The critical factor in oil analysis is the interpretation of the oil analysis results. A diagnostician interprets the oil test results and produces a concise summary of the equipment, and oil condition.

Diagnosticians draw from many sources to produce a valid interpretation of oil analysis results, including OEM wear limits, oil baselines and typicals, industry literature, but most importantly a diagnostician draws upon their experience and mechanical expertise to correctly interpret test results into a correct picture of equipment condition.

The oil analysis interpretation includes a discussion of the equipment wear state, level of oil contamination, and oil condition and includes a recommendation outlining any corrective maintenance actions that are necessary.
