To Create a Template


Inspection templates are divided up into three main sections:
Header:  Contains the assigned description of the Inspection, and the assigned Service Code.


Body:  This is the heart of the Inspection template.  The options for the person conducting the inspection are:

        To Do List: A list of tasks to be performed

        Failure Checklist:  Items to be marked if one is found to be deficient

        Pass / Fail:  Single standard per item.  It either passes or fails

        Photos:  Pictures of the working or damaged equipment

        Meter / Log Entry:  Record Mileage, Hours, Fuel, Temp., etc.

        Text Entry


Signature:  Final inspection verdict of:

        Safe/Unsafe

        Pass/Fail 

        Operable/Inoperable



Once the Inspection has been created, it can be made available for the recommended Assets, Asset categories, or Types of Assets.


The Service code can now be used in Maintenance Plans to embed the inspection into the PM or Work Order
