Planned Maintenance

A task or activity that is carried out on an asset is called a task, therefore a planned maintenance task plan is the set of activities that must be performed on an asset at a predetermined time and interval. The activities generally consist of actions focused on maintenance and preventing failures.

Planned maintenance tasks are created in the Fracttal database per asset or asset type and then linked to various assets in the database. Once linked tasks can triggered to a desired schedule to generate Work Queues and eventually Work Orders.
