Maintenance Logs

Maintenance manuals (hard copy) or maintenance logs (soft, electronically retained) contain checklists of routine maintenance procedures and service intervals. Built in to the checklists is a log that is usually retained in the vehicle electronics and can be downloaded to land-base tracking and analysis software. Maintenance logs are important resources for preventive maintenance (PM) service technicians because they contain information on OEM-required lubrication procedures and charts, service intervals, fluid capacities, specifications, adjustment procedures, checking fasteners, and torque specification charts.
