Providing appropriate maintenance is essential to achieve effective production. For planning proper maintenance strategy, it is necessary to know potential deterioration of the facility which may lead to various problems. In this paper, we propose a case based approach to the evaluation of potential deterioration modes. Deterioration cases are represented in terms of the deterioration process in which basic deterioration mechanisms are combined. Algorithm for the qualitative evaluation of deterioration of the specified part of the facility is proposed. Propagation of effects of deterioration to other parts of the facility is also discussed. Effectiveness of the method is demonstrated using an experimental system.
