Sustainability has been broadly defined as
providing goods and services for current and future generations. Industries
play a main role in that definition so more and more industries are working
today to achieve sustainable development for their industry. Achieving a
sustainable development needs strategic and continuous efforts involving the
entire organization, where maintenance efforts play an important role. The
management needs to understand and develop an appropriate strategic approach to
understand the challenges involved and preparing all involved groups and
personnel to achieve the sustainable development through application of
maintenance performance measurement. Maintenance performance needs to be
measured for managing and achieving the business objectives with a sustainable
development goal. Maintenance plays a vital role in managing safety, energy
saving, plant and machineries failure and productivity amongst others. To
manage these activities, appropriate policy and planning is required to be
developed enveloping the entire organization and necessary performance
indicators are required to be identified to meet the unique requirements of the
organization. In this paper, the authors have tried to discuss the issues and
challenges associated with sustainable development with reference to
maintenance performance measurement to achieve maintenance excellence.
