For those not yet dismayed by these figures, maybe the following notion will make some of them wince: in less than five years, user enterprises pay the amount of their entire license fees once again in maintenance. In other words, software customers effectively re-buy their applications every four to five years through maintenance fees, while enterprise software vendors continue to raise annual S&M fees year over year and well beyond the inflation or Read More

Lean Asset Management--Is Preventive Maintenance Anti-Lean?
How can we determine the right maintenance strategy for a specific asset? To meet the objectives of lean, we need to evaluate the cost of failure in terms of

Monitoring means inspections, sensors, and enormous amounts of information that must be gathered and analyzed. The cost of monitoring the health of the asset, the cost of failure, and the cost of maintenance operations must be evaluated on an asset by asset basis. This analysis reveals that RCM is not the most appropriate for all assets. Other less rigorous methodologies exist. Determining the Right Read More
