Checklist Task Creation Questions
Preventative Maintenance Checklists are important documents designed to prompt the user of the required tasks to address failure modes of complex systems.
Checklists are a list of tasks that are clear, succinct, in a logical order and contain only enough information to prompt the maintainers to carry out the respective tasks efficiently. They should not be confused or combined with work instructions, which are step-by-step guides on how to complete each task.
This checklist is simply something to prompt the creators of Preventative Maintenance Checklists into questioning every maintenance task purpose and if it needs to be added. It is not meant to be an exhaustive list or something users are expected to ask/answer all questions for every task, it is just a list to get that mind thinking critically about the purpose of each checklist task.
Enable checklist creators to consider the effectiveness of tasks to be included in Preventative Maintenance Checklists.
