Servicing strategy plays a significant role in avoiding any possible premature machinery failure which could cause major loss of money and human life. However, the present maintenance servicing strategy of today's industry still very much depending on individual experience and traditional monitoring approach always leads to problems, including high frequent failure of machinery, high maintenance expenses and long service cycle. Hence, it is very important to predict the service time and remind the technical personal its time to perform the scheduled service for the machine. In order to increase the flexibility and effectiveness of service reminding in today’s industry,it is here proposed a remote sensing programmable automatic service time reminder (PAST R) by employing a microcontroller to accurately alert the user via few stages alert system to perform the service as scheduled for respective machines or machine tools. The results of the present investigation show the newly engineered system is very much efficient to minimize not only the down time of the production floor, but also the man-hours to attend the maintenance problems.
