Content reviews optimize preventive maintenance (PM) strategy. However, reanalyzing strategy alone is pointless. Traditional PM optimization compares existing and revised PM’s at the final step. Ignoring preexisting source PM programs removes analysis bias, but makes implementation more difficult; continuity is lost. Baselining existing programs provides an alternative. PM changes are smaller, easier to control, and process oriented. Ineffective PM tasks can be removed with minor impact. Shop-floor ownership simplifies changes and speeds implementation, lowering costs. New maintenance development techniques improve upon older PM development processes, substantially reducing costs. Significant benefits can result in complex industrial maintenance applications.
