With this function we will understand that an event template determines the basic composition for a maintenance task to be performed on object/equipment and contains information about required resources, activities and organisations that can perform the task. Once established, the template can be used instead of the registration of every single task as and when required.

The source for an event template can be documentation such as maintenance manuals, technical instructions, service bulletins, modification, etc. Standard Maintenance Tasks must be defined for every event template. These defined tasks are used as standard templates to facilitate uniform tasks execution and task history analysis. It is also a means to do life cycle planning. An event can in principle be anything that occurs in an organisation. There can be operational as well as maintenance events.

Every event can consist of a number of activities, and an event activity is an action to be performed by a person and this form will be used to create events when characteristics type is Execution Action. Example of event activities involved the service of a vehicle:

  • Replace plugs
  • Change oil
  • Check brakes/clutch
  • Check/replace filters

Legislation in many instances is the driver of activities as the organisation must endure certain safety and quality steps have been performed. Legislation may further require that an independent person has to inspect and certify that the event has been executed in accordance with prescribed standards. Another instance is where your organisation has to be audited and certified by the client to work in accordance with certain international recognised standards e.g. ISO 9000 before an order is placed. The certification requirements of the organization or a person can be linked to the event to ensure safety and quality rule.

Use this form to create/maintain event actions when the characteristic is of type Execution Action.
