The beginning of the research is to identify and categorize problems in knowledge management of industrial maintenance. When problems are known it is possible to develop successful industrial maintenance. Various organizational structures as well as different arrangements in industrial maintenance increase the meaning of the management of information processes. Information is missing or it is not up to date. Maintenance Information systems are not properly used. Instructions are not followed. That kind of issues can easily be avoid by focusing to manage knowledge in industrial maintenance.
