How does an inspection relate to an asset?

Asset inspections can be for preventative maintenance, recurring inspections, one-off checks on the asset, or to gather other information related to the asset.

An asset inspection is conducted using a checklist, which is a form that contains questions to be answered. The checklists are fully customizable via the SBN web portal so administrators can create any checklists they like or modify existing checklists to meet their needs.

Inspections can be scheduled to run at a desired frequency with automatic notifications being sent out when an inspection is due for a particular asset. Alternately, inspections can be completed on demand if there is a particular set of information to be captured.

Any issues uncovered during the inspection process can have an exception created which will track the issue on a separate list for follow-up. Exceptions are sometimes referred to as corrective actions, work orders, or remediation actions in other systems. See further discussion on exceptions here.
