Equipment Reliability Analysis May
Be Used to Optimize PM Task Lists
The above grid demonstrates how MaintSmart uses
reliability analysis to suggest PM task intervals. Column 2,
Cause, is one of more failure causes that occurred on
this equipment item. Column 3, Assigned Task, lists tasks
that have been assigned to this machine's PM task list. Column 4,
MTBF, is the calculated Mean(average) Time Between
Failures based on actual equipment run time and recorded failures. Column
5, Interval, lists the PM task interval on the current PM
task list for this machine.
To change a task interval simply right
mouse click the grid row containing this record and select the menu item
Change PM Interval. Enter the new PM interval and
MaintSmart auomatically updates the PM task list for this equipment item.
Continue to monitor this equipment and adjust the interval and or tasks
appropriately using your expert judgement and MaintSmart's guidance.
Notice the other menu items. Additional
functionality is accessible from this screen for your convienience. This
is a truly effective way of building and maintaining PM tasks
lists. No more guesswork. This may also be uses to
eliminate unneeded tasks or lengthen task intervals thus
freeing up maintenance personnel for other duties.

building the optimum PM list. No other CMMS does this at any
