A condition-based release of maintenance jobs is analysed for a production/ maintenance-systemwhere the conditions of themachines deteriorate as a function of multiple production parameters and maintenance is performed by a separate department. If a predefined operational availability is to keep up, the machine condition that triggers the release of maintenance jobs at minimum costs has to be determined. In the paper a specific continuous condition monitoring and an information exchange protocol are developed, the components of waiting time between release and execution are operationalised and relevant effects of choosing the triggering condition are presented. Stochastic approaches to calculate the triggering condition are formulated and analysed by simulations.
