Maintenance frequency with varaible factors

Hi Experts,

    I'm wondering for the solution of a scenario, where we have few Motors, which can be used in two different situations.

1. At full peak load -- > When demand is high the motor runs at full load capacity and during this Preventive maintenance is required after 15 days

2. At partial load -- > During off peak season, based on load the speed can be controlled by drive and motor runs at partial load capacity. during this Prev. Maint. is required after 45 Days.

Any idea , how the maintenance plans can be mapped in this scenario ? I was planning to map it via Multiple counter . One for peak and another for off peak. But don't know how to create order one at a time. How to get system know, when the motor is running on Partial and when on full load.

Do i need to make some custom development for this??

Similarly, there's a case of pipeline, where sometimes the Water flows (Maintenance freq= 3 month) while sometime Acid flows through the same pipe (Maintenance Freq= 15 Days). How to get the plan map for this ??

Please provide some inputs ..

    Hello Dennis,

    On your behalf, I will try to make it clear that in both cases, the regulation (peak / off peak loads) is not manual, but is automatic depending upon the demand, sensed through devices like sensors. If this statement is true, confirm. If it is not, and the regulation is manual, then clarify what is the cycle period of these manual settings. Means how many days continuously in peak setting and off-peak setting?

    With the above info, probability for better replies would increase.

    Hii Dennis,

    Just a thought dont know whether it will be feasible or useful in this case...

    Plan counter based preventive maintenance on the production/process order quantity.

    During peak period order quantity will be more as compared to off peak period order quantity.

    And after confirmation of order a Preventive maintenance order should be created.

    The above scenario suits perfectly in case of PRT equipments, hope this can give some solution or a point to think this way.
