Every periodic Job linked to a Component has a periodic frequency, either in weeks/months or a Working Hours counter, attachted to it. For instance, if a job is to be carried out every 4000 hours. Amos starts counting the Hours as soon as you Report that the Particular job is done, When the 4000 Hours approaches, this Job comes up when you Print Work Orders due for the coming period. Amos counts time by itself but it also requires that the Component Running Hours are updates on a regular basis. 3.2.0 Updating Counters Click on Maintenance/Counters/Update The following Filter Window is displayed.

Maintenance

All Maintenance on board can be categorized as Planned Maintenance, Unexpected Maintenance and Unplanned Maintenance. a) Planned Maintenance All the Periodic Jobs, which are to be done on the Components at a pre-defined Periodic frequency, come under this category. b) Unexpected Maintenance Breakdown jobs that are normally part of Planned Maintenance and for which a Work Order Exists (but with a Due Date in the future), fall in this category. For instance, a breakdown of a Main Sea Water Pump needs the pump to be overhauled. A Work order already exists for the Overhaul Job as part of the planned Maintenance, although the Due Date may be in the Future. c) Unplanned Maintenance Any maintenance that is not part of a Planned routine and for which no Work order exists, falls in to this category. For instance, a leaking sea water pipe needs to be repaired. No work Order exists for such a Job. Also there is no frequency for such jobs. This job can be categorized as Unplanned Maintenance. 3.3.1 Planned Maintenance 3.3.1.1 Viewing Work Orders In the Menu click Maintenance/Work Orders The following Filter is displayed.
