Approach to Preventive Maintenance
APS researches OEM technical literature and other documentation such as industry standards and Government regulations to identify required or appropriate PM tasks and task frequencies. Based on our research and good engineering judgment, APS develops equipment-specific PM procedures that include:
Specific, clearly stated action steps for the performance of each PM task
Photographs and/or graphics showing key inspection or lubrication points
Information or data to be recorded during the performance of the PM
Appropriate warnings or cautions relating to specific equipment
Acceptance criteria and action to be taken upon out of specification results
Special tools and equipment needed for PM performance
Recommended frequency of the PM
