In capital-intensive industries, the management and optimization of the work in daily maintenance and turnaround maintenance is a significant area requiring attention. Especially the increasing collaboration with external companies call for better understanding on how information should be exploited in daily maintenance management and in shutdown planning, and what challenges the companies encounter. In this paper, we propose a framework for data-driven maintenance planning and problem solving, and integrate reliability and maintenance management processes in this framework. We also apply the framework to practical examples and illustrate the benefits expected to arise from using the proposed framework in empirical case studies. The concept of a maintenance community as a form of advanced collaboration sets a reference for current practices. Exchange of information and collaborative processes are in the core of such communities.
