GLOCO Automation of MRI Service/Repair Scheduling

ISMT E-200 Capstone Project


Company overview
Company Overview

GLOCO manufactures, sells, and services MRI machines in Europe, the America, Australasia, and the Middle East.

Historically a niche player, moving towards capturing more market share; needs to improve profitability.

Quick expansion led to drop in quality of service. Maintenance contract fees not covering cost of service.


Business objectives
Business Objectives

Transform the Service Centers so that instead of operating at a loss, they become a revenue producing part of the company.

Increase customer satisfaction in order to retain service contracts and increase repeat sales.


Project scope
Project Scope

A system that enables the MRI equipment to detect machine failures and transmit diagnostic information, allowing GLOCO to open an incident ticket and dispatch a repair technician from the local service center.

The system should also automatically schedule routine preventative maintenance as covered in the customer maintenance contracts.


Benefits
Benefits

Reduce local service center help desk staff (phone reps) in order to realize labor cost savings.

Reduced on-site visit time for engineers to diagnose problems = reduced cost basis for service calls.

Better scheduling of routine preventative maintenance = higher customer satisfaction numbers

Increased renewal of service contracts for GLOCO.



Current business process diagram
Current Business Process Diagram

  • Equipment Failure Event

  • Customer Discovers Equipment Failure

  • Local Service Center receives call

  • Technician is notified and dispatched

  • Technician diagnoses problem (possibly returning with repair parts)

  • Technician completes repairs, notifies office.


New business process diagram

  • Equipment Error/Service Code Generated

  • Data center receives notification and opens trouble ticket

  • Technician is assigned and dispatched

  • Service is completed and ticket is closed.


Use case 1
Use Case 1

  • Use Case 1: MRI machine failure

  • Description: This use case describes the actions when a customer’s MRI machine experiences a failure.

  • Triggers

  • Internal machine failure, may be electrical, mechanical, or software related.

  • Precondition

  • A GLOCO MRI machine was installed at a customer site.

  • The machine has internal diagnostic detection and a display console.


Use case 2
Use Case 2

  • Use Case 2: MRI – routine maintenance

  • Description: This use case describes the actions when a customer’s MRI machine has reached a routine maintenance target date.

  • Triggers

  • GLOCO company software determines that a customer’s machine should be scheduled for routine maintenance

  • Precondition

  • A GLOCO MRI machine was installed at a customer site.

  • The machine’s last completed maintenance is tracked in the GLOCO database.




Project success criteria
Project Success Criteria

  • The net repair/maintenance costs to GLOCO will be reduced to a level of at least 3% below the maintenance contract costs to the customer within 3 years.

  • 80 percent of customers in each region will have adopted the new software one year after the first installations have begun.

  • The number of days that engineers spend on visits per each customer’s MRI machine will be reduced from 14 to 6.

  • The rate of renewal of annual maintenance contracts will be increased from 55% to 85% of current customers within 3 years following implementation.

Implementation overview
Implementation Overview

  • GLOCO technicians will plan to make customer site visits to apply the new MRI diagnostic controls software during the target time period = within one year of official release.

  • The local GLOCO sales representatives will contact the customer by phone and accompany the technical field engineer during the on-site upgrade visit.

  • The GLOCO company website support section will be updated with instructions and downloadable documentation describing the automated support/maintenance procedures and centralized service center contact information.

  • In parallel with the software implementation, all “Level 1” phone support will be transitioned to the central service center in India.
