Abstract: Nowadays, plant maintenance has gained significant recognition as a very important process, which can be transformed to a potential profit generator for the corporation. The development of a suitable maintenance concept enables the decision of specific maintenance strategies based on the existing situational factors that affect the organisation.

This paper proposes a maintenance system design framework and presents a successful implementation of the suggested design framework in a Greek manufacturing company.
