The operation of large production assets requires many decisions from the acquisition and design of new assets to the choice of lubricant for a specific piece of equipment. The decisions made in maintenance have a direct effect on the management of the production process, making it important to ensure correct maintenance decision making. However, studies on maintenance decision making tend to focus on smaller areas of decisions being made in a process, but rarely the entire process. To introduce more studies that consider the entire maintenance process, this paper proposes using a modular Maintenance Decision Architecture. The paper introduces a framework for structuring information sources into standardized information modules and mapping them to maintenance decisions made across the entire organization. The application of approaches from product, system, and service engineering are used to support the management of the complexities of maintenance of large production facilities.
