Operational conditions and production levels are maintained at consistently higher levels when a planned maintenance system is used. Initial operational expenses for a planned maintenance system exceed those of a policy of uncontrolled repairs, but the long-term savings are much greater. The objective of a maintenance system is primarily to give a total plan of requirements for maintenance work and equipment condition to reduce the time spent and the cost of unexpected repairs. An installed and properly entered maintenance system gives a description of a plant's maintenance level or technical condition of the utility. The TECAID program is an integrated system which gives the status of all maintenance work to be carried out. All events and important information obtained during plant operation will be used for the actual planned maintenance work. Start-up of the Tecaid planned maintenance system requires data entry of equipment inventory and descriptions, instructions for maintenance work and routines and procedures, spare parts inventory, modul numbers, capacities etc. The TECAID system renders excellent planning of maintenance and condition checks for all kind of components. Also built into the system is a module which rapidly takes care of the extra planning necessitated by unexpected downtime.
