When upgrading SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional from one release to another, the Task Add-in does not automatically get upgraded.
This Add-in should always be upgraded whenever you upgrade the PDM software.
Reactive organizations respond to failures, running from one breakdown to the next. It's not uncommon to find preventive maintenance procedures created as knee jerk reactions to failures.
Other than the OEM manual, often there is no basis for the work activities.
By knowing which equipment needs maintenance, maintenance work can be better planned (spare parts, people, etc.) and what would have been "unplanned stops" are transformed to shorter and fewer "planned stops", thus increasing plant availability.
Other potential advantages include increased equipment lifetime, increased plant safety, fewer accidents with negative impact on environment, and optimized spare parts handling.
In the Administration Console, click Open and browse to the installation directory for PDM Professional and into the “Default Data” folder.Predictive maintenance (Pd M) techniques are designed to help determine the condition of in-service equipment in order to predict when maintenance should be performed.This approach promises cost savings over routine or time-based preventive maintenance, because tasks are performed only when warranted.In the case here it is the “2014040916” version, which means the Add-in was for Enterprise PDM 2014 SP4.SOLIDWORKS 2016 SP3 has been recently installed, so the Add-in should be upgraded to match that version.Predictive maintenance differs from its cousin preventive maintenance because it relies on the actual condition of equipment, rather than average or expected life statistics, to predict when maintenance will be required.Pd M evaluates the condition of equipment by performing periodic or continuous (online) equipment condition monitoring.Many other grant programs are still accessible with an expired Plan.However, if project funding is needed and your Haz Mit Plan has expired, the Town can still apply for the project funds once the updated Plan has been approved by FEMA.The main promise of predictive maintenance is to allow convenient scheduling of corrective maintenance, and to prevent unexpected equipment failures.The key is "the right information in the right time".The CNHRPC has been developing and updating local Hazard Mitigation (Haz Mit) Plans for Central NH Region communities for 17 years and counting, from 2000-2016 and beyond.Every five (5) years, a community’s Haz Mit Plan must be updated to current Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) Region 1 Boston’s Plan review requirements, and reviewed/approved by NH Homeland Security and Emergency Management (NH HSEM) and FEMA.This ensures compatibility, and allows you access to any enhancements or fixes that have been added to the Task.
