This function is used to set up the intervals when scheduling tasks. This could be Calendar, meter or both depending on the type of object. This form is used to define the interval/s for programmable events. Multiple intervals may be defined per event. The forecasting function will forecast a planned occurrence for the unit of measure that will cause the earliest occurrence. Maintenance events are performed according to prescribed criteria at pre-determined intervals.

Field description

UOM

Select from the lookup list the type of Unit of Measure. Available values are METER, CALENDAR and QUANTITY.

UOM code

The unit of measure for the interval of the event must be selected from the lookup. Note: that only UOM defined as ageing unit of measures for the selected object type will be available for selection.

Setup

Firm interval

Indicates the firm interval between two events expressed in terms of the selected UOM. This frequency is used where the events that are scheduled will be used in the scheduled maintenance of the object. i.e. Scheduled events based on the prescribed frequency of the event on the object.

Budget interval

Indicates the budgeted interval between two events expressed in terms of the selected UOM. This frequency is used where the events that are scheduled will be used in the budgeted maintenance of the object only, i.e. ad-hoc events (predicted failures), based on the MTBF (Mean-Time Between Failures) of the object.

First occurrence

The first meter reading on which the event must occur. If left 0 the first occurrence of the event will be forecast as the interval defined for the event.

Final occurrence

The final meter reading for a programmable event. This field should be left blank if the event must be scheduled indefinitely. If a value is supplied, the event will be scheduled up to the value supplied and never again.

Positive latitude

The positive latitude defines the number of units for which the event may be legally performed earlier than planned.

Negative latitude

The negative latitude defines the number of units for which the event may be legally performed later than planned.

Expected life extension value

The field defines the value by how much the expected life will be extended with. It is calculated by adding this value to the current age.

Exceptions

Sequence

The sequence number is used to determine the sequence order in which exception rules will be applied.

Exception type

Indicates the type of exception. Select from the available options the exception type that will be applicable for this object.

Utilisation condition code

Different utilisation conditions has to be set up as exceptions. For example if an object (vehicle) will be used at coastal conditions that can have an effect on the service intervals, then for those periods the exception rule will apply.

Allocated to org

If exception rules apply for an object allocated to a specific organisation, then the rule will be set up to apply when the object is used by the selected organisation.

Allocated to structure code

This field will be automatically defaulted from the allocated organisation.

Customer

If exception rules apply for an object used by a specific customer, then the rule will be set up to apply when the object is used by the selected customer.

Budget interval

Indicates the budgeted interval between two events expressed in terms of the selected UOM. This frequency is used where the events that are scheduled will be used in the budgeted maintenance of the object only, i.e. adhoc events (predicted failures), based on the MTBF (Mean-Time Between Failures) of the object.

Firm interval

Indicates the firm interval between two events expressed in terms of the selected UOM. This frequency is used where the events that are scheduled will be used in the scheduled maintenance of the object. i.e. Scheduled events based on the prescribed frequency of the event on the object.

First occurrence

The first meter reading on which the event must occur. If left 0 the first occurrence of the event will be forecast as the interval defined for the event.

Final occurrence

The final meter reading for a programmable event. This field should be left blank if the event must be scheduled indefinitely. If a value is supplied, the event will be scheduled up to the value supplied and never again.

Preference

The field will defines a preference for the exception rule, and is used to identify smallest values most preferred.
