Vice versa, by bottom-up methodology (document analysis) the designing and implementation of corrective maintenance model are carried out.
So to perform corrective maintenance reengineering it is necessary to divide operating processes into parts that can be carried out in real time, to regroup processes into subsystems based on data, define priorities and interdependence of the system elements through maintenance objectives that are based on data.
Corrective maintenance reengineering is approached as the changes are related to the development of information technologies, and the following processes are thus defined:
The corrective maintenance reengineering main idea is to fully meet user's requirements and expectations.
It is indicative that the corrective maintenance engineering does not improve the existing maintenance level, but requires the rejection and then restart of a job in a new way, i.e.
RCM radical approaches should not be installed without preparations, but laboratory models of corrective maintenance engineering should be first designed and carried out to check the functioning, find faults and defects and make corrections, all these being based on the set up objectives of technical system utilization.
