Planning and Managing Maintenance



The analysis of post-industrial society brings out the spread of attention towards social phenomena that imply increasingly greater spaces for the dimension of maintenance. We refer in this connection to:
  • the transversal nature of many aspects and components of development;

  • a strong characterisation of economic and social transformation, in terms of continuous technological innovation;

  • the pervasive nature of innovation, in both social and technological terms;

  • the expansion of tertiary productive activities, which have reached the level of the services economy itself.
