Maintenance standards form the basis of both the planning and accounting of maintenance work. With their help the work processes, the pricing and then the analysis of maintenance contracts can be made uniform. Maintenance standards are not only worth using for scheduled maintenance, but also in the case of failure management.
If a standard is applicable when planning a given piece of maintenance work it can be of great benefit. The most important advantage of uniform data management is comparability, as with its help service providers can be compared both in respect of price and performance. Equipment and maintenance points can be identified that operate less efficiently or more expensively than others, by this making facility management more efficient and improving quality.
