Abstract: In the past few decades, various maintenance policies with different operation principles, such as preventive or predictive maintenance were developed due to importance of maintenance in current industries. However, the implementation of a maintenance policy must suit the specific conditions and constraints of a specific company. Thus it is important to identify and then select the optimal maintenance policy for a system in order to gain maximum effectiveness. This paper reviews current research on selecting the optimal maintenance policy in various industries and recommendations for future research regarding new methods of selecting an optimal maintenance.

Keywords: maintenance policy selection; evaluation review; qualitative selection modelling; quantitative selection modelling; maintenance policies.
