Elevate your safety levels and ensure that equipment is only ever operated if it has passed a series of checks.
Use Prestarts on any device and make sure that everything is recorded and nothing is lost. Go paperless with MEX Prestarts.
Paper based prestarts could never allow you to capture the images you need to make a case. Point and shoot and attach to your prestart with ease.
If you pick up a defect as you work through your checks, request maintenance there and then by either creating a MEX Request or a Work Order.
You will need to be on the latest build of MEX released in June 2021 in order to be able to use the new MEX Prestarts.
Once you have upgraded to the latest build, you will need to add the module for access through your Side Modules. To do this:
Here is a tech tip detailing these steps: Add Prestarts to the MEX Main Menu
All prestarts are independent checks that are assigned to specific assets. These prestart checks can then be set up to identify faults and create Maintenance Requests or Work Orders so that the issue can be rectified.
Creating a Prestart in MEX is easy. Just make sure you have your questions all listed out. Then work through the create Prestart option in the MEX Control Files to set up your answers and the questions that will be displayed to the operator.
Take a look at this video to see how easy it is to create and use a prestart in MEX:
Yes, Prestarts have been designed to allow for processing even when there is no network connection. Prerequisite being: You need to have first synced the Prestarts module onto your device first. Do note that you will need to be on the latest version (1.20) to achieve this.
MEX Prestarts needs Asset data and the associated questions in order to operate. When in good network range, open MEX and tap the prestarts module. This will perform a sync and ensure that the data you need is ready on the device.
No, As mentioned earlier, just make sure you have synced when in network connection. The MEX App is designed to handle syncing whenever the device is back in range.
Sync the necessary asset information to complete your prestart.
Carry out the Prestart, running through all the checks.
When back in network range sync all data and images to your database.
No, Prestarts has been included as a Side Module of the MEX Maintenance Software. The Prestart specific user licensing however will need to be purchased to allow your operators to carry out the checks.
Prestart specific users can only use MEX Mobile devices and are limited to just the prestarts module. Although a normal MEX user can also use Prestarts in main MEX, having prestart only users saves your MEX concurrent licenses for your maintenance users.
Yes, they do, along with Barcodes.
Both the QR and Barcode labels can be printed from MEX Reports or you can print an Individual Asset’s QR Code from directly inside the Asset’s Details.
Yes, barcoding and the ability to scan QR Codes have been improved with the MEX Mobile app and can be used in more listings than ever before. Using your devices camera, scan a QR Code and quick start your Prestart.
Simply scan the QR Code and confirm the Asset's details.
Carry out the Prestart, Running through all the checks.
All Information, Images and Readings are save directly in MEX.
Paper based prestarts could never allow you to capture the images you need to make a case.
As you work through each of your Prestart checks, you have the option to add multiple photos to each check.
When a Prestart is completed, any defects identified are accompanied with these images, giving you the full picture of the issue at hand.
You can then attach them to any Requests or Work Orders raised from the checks.
