The activities involved in creating an Effective Maintenance system can be broadly divided into the following two categories:

(1) Working with Autonomous Maintenance to develop strategies for reducing the frequency of failures while preventing their recurrence, at the same time as establishing preventive maintenance based on a maintenance calendar.
(2) Strengthening and enhancing various maintenance management activities in order to support the preventive maintenance system.

Building an Effective Maintenance System

→Begin by working with Autonomous Maintenance to carry out a comprehensive program of activities designed to reduce failures
→Continue these activities while introducing failure analysis and taking action to prevent the same type of failure from repeating itself
→Once random failures are less frequent and resources are not so strained, introduce preventive maintenance, starting with the highest-priority equipment
→Keep progressing from time-based maintenance towards condition-based maintenance
