Control chart is a main tool in statistical process control, it is used to promote quality level of maintenance of equipment in the firms, and it can assure loss of costs to be as lower average cost of maintenance when Taguchi method of quality control is used and by several mathematical equations in the process. As a result of huge development of equipment, the production shifted from workers to machines, then the role of maintenance much increased, and failure rates and defects amount become proportional to higher quality level of applied maintenance. As a new subject, the research tries to combine four factors of maintenance, loss of costs, x-bar control chart, and quality level, then to present equations or formulas of four types of loss of costs in order to find their values. As a new methodology, the research will aim at minimizing loss of costs, achieving small average cost of maintenance procedure in the firms, and sorting them by using Taguchi method of quality control with six of related equations.
