Modem maintenance is continually concerned with the issue of cost. Equally, there is a need to capture tacit information from an aging workforce. The computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) is an essential part of both these aims, but can it be considered a cost-oriented measure in its own right? This paper examines the role of a CMMS in cost-oriented maintenance as both a decisionmaking tool and data repository, in the context of an Irish medical device production facility.
