    Correct Answer
    A. If the PM to be cloned fits your companies practices and needs for the new PM which is needed.
    Explanation
    The key factor in deciding whether to create a brand new Preventive Maintenance schedule or clone an existing schedule is if the PM to be cloned fits your company's practices and needs for the new PM which is needed. This means that if the existing schedule aligns with the requirements and standards of the company, it can be cloned instead of creating a new one from scratch. This ensures that the new PM schedule will be effective and suitable for the company's specific needs.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    A preventive maintenance schedule requires key pieces such as details, schedule, and assets. Details refer to specific information about the maintenance task, including the equipment or system involved, the maintenance procedure, and any necessary documentation. Schedule refers to the planned timing and frequency of the maintenance activities. Assets refer to the equipment or systems that require maintenance.

    By adding Assets to the Assets tab of a PM you are able to generate work orders on an automatic, time scheduled basis.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    By adding assets to the Assets tab of a PM (preventive maintenance) system, it allows for the generation of work orders automatically and on a scheduled basis. This means that the system will automatically create work orders for maintenance tasks based on predetermined time intervals or schedules. This automation helps to streamline the maintenance process and ensures that tasks are consistently performed at the appropriate times, reducing the risk of equipment failure or downtime.

This flexibility allows project managers to adapt to changing circumstances and prioritize tasks accordingly.

    In an example where a Monthly PM needs to be set up to generate a different Procedure after every quarter), how would the Interval be set up for each Procedure? 

    • A.

      Bi-Monthly is Interval “2”, Annual is Interval “9”

    The correct answer is "Monthly is Interval '1', Quarterly is Interval '3'". This means that for the Monthly PM, the interval is set to 1, indicating that it should occur every month. For the different Procedure after every quarter, the interval is set to 3, indicating that it should occur every 3 months or quarterly. This setup ensures that the Monthly PM and the different Procedure are scheduled at the appropriate intervals.
