Productivity, based on estimated and actual hours, of most maintenance workers is only 30 to 50 per cent. Given the significance of maintenance to manufacturing competitiveness, it is surprising how little research is being carried out.

Identifies the areas of concern in maintenance scheduling and surveys representative work from the academic and practitioner literature. Specific points of practice and theory which need further investigation are pinpointed.
