The Maintenance management Framework is intended to be used by members of the GFMAM, the Maintenance and Asset Management communities to:   

  • Provide an overview of the discipline of maintenance management;   
  • Provide a structure for the building of a body of knowledge for certification schemes and qualifications in maintenance management;   
  • Provide a structure (and potentially the criteria) for assessing an organization’s maturity in maintenance management;   
  • Provide information for maintenance management knowledge requirements for assessors and auditors;    
  • Provide the capability to compare the products and services of the different GFMAM members related to maintenance management; and
  • Provide a reference for future GFMAM projects.
