Organizations increasingly need to make improvements as a key part of their culture in order to remain cost-competitive. The same is true of Maintenance Organisations. Maintenance Departments are increasingly under pressure to improve performance and reduce costs. This program looks at Maintenance Auditing and Benchmarking as two key tools that can be used as the basis for driving the improvement process in maintenance, by identifying best practices, gaps with current practices, and assist with the formulation of strategies to bridge such gaps.In addition, we address how Auditing and Benchmarking can become an integral part of a maintenance management strategy by integrating such activities into maintenance performance measures, key performance indicators and objective setting.
