Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the maintenance intervals of critical components of jet dyeing machines in an effort to minimize downtime and calculate maintenance costs for engine damage to the jet dyeing. Design/ methodology/ approach: In this study an optimization method was developed to determine the replacement interval of a critical component, namely the Age Replacement Method. Findings: Based on the results of the calculation interval obtained preventive care critical components of jet engines during dyeing 1549 hours. It means that the component must be replaced before operation for 1549 hours or there is 6 times the turnover of prevention under taken in the interval of one year and the resulting decrease in the total cost of 82%. Research limitations/ implications: A review conducted in this paper against one component only, and then it can be developed for this type of component production machines. Practical implications: If the company is implementing a policy of replacement of critical components of the engine on the jet dyeing machine with a method of age replacement, then it will occur treatment cost savings amounting to Rp. 6,752,886 lower when compared with the initial conditions the company previously Rp 37,441,132. Originality/ value: This study combines the Pareto Diagram method and the Age Replacement Method to obtain optimum maintenance scheduling.
