The aim of an effective Maintenance System is to maximize production equipment effectiveness in terms of economic efficiency and profitability.

The most efficient way of achieving this goal is through proper maintenance scheduling and planning. 

Hand-on experience is crucial for performing successful maintenance. 

Yet, many new engineers lack the experience to successfully manage a program. 

This is why so many readers regard the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook as the chief authority for establishing effective maintenance planning and scheduling in the real world.
