Maintenance Objectives

As part of the operations planning and physical asset planning processes, the roles and performance standards of assets should be defined and, where appropriate, performance indicators developed.


The maintenance framework developed for the assets should enable the performance standards of the assets to be met efficiently and effectively. With this in mind, maintenance objectives should be clearly defined.


They should facilitate performance measurement and enable appropriate policies and strategies to be developed for their achievement.
Allocate maintenance resources.
Subject to the specific needs of the various types of asset, the following factors should be considered in developing delivery strategies and in allocating resources:

1. Maintenance tasks and activities
2. Level and mix of professional and technical expertise
3. Balance of in-house and outsourced expertise
4. Procurement arrangements
5. Management of resources
6. Maintenance facilities

Big-Worm Trading will consider maintenance within the overall context of asset Management and their core business to determine the scope, extent and cost-effectiveness of undertaking maintenance themselves or outsourcing if needs be.

Develop a maintenance information system

A comprehensive and appropriately structured asset register should form the hub of any asset management system. Information stored in asset registers varies for different asset types and is determined by The Client requirements. However, the asset register should be adequate to support, among others, systems for maintenance cost recording, work scheduling and financial planning. It should include the following information:

1. The current status of asset condition, performance and capacity and how these have affected service delivery
2. Asset description, value and location
3. Asset attributes
4. Asset age, service life and replacement requirements
5. Statutory requirements (for registration, testing etc.)
6. Standard of service (time, cost, quality)
