  • Description:

    Facility Maintenance Management System is a 'how to/self-help' book which presents a cohesively structured model that is built on a complete empirical framework. Its aim is to offer a no-nonsense, step-by-step guide to anyone who undertakes the development and subsequent management of a holistic operation and maintenance scheme for the chosen (production, manufacturing, hospitality, and service) facility regardless of its type, size, and existing condition.

    The widely held stereotype concerning any maintenance program, as the jargon itself somewhat misleadingly infers, is its exclusive confinement to the technical aspects only. Meaning, the substantiveness of the maintenance techniques such as the preventative maintenance (PM), condition monitoring (CM), control points monitoring and analysis (CPMA), etc. necessary to utterly run the program. While, undeniably, the technical package is what forms the nucleus of any maintenance scheme, it is important to be aware though of other parallel and inseparable key non-technical/administrative components that ought to support and sustain it. Just to name a few, it is equally important to establish the apt guiding policies, standards; business processes and manning, audit protocol, maintenance inventory control, change management, etc. Their absence or insufficiency makes highly probable that the implemented maintenance program cannot function seamlessly to the eventual detriment of the organization's set performance and production goals. And the many ensuing intractable problems will certainly plague and puzzle, to no end, its chief program implementers: the Operation and Maintenance Departments. This, ultimately, puts them in the receiving end of regular flaks from the top management whom - wittingly or unwittingly - may have its own share of internal programmatic inadequacies for the failings of its underlings.

    The book's methodologies take the combined macro and micro-approach in covering this broad and specialized subject to amply set out and address the loads of attendant loose ends often associated with it.


    “Have read your nice book - Facility Maintenance Management System. I could say that its an important tool for organizing a more comprehensive facility maintenance management system. It will surely help technical personnel and management to improve their maintenance program and gain a mastery of their own resources thru technical information, records and establish guidelines. This book is a clear presentation of technical information and system analysis which is very vital for growth and development of any facility maintenance management system”
