How to set up a maintenance decision model based on Life Cycle Costing and KPIsel opzetten op basis van Life Cycle Costing en KPI's Production managers, maintenance managers, team leaders, quality and business process managers, reliability engineers, and anyone who wants to take a deeper look at the financial picture of maintenance.

Maintenance managers take decisions and make (improvement) proposals to management every day. This often happens with a lot of goodwill, but not always with sufficient quantitative and financial substantiation. In order to meet the expectations of management or the financial manager, various solutions exist, such as Life Cycle Costing (LCC) & Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). During this training you learn to set up a balanced system of key figures with respect for the actual life phase of your installation. The correct use of financial indicators is an asset when proposing and evaluating improvement proposals. Attention is also paid to Risk-Based Decision Making, a method that is rapidly gaining in importance.
