Filled with color charts, graphs, and case studies, these operational guidelines assist in creating staffing levels for your institution using APPA’s Levels of Maintenance, and exposing the reader to best management practices across a wide variety of campuses.
Additionally, the book addresses a wide spectrum of issues facing the maintenance community today such as outsourcing, maintenance of buildings, customer service, Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), sustainability, staff development, turnover of work (TOW), and managing a major interruption of basic services.
This book also provides real-world management examples of the impact and importance of technological enhancements within the facilities profession. It explores the evolution and broader implications and opportunities of integrated platforms, and the utilization of data and mega-data in identifying pending concerns, and their use in driving decisions and procedures to address them.
