everyday tasks, improving operations, and increasing compliance within organizations.
Collaboration is the future of asset lifecycle and service event management. With an industry that already relies on common goals and shared efforts, we are on the verge of a paradigm shift that will revolutionize the work we do. Industries can no longer rely on an isolated, inward focus. Instead, the time has come to use collaboration to bring metrology and asset management up-to-date with the present world and into the future.
In decades past, asset management was a solitary endeavor. Each company and manufacturer focused on maintaining and improving their assets without any additional input from other organizations. Service events, repairs, and uninterrupted operations were the responsibility of the asset manager and they were required to devote the time, attention, and efforts needed to meet this responsibility - no matter what it cost personally.
Scheduling service. Successful service. Service documentation. Satisfied customers. These tasks and duties require most of your attention on a day-to-day basis. As an asset owner or service provider, maintaining your reputation and ability to meet your clients’ demands is the most important part of your operations. Your employee training, work processes, and mission are built around delivering efficient, accurate, reliable services while creating a business model that allows you to service effectively
Collaboration in the asset lifecycle is a new concept that is changing the way asset owners and service providers operate. This simple change in thinking is creating a new way to improve and transform every part of asset and service event management.
Ensuring 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance To properly operate any regulated organization, thousands upon thousands of records are required. For decades, these records were printed and filed - offering physical evidence of the work being done to support compliance with good industry practices.

Proactive Partnering With Your Calibration Vendor Can Save You Time, Money, and Auditing Hassles By Shannon M. Spizzirri See the original post on www.qualitydigest.com They say, "If you want it done right, do it yourself." You've said it, I've said it, everyone has said it. But what happens when you must rely on an outside party to provide a service over which you'd prefer to have control? How do you identify work that can be performed in-house and work that should, or must, be performed elsewhere? How do you decide who should do the work? And how do you maintain compliance to your quality program when a third party does the work? What often begins as a simple procurement process can quickly become a complex quality issue. This is particularly true with outsourcing calibration services. The calibration of test and measurement instrumentation must meet quality requirements that are critical to employees' safety, your product's quality, and maintaining your accreditation programs and auditability. Trusting a third party to meet these requirements means not only making that leap of faith but also establishing a well-defined process for outsourcing calibrations.
Adherents Say These Services Reduce Costs, Decrease Response Times, and Increase Uptime By Gail Dutton See the original post on http://www.genengnews.com Are lab asset management services worth their salt? Millennium Pharmaceuticals( mlnm.com) thinks so. A two-year relationship with Thermo Fisher Scientific ( www.thermo.com) has trimmed its annual multimillion-dollar maintenance budget by 15–20% compared to what it would have paid the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), according to Jack Parker, associate director of asset management. Such cost savings tend only to accrue during the first three years of any lab asset management program, though. GE Healthcare (www.gehealthcare.com), with 10 years experience in healthcare asset management and multivendor service, says the greater benefit is increased service levels that result in more uptime.
