8. Preventive Action Optimization

Over time, added tasks begin to detract from the original reason the PA program was originally deployed. Conversely, most PA programs aren’t updated to effectively address or mitigate the degradation of a system and its components. PA programs should be periodically reviewed based on failure history and performance analysis. PA Optimization is the systematic review of preventative maintenance activities. Their purpose is to eliminate tasks that fail to add value or may induce problems. Additionally, they reduce the ambiguity of maintenance tasks that are not clearly written, avoid or eliminate redundant PM and condition-based maintenance tasks. They also make a PAO a living program, update as needed and allow the refocusing of constrained resources toward effective failure prevention maintenance activities.
