course Asset and Maintenance Management at the Hogeschool Utrecht.
This document describes the research for improving all Maintenance and Asset Management
processes.
The assignment for investigation how DSBV's Maintenance and Asset Management (M&AM)
department can become a learning organization was the result of draughting the research model. It
became clear what area's were to be investigated and which important area's were to be excluded
from this research. From there the main research question was formulated:
How can a learning M&AM organization be achieved and implemented within DSBV?
The motive for this research is the need for transparent control and steering mechanism for the
M&AM department. Therefore kPI's have to be set, which resulted in the urgency to (re)design all
M&AM processes. The agreed objective for this research is to create a learning M&AM department
with continuous improvement.
This report describes all the phases of the research. An introduction will explain the background and
objectives of this research. An interesting comparison between modifying the existence and
innovation is made in chapter 2.

their comparison, resulting in a responsible selection.

techniques.
The current situation has been investigated by applying several research techniques. The actual
performance was the base whereon improvement possibilities were determined.
