Maintenance data for international
car manufacturers

the customer

GROB-WERKE GmbH & Co. KG is one of the biggest manufacturers of production lines for the car industry. As a rule, GROB plants consist of a variety of interlinked milling centers.

the task

The operators of major production facilities expect detailed maintenance data, instructions and maintenance plans from GROB. These must be set up to support the customer’s unique, company-specific maintenance management system. For GROB, this means that: Each customer gets somewhat different maintenance documentation. The workload for GROB had multiplied within the space of a few years.

the solution

Eight editors now handle the entire GROB maintenance documentation.

MRO | ASSIST is the tool chosen to create the maintenance plans. The car manufacturers receive the best data quality. Previous documentation systems cannot create this data or can only create it at a high cost. GROB uses MRO | ASSIST for the creation of parts lists-based maintenance plans and maintenance documentation.  The project parts list is exported from SAP and imported into MRO | ASSIST. This controls the generation of maintenance documentation together with editorial input from the editor.

Today, GROB can issue the maintenance documentation in a customized format for the customers it represents globally at the touch of a button. As a Word, Excel or PDF file or in XML format. What’s more, the maintenance data created can be imported into many common maintenance management systems operated by the customer.
