A maintenance schedule can be a great way to keep track of when work needs to be done in a particular setting. For example, you can use such a schedule to keep track of the routine maintenance for your car. Likewise, you can use a maintenance schedule to keep everyone up-to-date on what needs to be done at your place of work. All maintenance schedules will contain the same basic pieces of information.
Make a list of all the things that need to be accomplished. If your maintenance schedule is for your car, for example, write down things like "Change Oil" or "Rotate Tires." If your maintenance schedule is for your place of business, write down things like "Sweep Floors" or "Clean bathrooms." Write down all the maintenance-related items that need to be taken care of.
Write down the time-frame in which each item on your list needs to be completed. If your maintenance schedule is for your car, you can write down your time frames in the form of mileages. For example, next to "Change Oil" you could write down "80,000 miles" (if you last changed your oil around 77,000 miles). If your maintenance schedule is for your place of business, you could write down "Every Monday" or "Every Two weeks" next to certain items as necessary.
Write down the names of people who are going to be completing specific maintenance jobs (if applicable). If your maintenance schedule is for your car, this would be unnecessary, but if your schedule is for the workers at your business, assign people to each task by writing their names next to the job in question.
Leave a space to mark maintenance tasks that have been completed. If your schedule is for your car, for example, you could leave a space to make a check mark next to each job. If your schedule is for your employees, you could leave a space for each person to sign his name, indicating that they have been checking the schedule and completing their assignments.
