The modern systems operating at varying
conditions brought a new paradigm shift to in-machine
renovation and repair. These systems often encounter an
infinite collection of clumsy diagnostic tools and applications
that decrease agility, increase time-to-repair, and
increase management overheads. One approach is to
remove the human and potential costly and time consuming
human errors, from the diagnosis of faults and implementation
of a maintenance strategy. In order to achieve this it
is necessary to develop systems that support advanced
intelligent maintenance systems or smart maintenance
technologies. Self-maintenance machines can be a better
option with the capabilities of condition monitoring,
diagnosing, repair planning and executing in order to
extend the life and performance of equipment. The objective
of this paper is to discuss the concept of self-maintenance,
need of self-maintenance, potential scenarios where
self-maintenance can be successfully implemented and
issues related to self-maintenance machines. It has been
concluded that the aim is to have self-maintenance system
