When defining a maintenance policy, it must be held in mind the fact that there isn’t such a thing like “good maintenance policy” in itself; instead, for each industrial equipment should be adapted a particular maintenance method, coming to a technical-economic compromise through its products, through its market, its equipments, its people, the managers’ psychology, the organizational culture and, as a consequence, the industrial maintenance will be different. The present article will pursue to highlight the position of the maintenance activity having in mind the imperatives imposed to this activity, the maintenance methods applied at the international level and the methods that can be applied in our country.
