Starting with significance of maintenance function and necessity to execute specific maintenance tasks, in this paper is pointed that early integration of all phases of a technical system lifecycle is necessary. Emphasized is priceless value of ascertainment that it is necessary to have an overall perception of technical system lifecycle, from the user’s initial demand, over general design, development, fabrication, delivery, exploitation and maintenance, all the way to withdrawal from operations, depreciation and recycling. Next is presented design for maintenance approach, which originated together with lifecycle engineering, whose introduction changed entire philosophy of usage and maintenance of technical systems. New paradigm of technical systems usage and maintenance is: now days, efficient are considered not those systems that effectively fulfill their goal function, but those with lifecycle ending safely.
