This paper presents a leaflet with design-for-maintenance guidelines. It aims at supporting developers of industrial equipment in their design-for-maintenance practices. The use of this leaflet should lead to increased attention for design-for-maintenance aspects and to improve idea generation. The way of presenting the guidelines to the user should ensure that the support will be adopted in practice. The feedback that we have received from industrial partners indicates that the support is useful in practice. A thorough evaluation study has been planned in order to confirm this.
