    One of the main challenges that maintenance organizations are facing is grouping of different equipment to be maintained together. The challenge of grouping equipment to be maintained according to the same preventive maintenance plans suffers from lack of academic and empirical studies. This study, by getting inspired from the product family and product architecture theory, will try to investigate how this theory can be used to design and develop equipment groups to reduce the complexity in developing and managing the preventive maintenance plans.
