Executive Summary



Technology will definitely be one area that can help come up with breakthroughs and discoveries in maintenance organization structure. In the past, maintenance was organized in such a way that it would prevent duplication of support staff, balance out skill deficiencies and improve command and control of the entire effort. Advances in technology will make the whole centralized/decentralized argument moot. Technology enables the department to run with the benefits of both the centralized and decentralized modes. Think about how would you design a response system with the different technologies available? The possibilities are numerous.
