CRL 1-hr: 9/26 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

When preparing to visit a new client site recently, I had to program my GPS with the address to find the facility. In establishing the address, it stepped me through entering the state, city, and the physical location. Then I had a choice to make, fuel efficient, direct route or scenic route? I then realized these are the same choices we have when establishing Preventive Maintenance (PM) and Predictive Maintenance (PdM) routes.

If you have routes established, now might be a good time to see how you've programmed them. If you don't have any established now might be a good time to program them. Are the routes you've established logical and direct? If the facility covers a vast area, are you starting at the furthest point and working back? Keep in mind the goal is to establish logical routes that offer direct work opportunities and fuel efficiency (both fossil and people), while avoiding sending resources on a scenic trip.
