It shows where the added-value of maintenance lies and how an organisation can be best structured to realise this value. One of the main contributions of VDM is that it offers a common language to management and maintenance to discuss maintenance matters. VDM identifies four value drivers in maintenance and provides concepts to manage by those drivers. For all four value drivers, maintenance can help to increase a company’s economic value. VDM makes a link between value drivers and core competences.

At the start of the twentieth century, installations were barely or not mechanized, had simple design, worked in stand-alone configurations and often had a considerable overcapacity. Not surprisingly, nowadays installations are highly automated and technologically very complex. Often these installations are integrated with production lines that are right-sized in capacity. Installations not only became more complex, they also became more critical in terms of reliability and availability. Redundancy is only considered for very critical components.

1 Quick & Dirty Decision Charts (Q&D) A Q&D decision chart is a decision diagram with questions on several aspects including; failure paterns, repair behaivours of the equipment, business context, maintenance capabilities, cost structure etc. Answering the questions for a given installation, the user proceeds through the branches of the diagram. The process stops with the recommendation of the most appropriate policy for the specific installation. The Q&D approach allows for a relatively quick determination of the most advantageous maintenance policy.
