This book studies the implications of preparedness doctrine on various facets of the maintenance function. The basic concepts of preparedness are initially described, followed by an overview of maintenance principles and practices. The author then brings these two themes together, exploring the relationships in such diverse areas as maintenance requirements determination, repair and modification strategies, maintenance venues and personnel. A central theme is the possibility of maximising aircraft availability by carefully tailoring the maintenance program based on preparedness goals. Conclusions and recommendations arising from the study are included.

This paper is used as a textbook in the RAAF's Engineering Officer Basic Course.
