Notification Types and Guidelines

• N1 – Maintenance Request: This notification is created in response to a perceived need


for improvement in relation to reliability, safety, environmental protection, etc. The
distinguishing criterion that leads the user to pick this type of notification is that it
should relate exclusively to work or potential work that is discretionary (ex. Projects,
drawing revisions, technical evaluations, etc.).

• N2 – Malfunction Report: This notification is created to report failures or potential


failures that require corrective action of some kind. The distinguishing criterion that
leads the user to pick this type of notification is that the technical object is operating
outside its design parameters (performance) or exhibiting mechanical problems, and
maintenance work is required to restore the object to its minimum operating conditions.

 
• N3 – Activity Report: This notification is created when there is a need to record a
situation that existed or something that was done to a technical object and no
maintenance order applies, or the situation was corrected while performing a PM/PdM
order. The user picks this type of notification if the situation does not exist anymore, or
the work is already completed and time and cost are recorded on some outstanding or
PMPD work order.

• N4 – Operation Log: This notification is created to record activities performed by


manufacturing or utilities personnel (for example, minor maintenance repairs such as
adjustments, tightening of bolts, topping of lubricants, etc.).

• N5 – Calibration Notification: This notification is created in response to failures or


potential failures about instruments that require corrective action of some kind. The
distinguishing criterion that leads the users to pick this type of notification is that the
technical object (Instrumentation) is operating outside its design parameters or
exhibiting performance problems and maintenance work is required to restore the object
to its minimum operating conditions.
