Reliability Driven Maintenance--Closing the CMMS "Value Gap"? Part Two: Reliability Driven Maintenance


Reliability driven maintenance (RDM) focuses on understanding the "asset health" to determine what maintenance work should occur and when something should be done.

maintenance cost sap  Major software vendors view maintenance revenue as a birthright, enforcing burdensome contract terms to preserve revenue without regard for customer cost containment needs. As indicated earlier, the major contention of some users with mature, heavily customized, and highly functional enterprise systems is that support costs are too high, whereby vendors require customers to pay for costly upgrades.
