    Correct Answer
    C. Any scheduled activity requiring Work Orders
    Explanation
    Preventive Maintenance can be used for any scheduled activity requiring Work Orders. This means that preventive maintenance can be implemented for tasks that are planned and scheduled in advance, and require work orders to be generated. This ensures that regular maintenance activities are carried out on equipment, machinery, or systems to prevent breakdowns, reduce downtime, and extend their lifespan. By scheduling and performing preventive maintenance tasks as part of work orders, organizations can proactively address potential issues and maintain the efficiency and reliability of their assets.

    A. Yearly
    B. Fixed
    C. Every Two Months
    Explanation
    The schedule options for a PM include yearly, fixed, and every two months. Yearly scheduling implies that the project will be planned and executed once a year, while fixed scheduling means that the project follows a predetermined schedule without any flexibility. Every two months scheduling suggests that the project will be repeated every two months, allowing for regular updates and adjustments. Random scheduling is not mentioned as a valid option.

    Which PM Tab is used to add Tasks, Classifications and Costs to the PM?

    • A.

      Asset Tab

    • B.

      Procedure Tab

    • C.

      Automation Tab

    • D.

      None of the Above

    Correct Answer
    B. Procedure Tab
    Explanation
    The Procedure Tab is used to add Tasks, Classifications, and Costs to the PM. This tab allows users to define the specific steps and procedures that need to be followed for a particular project or task. It provides a structured framework for organizing and managing the project by breaking it down into smaller, manageable tasks. Additionally, the Procedure Tab allows users to assign classifications and costs to each task, providing a comprehensive overview of the project's scope and budget.

  • 4. 

    A Preventive Maintenance schedule can be defined as scheduled or planned work based on a given amount of time or usage. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A preventive maintenance schedule involves scheduling or planning maintenance work based on a specific amount of time or usage. This means that maintenance activities are performed regularly to prevent equipment or systems from breaking down or experiencing problems. By following a preventive maintenance schedule, potential issues can be identified and addressed before they escalate, leading to improved reliability, efficiency, and longevity of equipment. Therefore, the statement "A Preventive Maintenance schedule can be defined as scheduled or planned work based on a given amount of time or usage" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    A Procedure will populate which fields with pre-defined data onto Work Orders?

    • A.

      Details, Estimated Costs, Tasks, Photos

    • B.

      Details, Actual Costs, Indicators, Photo, Authorization

    • C.

      Estimated Costs, Indicators, Photo, Library, Priority

    • D.

      Procedures do not populate fields onto Work Orders - trick question!

    Correct Answer
    A. Details, Estimated Costs, Tasks, Photos
    Explanation
    Procedures are used to provide step-by-step instructions for completing work orders. In this case, the correct answer is "Details, Estimated Costs, Tasks, Photos" because these are the fields that will be populated with pre-defined data onto the work orders. This means that when a procedure is applied to a work order, the details, estimated costs, tasks, and photos will already be filled in with pre-defined information, making it easier for the person completing the work order to follow the instructions and complete the task accurately.

    To help improve efficiency and eliminate “time out” errors encountered when processing large batch PM generations, it is recommended to use which preference?

    • A.

      Use Priority Rules for PMs

    • B.

      Generate Work Orders in the Background

    • C.

      Improve Efficiency Preference

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Generate Work Orders in the Background
    Explanation
    To improve efficiency and eliminate "time out" errors when processing large batch PM generations, it is recommended to generate work orders in the background. This means that the work orders will be generated without interrupting or slowing down the current processing. This allows for a smoother and more efficient workflow, as the system can continue to process other tasks while generating work orders in the background. Using priority rules for PMs and improving efficiency preference may also contribute to improving efficiency, but the most effective solution in this case is generating work orders in the background.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Attachments stored on a PM will not populate automatically onto Work Orders.

  • 8. 

    What are the two general types of schedules available for a Preventive Maintenance Schedule? (Select all that apply)

    • A.

      Fixed Schedule

    • B.

      Fluctuating Schedule

    • C.

      Permanent Schedule

    • D.

      Floating Schedule

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Fixed Schedule
    D. Floating Schedule
    Explanation
    The two general types of schedules available for a Preventive Maintenance Schedule are fixed schedule and floating schedule. A fixed schedule is a predetermined maintenance plan that follows a set timeline, while a floating schedule allows for flexibility and adjusts maintenance activities based on the condition of the equipment or facility. These two types of schedules provide different approaches to managing preventive maintenance and cater to different needs and circumstances.

    If a PM has Assets added that are currently not in-service, but continue to have Work Orders generated for them, what would be the best way to handle? 

    • A.

      Remove Assets from PM and re-add when active

    • B.

      Utilize Preference to suppress PM generation

    • C.

      Delete the PM

    • D.

      There is no way to stop this generation

    Correct Answer
    B. Utilize Preference to suppress PM generation
    Explanation
    The best way to handle the situation where assets are added to a PM but are not currently in service, but work orders are still being generated for them, is to utilize the preference to suppress PM generation. This means that the PM will not be generated for those specific assets until they are active again. This allows for better management of the PM schedule and prevents unnecessary work orders from being generated for assets that are not in use.
