includes daily inspections, lubrications, and
adjustments necessary to ensure early detection
of malfunctions of CESE. Figures 2-11 and 2-12
show preventive maintenance forms that the
operator can use as guides for a daily prestart
defect or unsafe condition that needs to be
reported to the dispatcher immediately.
The second part of organizational main-
tenance is preventive maintenance, which goes
beyond the inspections, lubrications, and
adjustments of operator maintenance. Its prime
objective is to maximize equipment availability
and to minimize unnecessary repair costs.
Whenever feasible, operators should participate
in this type of maintenance.
Intermediate maintenance, which every shop
has the responsibility to perform, encompasses the
replacement, repair, alteration,
