Maintenance is the art of optimising the available resources of manpower, materials, tools, and test equipment, within a set of constraints, to help achieve the goals and objectives of an organisation. Whether the goal is to produce and sell a product at a profit or is simply to perform a mission in a cost-effective manner, the maintenance principles described in this text apply equally to any type of organisation. In consonance with the growth of industry and its modernisation and the need to minimise the downtime of machinery and equipment, the engineering education system has included maintenance engineering as a part of its curriculum. The present text introduces the basics of this expanding subject to the undergraduate students of engineering and provides them with a broad view of management aspects as well. The book contains twenty chapters encompassing the types of maintenance systems, evaluation of maintenance functions, maintenance planning and control, the requirements of maintainability and reliability, economic and safely aspects of maintenance as well as manpower planning for maintenance management. Presented in a readable style, the book brings together the numerous aspects of maintenance functions emphasising the importance of this discipline in the engineering education.
