This publication defines maintenance management as a systematic approach to developing work programs, budgeting and allocating resources, scheduling work, and reporting and evaluating performance and cost. A maintenance management system can be a valuable tool to achieve a number of benefits or it can be used to attain limited objectives. The typical benefits of a maintenance management system include improved resource utilization, equitable resource allocation, budget evaluation, and improved employee morale. The flip side or pitfalls of maintenance management are discussed as well and can include insufficient management support, overrefinement, lack of adequate orientation and training, and labor union opposition.
