Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis was to test the validity of the hypothesis is that the civilian service industry does a better job maintaining facilities and utility systems than the Air Force civil engineering community. The researcher looked at several sectors of the US service industry and compared their preventive maintenance programs to the Air Force Recurring Work Program RWP. The researcher reviewed contemporary Air Force and civilian literature on preventive maintenance PM, performed case studies on two civilian maintenance departments, and conducted personal interviews with military and civilian maintenance managers. This data were collected to compare the RWP with civilian PM programs and determine if specific practices were used in the civilian programs that improve the RWP. Analysis of the results of the study indicated that the hypothesis was not entirely correct the Air Force RWP was found to be one of the most comprehensive maintenance management systems studied.
