How to Create Preventive Maintenance Plan (Routes) in AR PM

A Preventive Maintenance Plan (or we call it as Route here) is a program that consists a list of Items that need to be inspected in a specific order, by a chosen Inspector, at a predefined time. Once inspected, each route will help you maintaining accurate records of every inspection Checklist, as well as knowing the lifespan of each part to understand the replacement frequency.
