Abstract : Management science techniques have found many profitable uses in industrial applications, but their employment in the field of maintenance management has been lacking. An especially powerful tool of management science is that of linear programming. This technique is described and its several benefits discussed. Possible applications of the device are explored and a simple least-cost model developed. The model appears applicable to recurring facility maintenance work which may be accomplished by one of several methods involving various combinations of manpower, materials, machinery, and money. The theoretical model requires testing in a practical situation to verify its true value.
