Developing Performance Indicators for Managing Maintenance
From Book News, Inc.
This book is primarily a "directory" on how to measure and then improve equipment maintenance management. Mr Wireman describes the basic methods of maintenance with chapters on the pros and cons of preventative maintenance, RCM, TPM and computerized maintenance managing software. It then describes the performance measures that can be used to effectively manage maintenance. This is a very good book for engineers wanting to improve the maintenance function, but if you are after a handbook on how to set up a PM, RCM or TPM program then this isn't the book you want.
