Reader review(s):

Maintenance and the Net, June 8, 2001
The Internet already has maintenance and manufacturing directories of installers and vendors; drawings, field modifications, and manuals; e-mail; FAQs; library holdings access; news and user groups; online vendor catalogs; parts information and purchasing; software changes; technical bulletins and help; and used equipment and parts. Joel Levitt goes on to say that any Original Equipment Manufacturer webless in the second millennium will lose a lot of business: finding manufacturers these days means using search engines and visiting the superindustrial and trade magazine sites. There are already tens of thousands of equipment and OEM sites, findable by AltaVista or Excite if you want all the newsgroups and web searched, by spider sites if you need specific equipment model numbers, and by Yahoo if you need a major manufacturing homepage or web site. In fact, the yearly fee for a web site pays for a single full-page ad in a leading maintenance magazine. Also, the government originally set up the Internet for communication and research, which are maintenance and manufacturing concerns, and it is now setting the example with powerful, quality maintenance-oriented Commerce, Defense, Library of Congress and NASA sites. So THE INTERNET GUIDE FOR MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT completes the picture for the author's HANDBOOK OF MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT and MANAGING FACTORY MAINTENANCE and for Terry Wireman's WORLD CLASS MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT.
