Once the maintenance task(s) is set up, it can be added to the machine category. By selecting the Insert in Machines checkbox, the maintenance plans are populated for all the machines that are related to the machine category when the insert maintenances process is executed. When the checkbox is not selected, a single maintenance plan for the machine category is created.
By selecting the checkbox, the maintenance plans for the machines are created, but the maintenance information is not added to the maintenance tab of each machine. That tab is used to document any maintenance that is not related to the machine category, but only to that particular machine.
- Maintenance Type: to indicate the nature of the maintenance:
