Types of Maintenance Planning

What are different Types of Maintenance Plannings?

There are basically three Types of Maintenance planning:


  1. Centralized Planning


  1. Localized Planning


  1. Partially Centralized Planning




  1. Centralized Planning: Suppose an organization has a number of plants All the plants have the similar product. Also all the plants are physically located in the vicinity of each other. In such cases many organizations opt for a centralized maintenance planning. For ex: There are five Cement Plants located in the vicinity of each other. Plant and Machinery is similar in nature. Then it is better to have a Centralized Maintenance Planning.

  1. Localized Planning: Suppose an Organization has number of plants at different locations across the country. These plants may have similar or different product, does not matter. In such cases it is better to have a Localized Maintenance Planning. The person who is working on the field will have a better idea of condition of plant and machinery then a person who is sitting in a corporate office. In such cases Localized planning is successful. However, there is no hard and fast rule, we can have localized maintenance planning even if all the plants are located in the vicinity of each other. That varies organization to organization.
