Modern manufacturing industry recognizes the importance of maintenance on productivity, and strives to develop it. Maintenance information systems play a key role in this. 

Many ERP systems offer features for managing maintenance information. However, the systems are developed to manage enterprise-wide ERP, with maintenance process support understandably taking a back seat. This is often reflected in the fact that the ERP system does not fully meet the specific needs of maintenance, such as visual work planning.
