Our understanding of a concept is sometimes determined by how it is presented to us. Based on this premise and knowing the daily reality of the maintenance area, Eng. João Nunes Marques, Consultant at ManWinWin Software, launched the article entitled “Brief approach to the relevance of standard definitions for maintenance types and strategies.”
The author notes that sometimes there are misinterpretations of the terms used by people from the maintenance area and stresses the need for all actors in this field to understand and apply standard terminology.
Based on the European Standard dealing with standard terminology in maintenance, the article presents a description of the concepts of preventive maintenance, predetermined maintenance, systematic maintenance, condition based maintenance and corrective maintenance.
