The purposes of the research were (1) to design MML-HTD Model to develop problem solving skills and maintenance skills in the industry and (2) to evaluate the appropriateness of the developed MML-HTD. The research procedure was divided into 3 steps. The first step was to study the principles and the theories of research models. The second step was to design a model and the third step was to evaluate the model. The samples included 9 experts with at least 5 years of work experience in the field of information technology, engineering, and entrepreneur. For the sampling technique, purposive sampling was employed. Data collection tool was the evaluation form with a 5-level rating scale for the appropriateness of the model. The statistics used for the data analysis were the arithmetic mean and the standard deviation. The results showed that (1) the MML-HTD Model to develop problem solving skills and maintenance skills in the industry consisted of 4 tiers: Course Introduction, Micro Processes, Problem Solving and Maintenance Skills, and Feedback and (2) the result from the analysis of the experts’ opinions on the developed model is at quite high level \( \left( {{\bar{\text{X}}} = 4.72,\,{\text{S}}.{\text{D}}. = 0.44} \right) \).
