2What is the Custodial Module? The Custodial Module is an integrated custodial management system that works in tandem with WebTMA.It will allow your organization to capture custodial operational costs, create custodial routes and schedules, and create inspections based on those custodial routes.
3What does the Custodial Module do? Create labor estimatesCapture and track estimated custodial costsManage organizational custodial standardsCreate custodial routes/schedulesLoad-balance custodial schedules for schedulingCreate custodial inspectionsPerform custodial inspections with mobileTMA Go or WebTMA GO applications for iPad
4What Setup is Required?Area records need to be set up for custodial useTechnician records need to be set up for custodial useThe following must be created:custodial shiftscustodial taskscustodial tradescustodial audit items (cleanable surfaces)custodial programs/templates
5Methodology: APPA Levels of Cleanliness APPA has 5 standard Levels of Cleanliness.The desired or appropriate level of cleanliness differs by organization. You can select the one that is right for your organizational needs.The APPA Levels of Cleanliness range from 1-5.APPA Level 1 is the cleanest, Level 5 is least clean.
6Methodology: APPA Levels of Cleanliness Orderly SpotlessnessOrdinary TidinessCasual InattentionModerate DinginessUnkempt NeglectLevels of cleanliness determine the frequency tasks are performed; they also directly impact the staffing requirements at any facility.
7Methodology: Am I Limited to APPA Requirements? The Custodial Module does not limit your custodial manager to using APPA standards.You can create your own matrix based on your facility's experience.You can use ISSA cleaning tasks, APPA tasks, or your own custom tasks.
8Using the Custodial Module: Routine Assignments Create routes with rooms assignedAssign routes to specific shiftsAssign routes to an individual or a teamView total CSF and WAM for each assigned roomAPPA talks about two basic classes of custodial work.Routine work (work you do on a daily or weekly schedule).Project work (work you only perform as time permits or as space scheduling gives you access to those spaces). This is often done when a room is not occupied during breaks or after an occupant has left the space during a move.Routes can be created for Routine work and Project work. Routes should be designed to be efficient (minimize travel time). The sum of all tasks being performed within a route should not exceed the average daily productivity minutes listed for your custodial staff.Routes belong to custodial zones, which are managed by custodial supervisors.
9Using the Custodial Module: Routine Assignment Scheduler Schedule existing Routine AssignmentsRe-assign routes based on fluctuating work schedulesSchedule by Supervisor and Shift
10Using the Custodial Module: Custodial Inspections Perform Inspections based on Routine AssignmentsPerform inspections “On the Fly” with mobileTMA GO and WebTMA GOReport on inspection scores and resultsIn keeping with TMA’s philosophy that handheld devices can provide automation efficiencies far beyond those that paper-based systems can provide, we have included a full-featured inspection module for custodial work.
11Using the Custodial Module: Custodial Inspection Browse Browse and search through current and past inspectionsFilter by Inspector, Supervisor, and CustodianFilter by Area Type or Cleanliness LevelExport queries to Microsoft ExcelIt is important to review and analyze past inspections by various filters. By keeping our design consistent with the rest of TMA products, we have provided a powerful Browse window to help you with that analysis.
12Using the Custodial Module: Project Assignments The Project Assignment window is used to assign less frequent project tasks to a custodian or crew, whereas a custodial routine assignment is for regular daily cleaning.You can convert custodial projects into work orders if desired.
13Using the Custodial Module: Labor Estimates You can use the Labor Estimates window to estimate the amount of labor required to clean your facilityThe Annual Cost/CSF column calculates custodial costs per square foot. The column total shows the average cost to clean the facility per square foot.
14Using the Custodial Module: Load Balancing Balancing assignments allows you to streamline your work when creating schedules.Manually set the days-of-the-week when individual tasks or task groups are doneUse the Balance Load link on the Action Menu to automatically balance the days-of-the-week for tasks or task groups.
15Using the Custodial Module: Reports No system is complete without a set of reports and graphs. We have included a number of reports in the base system and expect this number to grow based on feedback from our clients.Please feel free to give us your ideas about what kind of data you want to get out of this system.
