For critical equipment, consider implementing a Predictive Maintenance (PdM) update protocol. The way it works is this:
- While the repair team is gathering parts and engaging in other mobilization to perform the repair, another team performs as much PdM as conditions permit. This gives you the “before” picture, which may be useful for failure cause analysis under less stressful conditions.
- Once the repair is complete, the PdM team performs all PdM that can
