The Maintenance Program

There are four steps in the development of a maintenance program. Step 1 is to determine the present condition of the existing facility. This step includes a detailed examination of each of the major energy-consuming systems. The output from this examination is a list of the motors, lights, transformers, and other components that make up each system, together with a report of the condition of each. Step 2 is the preparation of a list of routine maintenance tasks with an estimate of the number of times that each task must be performed. This list should also include, for each task, the craft, the needed material, the time required, and the appropriate equipment. These data are then incorporated in step 3 into a regular schedule for the accomplishment of the desired maintenance. Step 4 is the monitoring necessary to keep the program in force once it has been initiated. These four steps are discussed in more detail in the following sections.
