Managing Maintenance Resources
Elsevier Science and Technology, May 2006, Pages: 312
Managing Maintenance Resources shows how to reduce the complexity involved in engineering, or re-engineering, a maintenance organization. It recognises that this is a complex problem involving many inter-related decisions - such as whether or not resources should be centralized, contractor alliances be entered into or flexible working be adopted.
