Introduction about Maintenance Register: The Maintenance planning process consists of several functions. The process entails the creation or request for a task to be executed, the planning thereof, the allocation and execution of the task and the feedback of all relevant data. Maintenance Work Orders can originate from two sources:

  • Adhoc: An Adhoc Work Order refers to a work order that is created as a result of an unforeseen maintenance task having to be performed. In spite of the initiation of the work being Adhoc (not foreseen), it does not mean that the work has not been pre-planned - Event templates can have been created for the work.
  • Planned: Equipment manufacturers prescribe maintenance events to prevent incipient failures before they occur or before they develop into major failure. These Work Orders will all be transferred from the Forecast Maintenance Schedule.

These forms allow you to manage Work-in-Progress (WIP). All uncompleted tasks in WIP are visible and color coded according to status of the task (based on your choice of color codes – see Status Codes). Resources can be maintained – added or deleted, quantities changed, and specific resource allocation can be done. Work orders can be released for work completion and detail data capture of feedback for each Work order and task is available. Not all object types can be linked to the maintenance work order, therefore if you select the specific, and cannot see all the specifics that were created it means that certain specifics are not available on maintenance work orders, for example personnel, organisation and location.
