Updating the Maintenance Log

Click image for a larger view

A few years back we posted the Excel-based spreadsheet we wrote for our maintenance log, along with instructions on how to use it. The spreadsheet has continued to serve us well, and still is our main tool for managing maintenance items. While it’s fairly easy to add new maintenance items for a given piece of machinery by copying and pasting an existing line, adding an entirely new piece of machinery to the spreadsheet is less intuitive.

For those who have additional pieces of machinery to track, such as a second generator, we’ve posted our most current version of the spreadsheet that has been updated to include four “other machinery” entries. You can customize the names and maintenance items to suit your purpose, or simply delete these lines if you don’t need them.
