Preventive Maintenance (PM) Procedure Development

APS creates equipment-specific PM procedures to improve the reliability and life expectancy of equipment and efficiency of your processes.

APS will design and develop preventive maintenance procedures that meet the needs of your industry and your maintenance personnel. Our PMs are clearly written and illustrated to ensure accuracy and consistency of PM task performance. APS can also assist with the development of an overall facility PM program and implementation schedule.

APS develops cost-effective preventive maintenance programs and procedures that:

  • Prolong equipment life

  • Increase system and equipment reliability and availability

  • Reduce spare parts inventory requirements

  • Improve personnel and environmental safety

Most of our technical personnel have over 20 years of direct, hands-on experience with the operations, maintenance and management of process and manufacturing systems and equipment. APS brings this level of experience and expertise along with creativity, imagination and responsiveness to every project.

APSí 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

  • References to applicable PM source materials
