About the contest
Everything starts with a good basis. The same goes for maintenance and asset management. Optimal maintenance management starts with strong, well thought-out best practices.
The award for Best Improvement in Maintenance & Asset Management rewards organisations that have taken a major step forward in the applied maintenance and asset management practices. In principle, all types of improvement processes are eligible, i.e. both technical and organisational improvements.
All types of organisations that operate in an asset-intensive environment: maintenance services, project teams or asset management organisations in the industry or infrastructure world
Technical service providers can also take part in the competitions for the awards.
