Maintenance control deals with the co-ordination of maintenance demand and resources in such a way that stated objectives are satisfied. This allocation problem is characterized by complexity, uncertainty and flexibility. These conditions warrant a hierarchical decision structure primarily aimed at a stepwise refinement of control on the basis of increasingly detailed information. A reference framework of decision functions is developed to facilitate the design of maintenance control systems in what essentially are unique situations.
