MEX Overview

What is MEX?

MEX is a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) which enables users to manage preventative maintenance on their equipment and assets, with maintenance scheduling, automated work order creation, job tracking, equipment readings, reporting, and more.

MEX’s built-in asset register allows users to record information on all assets and locations, including account codes, purchase details, supplier, warranty information, previous asset locations, and more. Full work histories can be documented, with last service dates and readings, any spare parts used when repairing the asset, and any outstanding work to be completed. Users can also create any number of custom fields to record additional information. Minimal information can be recorded in MEX during setup, with users able to return to asset records and fill in more details at a later date.

Work orders can be created manually by users, for maintenance requests, or their creation can be automated through preventative maintenance scheduling. Users define the frequency at which maintenance is required for assets, based either on usage or time, and MEX automatically generates work orders according to this schedule. Work orders can be used to record as much or as little information as desired, with users able to record only essential information to reduce the time spent at the computer, or plan and document every detail including tasks, manpower, spare parts, tools, instructions, procedures, dates, and more.

I use MEX daily and it is great to track all maintenance activities.

Our Preventative Maintenance schedules in MEX have resulted in regular accurate servicing of our equipment which has led to a reduction in our downtime.

MEX are quick to offer solutions, but do not always listen to the Customer. Time will resolve that as the relationship between the new Maintenance Manager and MEX evolves.
Integration has proven difficult and there are still issues to be dealt with. GBC is actively working on a plan to address issues and tighten up the integration performance.
There is great scope for improvement at GBC, and there is a plan to address that. There is a lack of both ownership and understanding below the Maintenance Manager, a legacy of the previous Maintenance Manager. Again, GBC is working to address that.

Casella Family Brands initiated the use of Mex in 2007 "Just to help us with Maintenance", Who would have thought of the wide usage & power of the system now, The Business has grown considerably & Mex has adapted & grown with us from the early days of 10 users to now having 225 users, the business was on 1 site now we have multiple sites looking after maintenance function of 150+ maintenance staff & an asset register with over 10,000 assets. All functions of the Mex System are utilized from the requesting process & approval to the acquisition of parts & final Scheduling, A comprehensive history has been developed which we now have as a resource to use on reporting regulatory requirements & in moving the maintenance function forward strategically. The system may not be the biggest out there but its ability to be adaptable to our designed maintenance program whilst keeping a robust user environment is invaluable in running the day to day maintenance function, Mex is now in the centre of all the maintenance functions on all our sites giving us control of all our labour, materials, running costs & information.

Our Preventative Maintenance schedules in MEX have resulted in regular accurate servicing of our equipment which has led to a reduction in our downtime.

Pros

MEX is an excellent tool displaying maintenance programs and PMs work completed to our external auditors.

Cons

PM categories ie fixed, triggered hierarchy etc. I would rather one only to select as it is confusing.

Response from MEX

Hi Alec,

Thanks so much for taking the time to review MEX. We are stoked to hear that using MEX has led to a reduction in your downtime!

If you have any issues with the PM Schedules you can always check out tech tips on our blog or contact our friendly support team on +61 7 3992 4777.

Pros

The software is simple in nature. This makes learning the product easy, and training is accomplished with minimum fuss. The application is solid, the releases (Builds) are reliable. Support is top notch, and very responsive.

Cons

GBC did not make a great job of establishing their deliverables for the software. As a result, the product has been slow to deliver a lot of the benefits which are clearly there for the taking. A change of Maintenance Manager so soon after go-Live did not help GBC in achieving its goals either, but that is being addressed by the new Maintenance Manager.

Response from MEX

Hi Paul,

Pros

Its ability to adapt to our changing maintenance function while withholding a robust user environment.

Cons

The systems scheduler is clunky & needs improvement, eventually as every user continues down the path of true jobs control the scheduling of the workload must be the pathway to this result.

Response from MEX

Thanks very much for the review Harvey, we¿re happy to hear that you¿ve had such a great experience with MEX over the last 9 years and thank you for the feedback regarding the scheduler. If you ever need any assistance you can always phone in and talk to our support staff. Thanks for taking the time to review MEX.

very good

Pros

Easy to implement, and learn. Does all the preventative planning and speeds up the re-occurring purchasing

Cons

No long term asset management functionality. I would like to see this implemented into MEX, so you can plan long-term improvements and capital replacements using MEX for major work at least 3-10 years ahead. Also no PM and asset criticality in system.

Response from MEX

Hi Martin,

Thank you for sharing your feedback, both positive and constructive. We are super pleased to hear that you find MEX easy to implement and learn. In regards to long term Asset Management functionality, we would love to hear your thoughts on what more we can do to move in this direction. Do note with a recent update of MEX we have introduced Asset Criticality so you may need to update your system to make use of this new function. A member of our support team will be in touch shortly to help you with this. Thanks again for your review - we really appreciate it!

Kind Regards,
