In this article a model is presented concerning the organisation of the maintenance process of a quality system. This model consists of the composition of two existing models. The point of departure is a three‐level model of quality management. Then each of these three levels has been split up into two components called “system‐structural” and “social‐structural”. After introducing several maintenance concepts on a conceptual level, these concepts are applied to each of these levels and components.
