  1. The Business of Maintenance Management - Far too much effort has been spent reacting to failures and maintaining our way to reliability. To truly maintain assets, we need stability. We need to stop creating defects that are unplannable. Business value can only be attained in a stable environment. The Business of Maintenance Management provides the strategies to stabilize organizations and deliver true business value.
  2. The Processes of Maintenance Management - Process-dependent organizations are sustainable. People dependency is a risk. The Processes of Maintenance Management starts with the base of preventative maintenance (PM) program development. PM programs are the foundation of maintenance best practices. The next section moves into the actual workflow and processes of maintenance. Both the PM programs and the process are managed with the CMMS, the final section of the book.
  3. The Enablers of Maintenance Management - There are various functions that enable maintenance. If they are not implemented and supported, optimized maintenance is unattainable. The most obvious enabler is MRO inventory and purchasing where both stock and critical spares must be optimized. The enabler of sustained quality, training, is covered, along with operator-driven reliability.
