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)
- The redirect from Maintenance, repair and operations to Maintenance, repair, and operations is incorrect. The second comma in the title, after "repair", is not required due to use of the word 'and'. - BobKilcoyne (talk) 07:41, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Production Planning and Control
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.

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.
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)
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 22.214.171.124 (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. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 01:36, 9 October 2010 (UTC)
For 38 years in the sale of industrial products used as components in production equipment used by the manufacturing industry (all sectors including aviation), an inventory of the most often replaced components is maintained in a storage area similar to the toolroom concept. The storage area is refered to as the MroCrib. Also stored in the supply room are non-production materials used in the manufacturing operations such as; lubricants, gloves, safety goggles and other often used essentials. The Term MRO refers to Maintenance, Repair & Operations materials used for that purpose. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Obonekanobie (talk • contribs) 16:11, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
One more agree :-) "O" is for Overhaul. Current title is misleading, even no strong need to keep MRO. For me its enough to use, say: "Maintenance (engineering)" Scientist 17:35, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
MRO Software Section
- 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)
Mention "Reparations" in the See also section?
Repairs and reparations are often mixed-up, especially by non-native English speakers. Repairs is e.g. for repairing a broken bike, reparations is a legal term. Shall I put it like that in the see also section?SvenAERTS (talk) 12:57, 6 July 2017 (UTC)
- SvenAERTS. I do not think they would ever be confused. They are two very different things and only ever used on two very different contexts. I suggest you take out the three entries. Regards. Eno Lirpa (talk) 13:03, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
- Eno Lirpa "Repairs and reparations are often mixed-up, especially by non-native English speakers." I did. I'm going to leave it for now. Thy for your courteous way of commenting.--SvenAERTS (talk) 11:30, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
