Maintenance

Combination of all technical and administrative actions, including supervisory actions, intended to

retain an item in, or restore it to, a state in which it can perform a required function

Note 1 to entry: There are two basic categories of maintenance: corrective maintenance done after a failure has

occurred and preventive maintenance (testing, inspection, condition monitoring, periodic) done before a failure

has occurred. See also ISO 14224[15], 9.6.

Note 2 to entry: Maintenance activities of either preventive or corrective maintenance category type, is shown in

ISO 14224:2006[15], Table B.5.
