CHAMPS Inspection application is designed for managing inspections performed for specified equipment. The application eliminates cumbersome paper trails, ensuring that proper historical data is retained and easily accessed for audits and legal purposes.
CHAMPS inspection facilitates creation of two types of inspection templates, a partial inspection and a full inspection. Partial inspections allow the inspections to be forwarded to the supervisor without all line items being reviewed and requiring signature. A full inspection requires all line items to be reviewed and signed in order to pass the inspection on to supervisor for review. On the inspection template, one may also indicate if any line item will require a comment written against it. This adds another element of validation before the inspection can be completed and sent to the supervisor for review.
Once an inspection is started, the equipment being inspected is placed into a state of being inspected. The inspection line items may be signed off by multiple inspectors out in the field. Based on criteria established in the inspection template, the inspection can be marked complete and available for supervisory review.
At any time during an inspection, the inspector(s) may deem the equipment out of service. This stops the inspection immediately and sends the inspection to the supervisor for review. The equipment status will also be set to out of service.
Inspection line items may have multiple comments written against them, including if any action has taken place, or if any action needs to be taken regarding the line item. A crew may be assigned to address the line item needing work. Any inspection comment prompting corrective action will appear in the corrective actions browse page. When initially navigating to this page, a filter will automatically be applied based on signed in user’s assigned crew. Crew members may then review the line items and resolve the issues.
Supervisors and managers may browse active and archived inspections. They can review the outstanding corrective actions written against any particular inspection and sign inspections that have been completed by field inspectors. Two signatures are required for the inspection to have the final sign-off. These signatures must be unique and the signed in users must have a role of supervisor in order to have the authority for signing.
