Preventive maintenance is triggered by time, events, or meter readings. For example, changing lube oil every 6 months, changing the lube oil filter every 12 months, etc. A predictive task is a task to measure equipment condition. Predictive maintenance is based on the actual condition of the equipment rather than on time or age factors. It is used to predict machine failures before they occur, and also gives company enough time to schedule a future service appointment in advance, For example, vibration measurement every 3 months for a centrifugal pump or wall thickness measurement for a tank or pressure vessel using NDT tools named UT. Function test is a task to prove or to make sure that any system is functioning properly. for example, a function test of High-level alarm and switch in a tank.[…]
