Managing Calibration with QSToolbox

Have a look at a worked example of managing calibration of measuring and test equipment using QSToolbox - a recent addition to our support resources.

As a follow-up to a previous post about signing calibration certificates, we’ve added a new support article which follows through the procedure for managing the calibration of test and measuring equipment using QSToolbox. The procedure is pretty much the same for maintenance too.

In brief:

  1. Receive the asset
  1. Enter the details into QSToolbox
  1. Create any initial records, attaching scans of associated documents, e.g. calibration certificates.
  1. Setup schedules for calibration, maintenance, and any other regular tasks to be performed.
  1. Check the calendar periodically to see what’s due.
  1. Add records as you do work.
  1. Review the records to make data based decisions on schedule adjustments and repair or replace.

For more, also have a look at our support resource on what is calibration , which includes a somewhat amusing video on calibration made many years ago by the US Navy.
