Real-World Results

Both represent complete revisions of earlier and extremely popular work, updated to reflect present thinking, and both can be considered essential reading.

Maintenance, Replacement and Reliability is a completely revised and updated edition of a best seller published in 2006. Realizing that in only a few short years, things had changed, in some cases radically, Jardine and Tsang knew their very popular book needed updating. Accordingly, the chapters have all been revised and several new topics introduced, for example, the role of maintenance in sustainability issues, PAS 55 as a framework for optimizing maintenance management of assets, sparse or unavailable data.

Over the past decade, the business environment has changed drastically. Globalization and consolidation have been particularly instrumental in the changes in maintenance standards, approaches, and the use of technology to become more efficient and cost effective. This second edition of the very popular Asset Management Excellence reflects the work environment of the new millennium, where personnel with tools go out to address the needs of maintaining assets. At the same time, many of the tools, technologies, and thought processes have evolved and matured to allow a rethinking of the deeper maintenance processes.
