Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering

The current literature on maintenance engineering is scanty and scattered over a wide range of publications. This journal aims to bring together developments in maintenance and quality that are of interest to both practitioners and researchers.

Editorial objective


This exciting journal looks at maintenance engineering from a positive standpoint, and clarifies its recently elevatedstatus as a highly technical, scientific, and complex field. Typical areas examined include:

  • Budget and control
  • Equipment management
  • Maintenance information systems
  • Process capability and maintenance
  • Process monitoring techniques
  • Reliability-based maintenance
  • Replacement and life cycle costs
  • TQM and maintenance


Maintenance engineering is one of the “Cinderellas” of the organizational world, yet it has a crucial role to play in minimizing process variability and sustaining process stability – the essential ingredients of product quality.

Key benefits

In the high-tech, quality driven, competition-orientated business world of the new millenium, opinions have changed about the “Cinderella” of the engineering world. Increasingly sophisticated technology demands highly skilled and knowledgeable engineers to ensure it consistently operates to the highest standards, so that product quality is not compromised. This is the journal you need to keep you abreast of the latest developments and ensure you keep the pace up – while keeping your costs down.
