Title[edit]

I think this is the best title for this general subject. There are redirects at maintenance and repair to feed the odd link to them to this page. I envision a nice long article on this topic which many people make a living doing. The Mil Spec material is useful temporarily but just to work from. User:Fredbauder

While the information on this page is valuable, it is quite dry and lacks real world examples. More importantly, I am surprised that it redirects automatically from repair and maintenance, activities that are part of the daily lives of many people, and, in the case of repair at least, which have a history going back thousands of years (e.g archaeological finds of pottery repaired with iron stapes). It seems to me that MRO is a industrial/commercial model, a subset of repair and/or maintenance in general. I suggest we build individual articles about the broader conceptual understanding of repair and/or maintenance, with links to this article in the body or lead. --+|||||||||||||||||||||||||+ (talk) 15:51, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

I just discovered home repair which while not an excellent article yet by any means, is probably much better fitting to the common persons expectation of an article about "repair" than this article. I will change the redirect for 'repair' and maybe add a disambiguation soon.... but I can't right now, if any else wants to instead.+|||||||||||||||||||||||||+ (talk) 00:14, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Production Planning and Control[edit]

An MRO agency or an Airline Operator also engaged in in-house maintenance of Aircraft and its components requires to PLAN its maintenance (Production) activities on the aircraft/components and also Control the operations to achieve an optimum level of Maintenance at a reduced cost but not at the cost of the Safety.

Aircraft should be operational and gainfully flying most of the time after meeting all quality control/maintenance requirements.

PPC (Production Planning and Control) is a functional setup to achieve the above goal. An organisation which effectively employs this setup will have less painful surprises during its operation and will be prepared for such eventualities.

PPC uses varied Technicques and Methods depending on the situations and requirements. These can be elaborated.

[edit]

I am removing a section that sounds like an advertisement in the first paragraph (no references):

The MRO business is seeing a major boom with the emergence of international carriers and private aviation in Asia. The MRO business in India alone is expected to grow to $45Bn from the current $0.5Bn in the next decade. The world's leading provider of MRO software is India's Ramco Systems.

See WP:SOAP. Even if this is true, it should not be in the introductory paragraph. SouthLake (talk) 14:19, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Information regarding the industry surrounding repair might not be directly applicable to the subject of repair in and of itself. Video game industry, for instance, is a distinct subject from Video game.--MDude (talk) 18:30, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

MRO meaning[edit]

At least in aviation, MRO means Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul. MRO comprehends all the maintenance industry activities around aircraft, including full restoration activities aka overhaul. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.170.28.140 (talk) 10:46, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

I agree. I'm going to add the term to the introduction. It is very widely used in the aviation industry. 192.91.172.42 (talk) 01:36, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Well[edit]

is good that we know why the server doesent`t work :)) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.83.175.117 (talk) 18:10, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Not moved. No support for move (beyond IP nominator). The scope of this article should remain specific to its original topic, MRO. See WP:TOPIC. The term "maintenance" is way too broad and clearly has no primary topic, and so should remain a dab page. Born2cycle (talk) 01:10, 14 September 2010 (UTC)



Title Problems--Move?[edit]

Maintenance, repair, and operationsMaintenance — This article is developing into an article about general maintenance, not the more limited concept of MRO, which is a more industry-oriented term, especially for the aerospace industry. Since the above maintenance article is really a disambig page, I propose that this article move to maintenance, and the disambig page move to maintenance (disambiguation). 70.247.164.231 (talk) 22:41, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

MRO Software Section[edit]

Maintenance,_repair,_and_operations#MRO_software Someone went crazy with the initialisms and acronyms there. Shouldn't these terms be spelled out? Adam850 (talk) 23:22, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Hmm, yes and the linked "main" article is about a particular former corporation, now part of IBM, rather than the generic topic. If the various initialisms are corporate rather than general in the business, then they should be moved to that article. Jim.henderson (talk) 13:17, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
