    Abstract

    Maintenance is an essential part of successful operation of all modern industrial systems and an important activity to keep up and improve their dependability. Establishing a proper maintenance programme requires a systematic approach to ensure that the resulting programme fulfills the demands placed on maintenance. The selected maintenance tasks should be effective against the identified fault modes and failure mechanisms. Methods for estimating the cost-effectiveness of maintenance tasks are needed and one practical approach is proposed in this paper.
