    The challenge for maintenance planning is to identify appropriate objects and tasks for preventive maintenance and ensure that there are sufficient provisions for any necessary repair actions. In this paper we will present a maintenance planning approach, called value-driven maintenance planning, to emphasize the fact that the objectives of the company are the reference points for judging;
    a) the functional requirements for the equipment and systems, and
    b) the acceptable cost-benefit ratio for controlling functional failures.
    The three basic phases of the value-driven maintenance planning approach are:
    • the definition of the fundamental and means objectives of the production plant,
    • the classification of equipment into maintenance classes, each associated with a functional requirement specification, and
    • the selection of maintenance tasks (including timing) for equipment assigned to the equipment locations.
    This paper focuses on the two first points, detailing the analysis logic within the context of a case study on a gasification plant in Finland.
