A preventive maintenance program combined with good operational practices will reduce the need for much of the corrective or emergency maintenance. A good preventive maintenance program will service not only mechanical and electrical equipment, but also the distribution and collection systems, grounds and buildings. Maintenance includes all functions required to keep a facility operating in accordance with its original design capacities and performance. This includes repairs to broken, damaged, or worn-out equipment (emergency maintenance), and the periodic replacement of equipment and facilities that have reached the end of their design life (corrective or replacement maintenance). Maintenance Program Elements A comprehensive preventive maintenance program will have the following components: Equipment and component inventory Manufacturer’s literature Preventive maintenance task list Records of maintenance performed Technical resources Tools and equipment Spare parts inventory Personnel training Budgeting Scheduling and monitoring Recordkeeping Equipment and Component Inventory The backbone of any preventive maintenance program is a comprehensive listing or inventory of all system components and equipment. This listing should include a name and code number to every part of the system. Manufacturer’s Literature For each piece of equipment or component identified in the inventory, the manufacturer’s literature should be obtained and compiled. For a new or upgraded facility, it is often the contractor’s responsibility to provide manufacturer’s information for all installed equipment. Preventive Maintenance Task List Once all of the equipment and components have been itemized and the manufacturer’s literature has been collected, it is time to develop the comprehensive list of preventive maintenance tasks and to schedule them. Working systematically through each component of the facility, and remembering to address additional areas such as building and grounds maintenance, all preventive maintenance tasks must be identified and a frequency for scheduling should be assigned.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
