Abstract [en]

Today, many companies struggle with maintenance work established by pre-requisites during purchasing, installation and start-up of plants, systems and machines. In search for improvements in existing maintenance organizations, it´s easy to conclude that they look like and is a direct consequence of previous engineering decisions and activities.

   Maintenance is, however, performed in the operation phase with weak coupling to what created it. Using an empirical knowledge base, several examples of this narrow view on maintenance is given along with the consequences it results in today.

   It is argued, that the increasing need to create and preserve knowledge will be the driver for change and the main contribution to an enlarged and more efficient maintenance function. Improvements are pointed out using references to the leading actors creating the frontier today where most companies could be tomorrow. The paper hopefully will contribute to how maintenance processes and activities are being designed, set-up and carried out.
