Thanks to ICT, Web emergency and Internet, the achievement of maintenance services and monitoring can be performed automatically, remotely and through various distributed information systems. Hence the emergence of the concept of services offered through maintenance architectures, ranging from autonomic systems to integrated systems where knowledge management, cooperation and collaboration are vital to any operation. Into this context, new services like intelligent maintenance, self maintenance, etc are required. To this end, a new concept called s-maintenance is emerged. This concept defines a new generation of maintenance systems founded on a knowledge based system. While existing systems don't respond to the characteristics of this new generation of systems, we design in this paper an architecture of a maintenance component based system respecting the characteristics of s-maintenance. Each component in the system is defined to respond to one or many characteristics of this concept.
