Maintenance is often the largest controllable operating cost in asset intensive industries. It is also a critical business function that has direct impact on plant output, product quality, production cost, safety, and environmental performance.
For these reasons, maintenance is regarded, in best practice organizations, not simply as a cost to be avoided but, together with reliability engineering, as a high leverage business function. It is considered a valuable business partner contributing to asset capability and continuous improvement in profitability.
