Planned Maintenance

What is planned maintenance?

Planned Preventive Maintenance or more usual just simple Planned Maintenance or Scheduled Maintenance is any variety of scheduled maintenance to an object or item of equipment. Specifically, Planned Maintenance is a scheduled service visit to ensure that an item of equipment is operating correctly and to therefore avoid any unscheduled breakdown and downtime.

Together with Condition Based Maintenance, Planned maintenance comprises preventive maintenance, in which the maintenance task is pre-planned, and all future maintenance is pre-programmed. Planned maintenance is created for every item separately according to manufacturers recommendation or legislation.

Plan can be based on equipment running hours, date based, or for vehicles distance travelled. A good example of a planned maintenance program is car maintenance, where time and distance determine fluid change requirements. A good example of Condition Based Maintenance is the oil pressure warning light that provides notification that you should stop the vehicle because failure will occur because engine lubrication has stopped.
