Participate in maintenance benchmarking survey

By Plant Engineering Staff March 24, 2006

Klaus Blache from General Motors Corporation will conduct a maintenance benchmarking survey modeled after a similar study done several years ago while he was chairman of the Society of Maintenance and Reliability Professionals.

The purpose of the study is to compile current maintenance benchmarking information and viewpoints by repeating parts of two past studies done (1991 & 1997). Blache conducted the earlier analysis, and these results will be compared to looks at trends.

Survey participants also will be given the resulting report. As before, the survey uses ratios and percents for anonymity and no company names are ever mentioned. A summary of the findings will be published in PLANT ENGINEERING magazine and in Maintenance Connection.

To participate, download a PDF version of the survey, which can be found at under the‘In The News’ section. It should be filled out, scanned and emailed to .
