In past the scope of maintenance was confined to the process of production and optimizing the availability of equipment at the minimal cost. From the literature it is evident that with the introduction of sustainable development, there is a shift in the concept of maintenance from simple economic driven production paradigm to sustainable development, which has resulted in a new way of selecting the maintenance activity taking into consideration all three aspects of sustainability i.e. economic, environmental and social aspects. In this review paper we have explained different maintenance strategies and factors which affect the selection of this maintenance strategy. It was also found that there is a scope of using decision making methodology which will consider the aspects of sustainability and select best maintenance strategy.
