The maintenance is the longest and the most expensive phase among the life cycle of the facility. The careful consideration of maintenance, at the early stage of construction process, embodies a conscious attempt to extend the life cycle of the facility, to maintain the performance during the life cycle, and to reduce life cycle cost.This paper introduces the concept of maintainability which integrates the expertise and experience of the maintenance into the planning and the design phase. And, as an preliminary introduction of maintainability, it proposes the strategy for combining the two programs(maintainability and value engineering) through benchmarking the maintainability model of Construction Industry Institute in U.S. and the current research results about value engineering at the design phase in Korea, and the comparative analysis about the procedure, the organization, and the allocated activity of involved parties. In addition, the usage of the standard design and the specification and the maintenance manual are suggested as methods to track the maintenance alternatives which created from this combined program. The verification of those combining strategies and tracking tools was implemented by the interview with the experts and the pilot project.
