What is the meaning of Repair?

Repair

Meaning

Repair is one of the four fundamental measures defined in DIN standard 31051, of which maintenance is comprised:

  1. Maintenance
    Maintenance is understood to mean “measures to delay the depletion of the existing wear margin to retain the maintenance object”. These measures are generally carried out according to fixed maintenance intervals (according to manufacturer specifications or based on experience values).
  2. Inspection
    Inspection comprises all activities which contribute to recording and evaluating the current status of a maintenance object. It serves to identify potential production issues which may occur at an early stage.
  3. Repair
    Repair means all activities which serve to restore the defined target status – that is, repairs carried out when a machine or system has a defect.
  4. Improvement
    Improvement measures include all activities that increase the reliability of a machine or system and remedy any weaknesses. The actual function of the object does not change.
