Maintenance Log

The Maintenance Log shows a list of assets available for creating maintenance events in a new work order.

Maintenance log 1Maintenance Log screen

Users can search an asset by the following categories:

  • Asset ID
  • Asset Category
  • Manufacturer
  • Business Unit
  • Area

There are three checkboxes to filter search results:

  • Hide Inactive assets – Display only information about active asset items.
  • Top Level only – Show only Asset Categories marked “Top Level”.
  • Show only Assets with Scheduled Maintenance – Hide all asset items except those scheduled for maintenance.

The list records:

  • Top Parent ID and Top Parent Name (if the asset is part of an asset kit and is not top level).
  • Asset ID and Asset Name.
  • Parent Category (if one exists).
  • Asset Category
  • Percent Due (the ratio of asset use to a target value, based on when the asset should next undergo maintenance).
  • Description of the maintenance that was made and is scheduled to be done.
  • Estimated Date that the next predicted maintenance should occur.
  • Value Type recorded for each particular asset (see “Asset Activities“)
  • Last Value recorded (from the previously-defined Value Type) and Target Value (for when the asset should next be seen for maintenance).
  • Last Service Date and Last Service Value (record of the last time the asset was maintained).
  • Number of the Job the asset is currently on, if any.
  • Business Unit and Area associated with the asset.
  • Status of the asset.
