Maintenance Management

Maintenance Management

Maintenance management is the process of maintaining and preserving physical assets and resources like buildings and machinery to improve asset availability and reliability, maximize the efficacy of core services, and control and reduce costs. Improper planning and execution of maintenance will lead to avoidable costs, dangerous situations, and, in extreme cases, complete loss of assets.

In this course, the principles of maintenance management will be taught, including the legal framework, establishing a maintenance strategy and plan and run a maintenance programme.

The course is useful for managers overseeing the maintenance of facilities and equipment, and officials involved in planning (public) buildings and public building maintenance.

Topics addressed are:

  • Introduction to maintenance management concepts and definitions
  • Management basics: time, resource and fiance planning, quality and risk management 
  • Strategies and plans for specific maintenance management situations
  • Use of CMMS and project management software to plan and monitor maintenance management activities
  • Case studies and assignments on specific maintenance management topics


At the end of the course, participants will have a good understanding of the fundamental concepts of maintenance management and their practical application.
