About VDM

“What is actually the added value of maintenance?”

This is a frequently posed question in boardrooms across the world. Even though maintenance is often critically important, few maintenance managers are able to answer this question convincingly. Especially when they are asked to express the benefits in terms of economic added value or shareholder value, the language increasingly being spoken in corporate boardrooms.

For this reason Mainnovation developed the Value Driven Maintenance® methodology. Many leading maintenance organizations over the world have applied VDM with impressive results. VDM builds a bridge between traditional maintenance philosophies and managing by shareholder value. Not only does VDM simplify the boardroom discussion, it also shows that far from being a cost center, maintenance is actually a major economic value within the overall business performance.

With VDM the maintenance department can quickly become a professional maintenance organization that adds value to the overall business performance. Under the VDM methodology, this is referred to as the Most Valuable Maintenance Organization (MVMO). VDM shows where the economic added value of maintenance lies, using a quantitative control model and industry specific benchmarks. To fully utilize the value potential, Mainnovation has developed and implemented work processes and organizations based on well known best practices such as RCM, TPM and RBI, branch specific bench-marks and leading EAM systems.
