Managing Maintenance Resources

Front Cover
Butterworth-Heinemann, 2006 - Business & Economics - 292 pages
Managing Maintenance Resources recognizes that re-engineering a maintenance organization is a complex problem involving many decisions, such as whether to centralize resources, to enter into contractor alliances, and adopt flexible working - each of which are influenced by conflicting factors. This book shows how to reduce the complexity of organizational design through a unique way of modeling the maintenance-production organization, along with organizational guidelines to provide solutions to identified problems. It is the second of three stand-alone companion books with the aim of providing better understanding of maintenance operations.

All three books are used in their turn to underpin firstly the formulation of strategy (Strategic Maintenance Planning 0756069926), secondly of the design of the appropriate organization (Maintenance Resources 0750669934), and finally the creation of the necessary systems (Maintenance Systems and Documentation 0750669942) for the ultimate Plant Maintenance Set (0750669950).
