Maintenance Planning comprises the identification of hardware, software, materiel, facilities, personnel, processes and data needed to enable maintenance services to be competently provided for the product and its support. The process develops and establishes maintenance concepts and requirements, resulting in a detailed maintenance plan. This involves the following business processes: Define repair policy; Determine probable repair tasks; Identify spares, tools, facilities, documentation, techniques and staff required for repair tasks. Interactive Technical Solutions Ltd (ITS) conducts maintenance planning and management utilising concepts such as Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) to create the plan that will lead to an efficient maintenance concept. The required analysis; Failure Modes Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA), Level Of Repair Analysis (LORA), Maintenance Task Analysis (MTA) is also conducted, to build the foundation to establish the optimised maintenance plan, establishing both corrective and preventative activities. ITS engineers remain fully engaged from Concept, ensuring that during design, the supportability aspects are considered; particularly identification of “Common Item” possibilities to reduce inventory, increase cross platform utilisation and subsequently reduce support costs.
