Abstract
The VLT project considered from its beginning that maintenance was going to be an important issue to support the operation of this large observatory. A special maintenance philosophy and strategy was developed considering as its primary base preventive and predictive maintenance (PM and PdM). This paper describes the basic concepts under the VLT maintenance strategy and how to implement it in practice.
