The COGZ Fleet Maintenance Software Meter menu provides access to procedures that allow you to collect and update equipment meter readings, which are used in the creation of PM Work Orders.
The Equipment Meter Reading Report is printed for equipment that is in service and has a Last Reading entry in the Fleet Maintenance Software Equipment Form.
This listing is used to manually record meter readings as they are taken. After meters have been read, this data is entered in the Enter Meter Readings section. These readings are used to schedule PM's.
The Equipment Meter Entry Form allows you to enter the meter readings you have recorded on the equipment meter reading report. These readings are used to schedule PM's.
Equipment No: The Equipment Number to update.
Reading Date: The date that the readings were taken. This will default to today's date.
Current Hours: Enter the meter reading of the piece of equipment. The previous reading will be displayed until you override it.
Current Miles: Enter the mileage reading of the piece of equipment. The previous reading will be displayed until you override it.
