Solution

Masinotek provides its proprietary AHJO maintenance software to ensure the optimal operation of the Turku Municipal Water water supply infrastructure. All TSV assets and equipment critical to the functioning of the city water supply are in a database along with lists of maintenace tasks for each entity. Software identifies responsible parties for the maintenance task and schedules required completion of the maintenance. A maintence log where technicians can record notes and observations helps to enhance the system.

Beginning work in the morning, each supervisor or techinician can view the day's maintenance tasks on their mobile phones. Reports on work completed are delivered to division managers. Alerts can inform managers of incomplete work or potential malfunctions. QR code assigned to each asset or equipment item provides quick acess for workers completing preventive maintenance or managers checking their work.
