Home Page --> Maintenance
This page is composed of many tiles that connect the user to various other tasks or services.
The quantity of tiles on each page is dependent on the user's permission level.
Terminology used in Easy PMS Mobile can be summed in the following statements:
A Schedule is the pre-determined interval between when a Task is to be carried out on an Item. A Schedule can be either a fixed date (expiry date) or one or any combination of counters, fuel consumption or calendar days. (Equipment schedule intervals are normally specified by the equipment manufacturer)
A Work Order is raised to complete a Task associated with a specific Item (Maintenance Item). When the Task is completed and recorded, the Schedule timekeeper/counter of the Item is reset.
Counters are used for recording running hours, fuel consumption or repetitive tasks (e.g. back-flushes, engine starts)
Depending on the viewing device used, the information is displayed either in a tile or tabular format.
In the following, tapping a tile is synonymous with left-clicking of the mouse in a selected row when in a tabular format.
