|maintenance strategy (PM)|
A rule for the sequence of planned maintenance and inspection tasks.
A maintenance strategy contains the maintenance packages that define the cycle in which the tasks must be performed, for example, every two months, every 5,000 km, every 500 operating hours. It contains additional scheduling parameters such as shift factor, preliminary and follow-up buffers, and hierarchy. Maintenance strategies are obligatory in strategy plans. Single cycle plans do not use maintenance strategies. They have only one maintenance cycle.
