Optimal maintenance starts with strong best practices

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.
