What Should You Know About Maintenance?

As far as I am concerned, jargon is not really that important. Aside from making sure that we are discussing about the same thing. If what I see as condition-based maintenance, you consider predictive maintenance does not really matter. As long as we can reasonably talk about the important principles.

What is condition based maintenance and how can you use it? On the other hand, a lot of people usually ask questions about the various kinds of maintenance, and this article would serve as a quick overview regarding the various kinds of maintenance.

Preventive maintenance versus corrective maintenance
At the very top level, we view maintenance as being either corrective or preventive. If we do preventive maintenance, we are actually doing a task before a failure will take palce. And these tasks are aimed in decreasing the consequences of the failure, preventing a failure, or evaluating the risks a failure would happen. On the other hand, when we do corrective maintenance, the failure has already took place we are just trying to restore the functionality of the equipment. To make things clear, corrective maintenance can be the result of a careful run to failure method.

What should you know about preventive maintenance?
Preventive maintenance is defined as “as equipment maintenance method that is based on restoring or replacing an asset at a secured interval regardless of its present condition. Planned restoration tasks as well as replacement tasks are under your preventive maintenance tasks.

Preventive maintenance or preventative maintenance, is fundamentally a kind of maintenance that is performed at set intervals while making sure that the equipment is still functioning with the aim to decrease the chances of failure from happening or as much as possible, stop failure.

This kind of maintenance can be based on time, for instance, every week, every month, or every four months. On the other hand, preventive maintenance can also be founded on the utilization, for instance, every 100 cycles, every 1000 hours or like your car : service every 10000 km.

Aside from the regular intervals method or time based maintenance, there are also other kinds of maintenance that is included in the category of preventive maintenance and these are the following:

predictive maintenance or PDM, condition based maintenance or CBM, risk based maintenance or RBM, failure finding maintenance or FFM and time based maintenance or TBM.

The preventive maintenance involves a lot of different forms of maintenance that are taken advantage even before a failure has occurred and predictive maintenance is a type of your preventive maintenance. When people would discuss about preventive maintenance, they mean time based maintenance which is replacing or repairing a fixed interval regardless of the current status of the equipment.
