Maintenance planning and scheduling require utilization of resources at a maximum level. Integrated maintenance planning is an approach in planning that takes into consideration global production systems at the business level. It considers the expectation of all internal and external stakeholders of the maintenance function to secure the maximum benefits from the whole system. In this chapter, the process of high level (strategic) planning that links maintenance strategies to business and production strategies is described. The traditional low level (operational) planning and scheduling linked with the strategic level plan is also described.
