In this study, the pros and cons of TPM and RCM were comparatively evaluated at various aspects : a, pp.ication process, objectives, maintenance items, organizations, analysis of maintenace methods, etc. It is found that TPM can be considered as a management discipline. However, in TPM, there seldom exist concrete rules or guidelines to select a maintenance scheme. RCM, which is a widely used maintenance scheme for aircrafts or power plants, has a good analysis and decision logic for maintenance planning. In the paper, similar decision rules are adopted to TPM deployment to get an effective and effecient maintenance Planning.
