Definition

Corrective Maintenance is a maintenance type that is intended to restore operability to a system after a fault or issue emerges in that system. At this point, the machinery in question has a recognizable fault and may require Teardown, Overhaul, and will likely incur Downtime. Since Corrective Maintenance is often a form of Non-routine Maintenance, the Turnaround (estimated time until completed repair) can be unpredictable. Preventative, Predictive, and Planned Maintenance procedures are often in place to reduce the risk of necessary Corrective Maintenance.

Related terms: non-routine maintenance, shutdown maintenance, preventative maintenance, predictive maintenance, planned maintenance, teardown, overhaul, downtime, turnaround, outage
