The top 10 Q&As about maintenance, reliability, and facility management

Meter based planned preventative maintenance is maintenance

This type of maintenance is performed for general upkeep and to stop a breakdown before it can occur. The best way to plan preventative maintenance is to use meter-based readings. Meter-based readings track the activity and measure the condition of equipment, such as the number of hours an equipment has been in use, how far it has driven or a certain mileage, and other operating conditions. Once a condition or usage level is reached, an alert is triggered that produces a technician work order and saves the information to a CMMS asset history.
