Maintenance Schedule
A checklist of maintenance activities to be performed over a particular time period, typically per year or season.

The schedule forms part of the maintenance plan
and contains the following:
A maintenance schedule only become a maintenance program once all the tasks are fully funded and a team is available to implement the tasks.



Methods to Arrange Maintenance Schedules
  • Seasonal (fall/winter vs. spring/summer)
  • Statutory vs. unregulated maintenance
  • Major maintenance vs. Routine maintenance
  • Time-based vs. condition-based maintenance
