FORWARD THINKING Bill, a progressive maintenance manager, observed that most maintenance schedules are prepared only one week in advance. He thought his operations counterpart would appreciate having a longer-term look at major maintenance activities. He further observed that most of the work planned for the mobile equipment fleet consisted of major component replacements and overhauls. He noted that these two activities constituted periodic maintenance, work that was repeated at the end of a specific time period, usually measured in elapsed operating hours.

A commitment must be made to exclusively utilize the new system, as its elements are linked together to coordinate the inflow of data and the integrated output of information. The continued use of previous system elements compounds the successful implementation of the new system and the value it can yield. In this example, the organization failed to develop a solid plan for phasing out old systems and implementing the new system. Immediately after a new system is selected, an implementation plan should be developed.

He noted that these two activities constituted periodic maintenance, work that was repeated at the end of a specific time period, usually measured in elapsed operating hours. Bill conferred with the planning department, and they determined that these activities represented about 65% of all work that was planned.
