Front Cover
Elsevier, Jun 22, 2006 - Business & Economics - 312 pages
Managing Maintenance Resources shows how to reduce the complexity involved in engineering, or re-engineering, a maintenance organization. It recognises that this is a complex problem involving many inter-related decisions – such as whether or not resources should be centralized, contractor alliances be entered into or flexible working be adopted. This book provides a unique approach to modeling maintenance-production organizations. It enables the identification of problems and delivers guidelines to develop effective solutions.

This is one of three stand-alone volumes designed to provide maintenance professionals in any sector with a better understanding of maintenance management, enabling the identification of problems and the delivery of effective solutions.

* The second of three stand-alone companion books, focusing on reducing the complexity of organizational design
* Covers the maintenance of plant, production and operations assets in industry and service sectors, including manufacturing, food and process engineering, minerals and mining, transport, power and IT
* Includes review questions, exercises and case studies
* Clearly specified objectives and learning outcomes are given for each chapter, including a route map to link each chapter to the rest of the topics covered
