The MEX Computerised Maintenance Management System certainly is popular with use across large and small organisations and various industry.While it is quite user friendly and capable in many ways, it is questionable whether all are getting the best of what it has been designed for or capable of.


MEX does indeed have a lot of capabilities and different ways can utilise as a system. Whether an individual user, an administrator or utilising across multiple sites and linking into various systems there are many tools within and different ways to interact and get the best from.

Come along and share your experience and practices with others facing the same opportunities and challenges with getting the most from the MEX CMMS.

Some of the topics to be discussed on the day may include:

  • Integration between maintenance, stores, purchasing & finance
  • Planning & Scheduling tools

About SIRF Rt Common Interest Work Groups

All SIRF Rt events are designed to provide a safe environment for open discussion with peers on the topic of interest they are working on, in and around. There will be no vendor companies in attendance at this meeting. SIRF Rt Common Interest Work Groups (CWIG’s) provide the best forum for peer-to-peer learning and best practice sharing. Participants are asked to bring something for ‘show and tell’ about the topic of the day as it applies at their organisation – a mini presentation (2 slides), something that you can present in 5min maximum. It could comprise a few photos, a brief descriptions of the current efforts/learnings, a couple of charts or graphs – anything that will help improve the discussion or share knowledge or expertise. After each company shares the deeper discussion follows, guided by our practiced facilitators.
