Slow, often inaccurate, is a poor use of man hours, does not require appropriate training from employees, and is often disconnected.

Outsource

Can be fairly inexpensive but only for a given period of time depending on the amount of equipment and man hours required for accurate medical equipment calibration.

Also places the responsibility for accurate calibration on a company that specializes in the task.

Lag time exists between medical equipment calibration data and the assignment of maintenance tasks.

Can become expensive over time.

Employees are not necessarily prepared with appropriate training.
