Autonomous maintenance is a type of maintenance that focuses on empowering machine operators to make the necessary maintenance decisions and fixes, without the aid of a specialized maintenance technician. It’s generally a part of a total productive maintenance strategy and is considered to be the first steppingstone to these types of strategic plans.
Autonomous maintenance has an impact on all other maintenance types. By enabling the people who work on these machines to notice, fix, and improve day-to-day operations, strategies that once covered things like routine maintenance and corrective maintenance can be rolled into your operators’ tasks, instead of your maintenance technicians’ days.
This is because, the core idea of autonomous maintenance is to provide day-to-day operators with more responsibility and to better maintain your machines and other equipment.

At the end of the day, autonomous maintenance is all about putting power back into machine operators’ hands, so that they can fix, maintain, and care for the equipment they know the best.
