ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Research on condition-based maintenance (CBM) spans disciplines and introduces a wide range of concepts. On the basis of statistical analysis of the papers published in major maintenance-related journals, the development of the field of CBM in the recent past is examined . Consequently, the goal of the paper is to review the scientific field of CBM in view of the high pace of proliferation of research articles in the domain. The CBM field began in the 1940s with primary efforts due to the railway companies in the western part of US. Today, CBM has developed into a truly worldwide discipline involving such fields as economics, management, insurance, maintenance, and production. This paper also discusses possible advancements and challenges for the future. A number of articles on general surveys, and specific applications in industries are reviewed. It is hoped that this article will contribute to the further advancement of CBM research.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Navorsing oor toestandgebaseerde instandhouding (TGI) maak gebruik van uiteenlopende dissiplines en 'n wye reeks van begrippe. 'n Kwantitatiewe ontleding van TGI-publikasies in vooraanstande instandhoudingsjoernale van die jongste tyd plaas die kollig op ontwikkeling van die vakgebied. Derhalwe is die doel van hierdie publikasie 'n ondersoek na die proliferasie en uiteenlopendheid van navorsingsaktiwitete op die TGI-terrein. TGI het in die vorige eeu in die veertigerjare ontstaan in die VSA se spoorvervoerbedryf. Tans is TGI 'n globale verskynsel wat gebruik maak van kennisvelde soos ekonomie, bestuur, versekering, instandhouding en produksie. Hierdie artikel behandel ook toekomstige TGI-ontwikkelings om sodoende vooruitgang te stimuleer.
