  • Global Maintenance and Reliability Indicators

    When a company wants to compare maintenance and availability performance internally or externally, they need a common platform in terms of predefined indicators or metrics so that they can compare apples to apples. Comparison of metrics when the bases of calculation are not the same is a frustrating non value-added activity. This challenge has been met by SMRP (Society for Maintenance & Reliability Professionals) and EFNMS (European Federation of National Maintenance Societies vzw). These two maintenance organizations conducted a joint effort to compare and document standard indicators for maintenance and reliability performance.
