Real-time intervention

The implementation, as well as the removal of controls, is now synchronized in real time. All those directly or indirectly involved in the work will now be able to know the exact status of the work and plan their contribution.
You can still work offline, the data will be synced automatically when the network is accessible.

Monitoring of lockout actions

To allow you to have a more complete view of your responsibilities and thus shorten response time, lockout sheet assignment (creation, assignment, status changes) now appear on the home page in your list of responsibilities.

Risk management process

It is now possible to manage the risk approval process to ensure, on the one hand, that you're making progress and to avoid communicating unrevised risks to employees. You can assign a status to each risk and view the status of all your risks directly in the risk list or in the indicator on top of the list.

Improvement of the risk list

To allow you to better understand the distribution of your risks, it is now possible to see the machines associated with each risk directly in the list.

Improved risk research

In addition to searching risks by hazards, tasks, identifiers or positions, the risk search field is now able to find risks by risk index, unit name, unit identifier, machine name and machine identifier.

Deployment of minor fixes

Deployment of minor fixes

Collaboration and error prevention

Modifying the parameters of the risk matrix leads to a recalculation of all the risks within the platform. Users attempting to modify a risk during this period are now informed that a global recalculation is underway and that they will be able to resume their work shortly.

Optimization of inspection routes

To help inspectors better plan their schedules, we have grouped scheduled observation points based on the due date and location of the inspection.

Improved default printed format of lockout sheets

Improved the default print format of lockout sheets to make them easier to read for workers.

Lockout contingency plan in case of network loss

In order to ensure business continuity in the event of an Internet access blackout, it is now possible to make a regular backup of all your lockout procedures on local disks.

Improved navigation

Nothing is more frustrating than scrolling down a page searching for something, opening a link to check out whether it’s what you’re looking for, backing out because it’s not, only to find out you’re back to the top of the page and you have to scroll back down again… So to make sure you don’t ever have to go through this using CONFORMiT, the position of the previous page is now kept in memory to allow you to continue exactly where you left off.

Adding options in inspection scheduling

It is now possible to schedule inspections at the following frequencies:
o Daily
o Weekly
o Monthly
o Quarterly
o Semi-annual
o Annual
With the addition of these new options, it is now also possible to set the date from which inspections must be scheduled so that you do not have to wait until the next period to start them.

Improved default printed format of lockout sheets

We have made some changes to the default print format of lockout sheets following feedback from several clients.

Duplication of lockout sheets

Because you often need to create task or partial lockouts to speed up recuring tasks and doing it from scratch every time is time consuming, we’ve added the ability to duplicate an existing lockout sheet. This will allow you to quickly create a new procedure and simply remove the steps that are no longer necessary. You’ll even have the ability to choose whether you want to include the associated documents in the process.

Improved behavior of lockout instruction text fields

The text fields in the lockout sheets will now print exactly how you created them. We were previously removing seemingly unnecessary characters like superfluous carriage returns and trailing spaces but realised that some of you wanted to keep them because you were using them to manage the distribution of information in those fields.

Access management to the inspection module

In order to avoid user’s cognitive overload, the inspection module can, if necessary, be completely hidden from users.

Optimization of the modification of the risk matrix

All changes related to the risk matrix (reference list, risk calculation formula, etc.) were reviewed to reduce their execution time. All of these tasks, which typically impact all the risks and events documented in in the platform, now run in the background to avoid slowing you down and compute times have been reduced by more than 95%.

Adding mathematical operators to the risk formula

In order to cover additional risk level calculation scenarios, the square root (√) has been added to the list of available operators.

Machine structure management

In order to offer more flexibility in the reporting of events and the performance of inspections, it is now possible to document the list of your machines, functional locations, regardless of the modules acquired. Previously, only customers with risk analysis or lockout modules were able to access this functionality. Functional machines and locations are linked to the organizational units as childs, but are managed separately from organizational units, as there is no need to manage members, owners, addresses, etc.

Improved document management tool

The tool used to upload documents to events and CAPAs has been replaced to increase its accessibility and performance. In addition to being faster, the tool is now easier to use for people with disabilities.

Updated look for the inspection pages

In order to standardize the user experience and provide more information to users, we have revised the display of the "inspection topics" page. You will now be able to quickly know, for each inspection topic:
o The units concerned
o The total number of observation points
o The number of planned observation points
o The number of changes waiting to be deployed
o The date of deployment
o Subject status (active/inactive)
This redesign of the list of topics also allowed us to review the detail page of each inspection topic and improve the layout of information.

Deployment of minor fixes

Lockout procedure filters

The location filter is now displayed as a tree instead of a list so you can find the procedures you are looking for faster.

Improved navigation and disposition of information

The breadcrumb (where you see which pages you visited before) has been moved to the top banner to allow you to see as much information as possible in each of the pages of the software.

Increase the number of characters in task names

The number of characters allowed in task names has been increased as a result of customer feedback.

Lockout validation process history

You can now reconstruct the complete timeline of the approval process for any procedure using the information available in the history.

Intervention location filter

The intervention location filter is now displayed as a tree instead of a list so you can find the procedures you are looking for faster.

Details of an intervention

The name of the contact person and the work order associated with an intervention are now visible and editable on the web to allow you to make changes directly from your workstation without having to go through your mobile device.

Delete an intervention

It is now possible to delete an intervention, regardless of its status to allow you to keep control over the actual work to be performed.

Manage users from Azure AD

It is now possible to automate user management in CONFORMiT (create/modify/delete) from Azure AD. You can now be sure that your employees always have the right access to the platform without lifting a finger.

Automated risk level calculation

It is now possible to automate the calculation of the severity of a risk based on the selected consequences. This will allow you to simplify the work of risk analysis, because it is often easier, when the analysis is done in groups, to speak in terms of consequence than in terms of severity.

Managing the order of lockout steps

You can now move lockout steps within a procedure by dragging and dropping instead of using the up/down arrows. This will allow you to make changes to your lockout procedures more quickly.

Duration of inspections

It is now possible to consult the duration of inspections on the web. Aside from allowing you to better plan inspections according to the time required to perform them, it will allow you to perform checks on the quality of individual inspections.

Major Event Management

Because an incident can often have more than one consequence, you can now link together multiple events to break down and manage individual accident reports, investigations, root cause analyses and safety measures.

Support for multilingual businesses

In order to avoid errors due to misunderstanding, companies can add a 3rd supported language to their environment. For example, a user will be able to complete an inspection in Spanish (interface and data), his supervisor will be able to look at it in English and the plant manager will be able to follow the indicators in French without any loss of information.
