Step 2 in IDCON's 3-step process for optimizing Preventive Maintenance is selecting the Maintenance Method. We break this Step into three components:
- Function and component
- Failure Modes
- Maintenance Method and essential care task
A few questions to ask:
What is the service function? How does the component work and fail? Does it have a Failure Developing Period? Can I prevent /predict the failure of the component? What tools will be used to measure condition (subjective/objective)?
Asking these questions can help you determine the method. Do you want to learn more about optimizing PM?
