Animal Production Maintenance Software

Meat and poultry plants are subject to stricter control and tougher regulation than other food manufacturers. This is due, in part, to the difficulty of controlling outbreaks and eliminating pathogens in wet environments, where animal fluids and waste are prevalent. When not properly maintained, meat processing facilities and equipment are potential sources for microbiological and physical contamination. Further, under-performing assets put product quality and safety at risk.

FTMaintenance preventive maintenance software for meat plants helps maintenance teams avoid – and even anticipate – breakdowns on meat processing equipment. Create asset records to store information about a piece of equipment’s condition, operating parameters, and maintenance history. Schedule regular inspections to assess whether maintenance is required and what needs to be done. Establish a preventive maintenance plan that helps you avoid emergency repairs and unplanned downtime.
