In his introduction the author reviews the changes in handling equipment arising from containerisation. Designing a workshop for mobile equipment is discussed with regard to the project team and planning, assessing the required number of craftsmen and working places, workshops sections, maintenance and repair procedure in the workshop and the specification of construction and facilities. In the next section the maintenance and repair organisation is described under the headings of "organisation of personnel", "workshop cycle", and "spare parts". The administrative side of the system is covered in the last section, which includes orders, cost recording, evaluation and allocation, investigation and analysis of weak points, and preventive maintenance and repair. The qualification and training of staff is also considered.
