Along its 280 pages published in color, the book deals with the different techniques of development maintenance plan:

  • Maintenance plan based in manufacturers instructions
  • Maintenance plan based on protocols for equipment type
  • Reliability Centered Maintenance

The book details the complete structure that should have the maintenance plan, the complete list of ranges of maintenance of the entire system, the human resources needed to carry it out, and the workload split systems and specialty maintenance technicians.

The book also includes a complete listing of the legal maintenance of the plant, that is, all the maintenance that is required to perform by legal regulations.
