Proper maintenance techniques have been emphasized in recent years due to increased safety and reliability requirements of systems, increased complexity, and rising costs of material and labor. In the related literature, most studies assume that the system after cm or pm is 'as good as new'(perfect maintenance) or 'as bad as old'(minimal maintenance). But many maintenance activities may not result in these two extreme situations but in a complicated intermediate one. Therefore, perfect maintenance and minimal maintenance are not practical in many actual instances and so realistic imperfect maintenance should be modeled. For this study, various imperfect preventive maintenance models are investigated and analyzed. From the analysis of the imperfect maintenance models modeling methods and maintenance policies are arranged and presented some tables providing informations to the maintenance managers.
