The same is true of Maintenance Organisations. These are under pressure to improve performance and reduce costs.
This learning event focuses on 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.
