Scheduled Maintenance is any kind of preprogrammed activities which refer to planned testing, regular inspections, services and periodic minor repairing of an object or unit of equipment. It is a level of maintenance that is dictated by technological requirements inbuilt into a product or object (whether it is a car, house, computer, or anything else), so if you want to have this thing functioning well (to maintain it in good working condition) you need a qualified specialist to complete periodic inspections and perform service activities. As a rule, every product requires certain minor checks or service efforts that can be completed by a client himself (unskilled maintenance).
Facts about scheduled maintenance:
- Scheduled maintenance is often sold together with a product you buy (it is called a guarantee maintenance, after-sales service, etc), so specialists of this company provide you with all the necessary services according to a schedule agreed with you (installation, starting up, etc).
- Organizations that complete certain projects usually offer their clients a package of scheduled maintenance to make sure the products of their work will work just fine and will be correctly serviced (scope of these service activities is always considered in the project’s contract).
