Abstract: Very limited research has attempted to consider maintenance strategies in the design of MRPII. The manufacturers who need to optimise the return of their assets and facilities using systematic maintenance management will find that the MRPII system is unable to provide them with the solution. Proper design and integration of maintenance management into MRPII enable the manufacturers not only to manage their production planning and scheduling activities but also to analyse their maintenance history, carry out cost analysis and study the failure trends to determine how the available labour and materials in maintenance can be used effectively. In order to overcome the weakness of the MRPII system in the management of maintenance activities, this paper describes some research work that has been carried out using the integrated definition method (IDEF) model to systematically integrate maintenance into MRPII. Moreover, in order to illustrate the methodology, a lamp manufacturing company with a lot of highly automated equipment and facilities which depends on modern maintenance strategies as well as MRPII-type production planning and control is described.
