This book is written for current and prospective users of maintenance management systems within industrial manufacturing facilities, for both discrete and continuous process industry. Whilst dealing with common resource management techniques , it focuses on material requirements management, including case studies drawn from practical experience. Even though maintenance is seen as of strategic importance (particularly in capital intensive and continuous process industries), very little attention has been paid to its effective management. Maintenance resources not only include the fitting of spare parts, but also of skilled manpower, tools and instruments, and even money. A sound resource management system is indispensable for effective management, however, a proper technique or model has not been available...until now!show more

Review quote

The book is well written and its organisation is logical. At the end of each chapter ample references for further reading are given. The book can be used for students at the undergraduate or graduate level. The book can also be very useful for practitioners, since the authors did not limit themselves just to develop a theoretical concept, but also proved its usefulness and provided guidelines for developing the underlying computer support - "International Journal of Production Research"show more
