As discussed earlier, predictive maintenance provides a good buffer activity in service work, since time within a few days is not normally critical. The NUCREC priority system helps ensure that the most important items are done first. Some pressure will be encountered from production people who want a particular work request filled right away instead of at the proper time in the priority sequence.

Repair/Recal. 4 A typical calibration card. should maintain a two-way check on calibration. A simple means of doing this is to have a small form for each instrument with a calendar of weeks or months (depending on the interval required) across the top that can be punched and noted to indicate the calibration due date. 4. If the forms are sorted every month, the cards for each instrument that should be recalled for check or calibration can easily be pulled out.

Blindly assuming that the future will be like the past, or even that the past was done perfectly, may be an error. Comparisons should certainly be made between different individuals doing the same tasks to evaluate results in the amount of time required, what was accomplished during that time, quality of workmanship, and equipment performance as a result of their efforts. Some people will argue that setting time standards for preventive maintenance is counterproductive. They feel that the mechanic should be given as much time as he desires to ensure high-quality work.
