In so many company boardrooms the term 'maintenance' often gives those in senior management an uneasy feeling. The main reason may be due to the fundamental way that they think about business. They generally think, speak and discuss opportunities, profits, risks, new markets, added value and costs for their business. Meanwhile, the maintenance manager generally focuses on techniques, failures, technical problems and workforce schemes, rather than purely costs and benefits. Maintenance costs are seen as penalties from 'on high', whilst maintenance as a function is not seen as an opportunity for business improvement, nor for creating added value.

Techniek en management zijn twee verschillende werelden. Topmanagers denken vooral in termen als kosten en baten, toegevoegde waarde, nieuwe markten, veiligheid, imago(schade), kansen en risico’s. Onderhoud lijkt geen belangrijk punt te zijn op hun agenda. Onderhoudsmanagers denken in termen van techniek, storingen, technische problemen, onderhoudsplanningen en niet zo zeer in kosten en baten. Door dit verschil in denken ontgaat het de meesten dat de onderhoudsfunctie veel toegevoegde waarde en kansen kan creëren voor de organisatie.

Organizations have to work continuously on the improvement of the quality of their products and services to secure future profit. They have also to develop and deliver timely new innovations and products. But the development of these new innovations and products is always both a challenging and a difficult process. Challenging because it enables us to exploit new ways, challenges and possibilities, and difficult because it requires choices to be made, which exclude other challenges and possibilities. Each choice or possibility in the design process also means financial consequences or a specific cost price and so impacts upon future profitability.

Quality, short completion times, low costs, innovation: these are crucial requirements for a successful modern manufacturing business. But one thing missing from this list is the management of product information. The current approach to the product development process is multi-disciplinary. In the past, manufacturing companies dealt with customers and suppliers, but outsourcing and globalization mean that many more parties are now involved in the product development process. Clients want a customized product and they want it fast; they are now being given a say on matters that penetrate deeply into the process of developing the eventual product.
