Abstract: The appraisal and the evaluation of maintenance culture, enhancing productivity through optimal ‎machine availability and utilization in manufacturing industries has been carried out in the Akure ‎metropolitan. Mathematical models were used to assess the performance of maintenance personnel in the ‎four prominent manufacturing industries in Akure, Nigeria. The results obtained indicated that production ‎machines are already getting old, thereby resulting to frequent breakdown. Maintenance analysis were ‎generally poor due to poor review or monitoring of maintenance performance, low degree of planning, ‎improper execution of preventive maintenance, lack of necessary spare parts, and inadequate ‎maintenance personnel. Some useful suggestions were made in order to increase the effectiveness of ‎maintenance in the industries.‎
