My supervisor told me any of the employees in my facility are allowed to bypass any task on the PM (Preventative Maintenance) or eCBM (Electronic Condition Based Maintenance) on any machine and the supervisor told me the only ones allowed to bypass a route is District. But the real problem is SMO’s are signing off tasks on the eCBM that are past due with the excuses they are going to create a Work order. In other cases, SMO’s are forcing people to close tasks already past due.
Also, I heard from another facility that they are bypassing routes if it is past due. The MS-63 explains the procedure but my supervisor told me that we do not need to follow the MS-63 for that, only District can bypass tasks. Does anyone know what is the correct procedure of who are allowed to bypass tasks and if the Supervisors are allowed to sign off tasks and create work orders? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
