Editorial Reviews


Daryl Mather has provided a broad and structured guide to implementing a CMMS, irrespective of your choice of system. Organizations looking to establish a tool to help them manage and improve maintenance will find the hints in this book simple to follow and extremely useful.
-John Searls, Business Improvement Consultant, Rio Tinto

… written by someone who has clearly 'been there, done that'. It contains many practical pointers to the effective management of maintenance in general, but with a particular emphasis on getting the best out of a CMMS. It will be helpful to those new to the maintenance management field, and also to the more experienced. An important inclusion is a discussion on Key Performance Indicators ….
-Ray Beebe, Coordinator, Postgraduate Programs in Maintenance and Reliability Engineering, Monash University, Australia

Format: Hardcover
Part of my decision to purchase this book was based on the 5-star recommendation of Robert Latino (the first review listed for this book). Upon receiving the book I found that Robert Latino also happens to be an editor of the book's publisher. Perhaps this is just a coincidence.
The book contains valuable information and is presented in a logical sequence. Grammatical errors and run-on sentences make the reading a bit tiresome at times, but the overall message is sound. The book provides a good overview of coding, KPI's, and other maintenance processes. It's a good reference to have on hand while talking to CMMS vendors prior to developing your system's performance requirements.
After spending too much... I was a bit aghast when a slim, 133-page book fell out of the shipping container. Seems overpriced, content notwithstanding. If the price was $50 I would rate the book 4 stars.

Anyone considering the purchase of a CMMS system should read this text so that they know how to thoroughly research, evaluate and weigh the various features available on the CMMS market today. From the small companies to the large, this text will help you better understand what your requirements are for a CMMS system that meets YOUR needs. A CMMS system is a large investment in time and resources and should be well thought out - this book is a MUST first step in that process.
I was impressed at the practicality in the manner the book was written and the fact that it was not biased towards any one product or system. The book was obviously written by a "practitioner" not an academic or a software developer. This book is a blueprint for those that want to be proactive about their CMMS purchase and ensure that the returns will be realized rather than theorized!
