Abstract: Maintenance is what is done in machinery to prevent failure or breakdown. In ancient times no proper planning was carried out to do maintenance with the idea behind being simple machines and easy to control. As time progresses people started to find out that it was necessary to safeguard equipment to reduce costs for continuous growth. Maintenance is best divided its phases by world war two due to the fact that everyone wanted to win the war so new ideas were coming from different scholars as to get back their resources and land.
