    Assets are added to the Asset Tab for the generation of Work Orders from a Preventive Maintenance Schedule. This tab is specifically designed for managing and organizing assets, allowing users to input relevant information and track the maintenance activities associated with each asset. By adding assets to this tab, users can easily generate work orders based on the preventive maintenance schedule, ensuring that maintenance tasks are carried out efficiently and effectively.

    If a Preventive Maintenance schedule is a Meter Based Schedule, the next area you will need to fill out after setting your PM to be Meter Based is:  

    • A.

      The date that the PM will generate

    • B.

      Next scheduled Meter interval

    • C.

      It will be blank

    • D.

      Both A and B

    Correct Answer
    B. Next scheduled Meter interval
    Explanation
    After setting the Preventive Maintenance (PM) schedule to be meter-based, the next area that needs to be filled out is the next scheduled meter interval. This is because a meter-based schedule relies on the usage of a meter to determine when maintenance should be performed. Therefore, it is important to specify the next scheduled meter interval to ensure that the maintenance is carried out at the appropriate time based on the meter readings.

    The Repair Center filter on the PM Assets Tab is used to filter assets by the repair center specified on the PM Asset record.

It is important to note that using this filter is recommended for efficient asset management.

    When adding an Asset to the Asset Tab on a PM, the Asset/Location Popup window will display many organizational attributes which will be used in the PM for Work Order generation - unless?

    • A.

      They are blank

    • B.

      The data is bad

    • C.

      The PM doesn’t feel like using them

    • D.

      The Use Asset Defaults was selected for the PM

    Correct Answer
    D. The Use Asset Defaults was selected for the PM
    Explanation
    If the "Use Asset Defaults" option is selected for the PM, then the organizational attributes displayed in the Asset/Location Popup window will not be used in the PM for Work Order generation. This means that the PM will not consider these attributes and will instead use the default settings or values associated with the asset.

  • 7. 

    The Next Procedure column is most useful when the Preventive Maintenance schedule has multiple Procedures.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Next Procedure column is most useful when the Preventive Maintenance schedule has multiple Procedures because it allows for easy tracking and organization of the sequential steps that need to be followed. This column helps ensure that each procedure is completed in the correct order and that no steps are missed. It provides a clear roadmap for technicians to follow and helps to streamline the maintenance process. Without the Next Procedure column, it would be more difficult to keep track of the order in which procedures need to be performed, leading to potential errors or inefficiencies.

    When using the Use Asset Defaults option on the Asset tab of a PM, which fields are available to check off to use during generation? (Select all that apply)

    • A.

      Repair Center

    • B.

      Department

    • C.

      Customer

    • E.

      Account

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Repair Center
    B. Department
    C. Customer
    E. Account
    Explanation
    When using the Use Asset Defaults option on the Asset tab of a PM, the fields available to check off to use during generation are Repair Center, Department, Customer, and Account. This means that the default values for these fields will be used when generating the PM, ensuring consistency and accuracy in the generated work orders. Meter Readings is not available to check off in this case, as it is not relevant to the generation of the PM.
