English term or phrase: Service Systems Manual
A 4th handbook of the Branch Automation Series
must be translated and its title is «Service Systems Manual». Can someone help me find the proper translation? I thought "Manuel d'entretien"
but this is really not complete. Thank you

French translation:Manuel des systèmes de maintenance
Explanation:
Bonjour, MOlière

Je préfère utilizer le mot "maintenance" car c'est une activité aussi bien préventive que corrective, alors que entretien me fait penser à préventif et en anglais, si je ne me trompe pas, le "servicing" vient plutôt après une panne qu'avant.

Manuel de Systèmes d'Entretien


Explanation:
or "Manuel Systèmes d'Entretion" depending on space considerations.

I'm assuming (always dangerous, I know) that the 'Service' in the title is a synonym for 'Maintenance' and not some other context.
