Let’s say you have one MEX system, yet operate two separate sites. Naturally you want the asset details to remain separate to each site and have the MEX users of those sites accessing their own assets, work orders, and inventory. MEX Regions is your answer!
Regions has been designed as an added feature in MEX to allow companies with multiple "Sites" to have each site run autonomously. It has the capacity to manage a single database and run reports from a management level across all sites.
Regions in MEX allows the system to be set up so that the data entered is visible to certain Users, based upon the Region that they have been assigned when they log in.
The Asset Register in MEX can be set up in a structure that holds each sites’ assets under their own branch. For example
An example Asset Tree Structure showing multiple sites in MEX
From this layout a Region can then be set up and the correct assets for each respective site.
The users of these sites can then be given access to their respective site’s region and will only be able to work with the Assets and its associated work orders, preventative maintenance schedules, requests etc…
Site 1: Factory 1
Site 2: Factory 2
Do note that administrative users will be able to see and interact with the entire database allowing for an easy overview of the whole operation.
Although we are looking at the Asset Register in this example, most of MEX can be Regionalised. For example, each Region could include only the Account Codes that apply to their operation.
The following areas can be Regionalised in MEX:
There are some basic rules to be aware of when setting up Regions which are outlined below:
