dc.description.abstract Literature on engineering and technology shows that industry is ready to allocate a more meaningful and strategic role to maintenance management, and that economic factors will force management to elevate maintenance to a strategic corporate issue. The primary goal of this study was to determine the state of affairs concerning maintenance in some manufacturing ventures in the Vaal Triangle. The application of modern maintenance techniques started only recently in the majority of them. In many instances change is still in the negotiation stage (middle management with top management) or in the planning stage. But most of the companies involved in the study acknowledge the strategic importance of maintenance; they understand that machine availability depends on the effectiveness of maintenance. According to the managers of maintenance departments, the two most important strengths are the experience of maintenance personnel and a planned preventative maintenance system. The three greatest threats on the road to more effective maintenance are old plant skills shortage and misuse of machinery. en
