4 Optimization of PM Intervals Experience in a variety of industries demonstrates that performing PM on an absolutely fixed schedule rarely results in the optimum balance among the costs of preventive and corrective maintenance and the safety and productivity benefits of equipment reliability and availability. indd 14 11/17/2008 12:17:15 PM Maintenance Strategies, Dielectric Theory 15 historical failure and maintenance database, reasonably straightforward methods can be used to optimize the PM cycle.

The purpose of an electrical preventive maintenance (EPM) and testing program should be to recognize these factors and provide means for correcting them. With an EPM and testing program, potential hazards that can cause failure of equipment or interruption of electrical service can be discovered and corrected. Also, the EPM program will minimize the hazards to life and equipment that can result from failure of equipment when it is not properly maintained. Properly maintained equipment reduces downtime by minimizing catastrophic failures.
