Heavy Equipment maintenance, especially trailer, in the mining world requires careful preparation, from planning process, data readiness and analysis, maintenance execution, until maintenance costs allocation. Every preparation process is demanded to be done well to achieve "Excellent Maintenance". To reduce cost and duration of maintenance due to unpredictable failures of equipment, the Periodical Inspection (PI) process needs to be carried out. PI aims to capture the symptoms of equipment damage that used as a backlog recommendation, the equipment will be fixed when Scheduled Maintenance according to the plan that was made before more severe damage occurs. To help the mechanics in the backlog analysis and recommendations, supporting data is needed in the form of equipment damage records in the past. Using the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) method, data will be presented by processing of image number on the equipment and will be displayed on the monitor with a visual basic interface. The data displayed is sourced from the Breakdown Unschedule database of unit trailers that have occurred during the unit's operation. The results of success rate are 84% for standard font type, 42% for not standard font type, and 67% for real equipment number.
