Factory maintenance is a specialty even within the maintenance world. When organizations get rid of a critical mass of skilled master maintenance people, bad things often happen because of ignorance. Some departments will lose 65% or more of their skilled people through early retirement (not to mention the additional losses from downsizing) in the next few years.
