Improving O&M with Design for Maintainability

About this session:

Accounting for as much as 80 percent of a building's life cycle costs, O&M expenses often reach three times a building's initial construction costs. But what if those costs could be alleviated – and performance optimized – by encouraging facility professionals to provide input during the design phase of the project? Attend this session to learn about Design for Maintainability, a methodology that links operations and maintenance goals to the design process, and how it can be applied to any organization.

1. Review the two primary approaches to the Design for Maintainability methodology
2. Learn key requirements for successfully implementing DfM at your facility
3. Identify key participants in the DfM initiative
4. Discuss DfM benefits with senior leadership
