The maintenance costs are considered to be one of the most important types of accountancy, because of its current increase during the past decades. The technical development of industry has led to the development of machines, and constantly the complexity of their designs. This point reflected in the maintenance costs, and the rate of production. In order to decrease the maintenance costs without damages and with a high performance, the productive companies has followed several methods to lower the maintenance costs, such as lowering the number of labors, or non-using of the high professionals cause of high cost effective and non-applicability of the proactive maintenance. Despite the fact that these approaches have been used to lower the maintenance costs in general. They affected negatively in the performance of the maintenance department. The current study came up to solve the problem of increasing the maintenance cost via the methodology of scientific researching, specially the use of critical path method (CPM) to lower these costs throughout setting identified programs to maintain all production lines and developing the efficiency all the time out. This may lead to lower all costs to stoppages. Thus, the research consisted of five sections. Section one talked about the stoppages, section two submitted maintenance and the classification of it. Section three treated with the elements of maintenance costs and the ways of rationalization. Chapter four explained the modern scientific methods of rationalizing the maintenance costs. Final section included the practical application on Hammam AL-A’lil Old Cement Factory.

In order to increase the effectiveness of performing evaluation role in the new industrial environment, many industrial companies directed to use non financial indications in the evaluation of the process of the manual performance, because such indications have the ability to connect the internal manual performance with the external environment. Although these indications are significant, many Iraqi industrial companies, our sample among them, have not used such indications to evaluate the performance of the operating process. This research targets at showing the importance of the non financial indications besides the financial ones in the evaluation of the operating performance. It is a suggestive sample of evaluating the performance of the research sample depending on the new samples used to evaluate performance. They are attributed to the new manufacturing environment required for completeness between the evaluating tools which can be financial or non financial used to evaluate the performance. To achieve the research goal, a study has been made to see if one can evaluate the performance of some production lines in the Child’s Clothes Factory in Mosul by using non financial indications according to the suggestive sample. Finally, the research has arrived at some conclusions and recommendations, the most important of them is that the process of evaluating the operating performance on the research sample by using the financial indications alone considered insufficient.
