Designing for Maintenance

Abstract

Chapter 10, “Designing for Durability,” addressed designing for reduced maintenance. Nothing is ever maintenance free, so designing for reduced maintenance is the best we can do. It is unwise to use the phrase “minimum maintenance,” because it raises unrealistic expectations and leads to a false sense of security in both the designer’s and the client’s minds. This chapter will address the design of items that require more frequent maintenance. The point here is that if we cannot design an item for reduced maintenance, then we should design it for easy and inexpensive maintenance.
