Principles

The questionnaire assesses both managerial practices of the management, such as strategy or performance management, and more operational practices such as maintenance management or operating procedures; the site is assessed "from bottom to top and from left to right".
Some initial questions allow the questionnaire to be adapted to your context; some questions or entire sections of questions will be asked depending on the answer to these criteria :

  • Does the production have a significant part of automated or semi-automated production equipment?
  • Does production have a significant part of production with manual labour?
  • Does your organization have several production sites?
  • Are there several maintenance departments / organizations, including at least one central / transverse and one or more integrated into the production teams?
  • Is the production planning process within the scope of the diagnosis?
