Cost savings from performance‐based maintenance contracting

    Ad Straub Affiliation

Abstract

New procurement approaches combined with performance‐based building approaches should reduce costs, but empirical qualitative and quantitative studies are lacking. Performance‐based maintenance contracts give maintenance suppliers incentives to improve their way of working. Innovative, cost‐effective solutions that meet the performance criteria can be achieved, especially if the principle of whole‐life costing is being adopted. Indirect cost savings are expected as well. It enables maintenance contractors to assume responsibility for certain activities for which they are better equipped to perform than their clients. A calculation model was developed that calculates the net present value of the direct (product) and indirect (transaction) costs at project level for a competitive maintenance tendering approach and for performance‐based maintenance contracts. The findings show that performance‐based maintenance contracts reduce both direct and indirect costs compared to a competitive tendering approach. Essential preconditions are an early supplier involvement and longer term contracts, giving opportunities for maintenance product and maintenance process improvements.

Nauji pirkimo būdai, derinami su subalansuotos statybos būdais, turetu mažinti išlaidas, tačiau trūksta empiriniu kokybiniu ir kiekybiniu tyrimu. Veiklos rezultatais pagristos priežiūros su tar tys skatina priežiūros paslaugas siūlančias bendroves tobulinti savo darbo būdus. Galimi no vatoriški, taupūs sprendimai, tenkinantys rezultatyvios veiklos kriterijus, ypač taikant viso naudojimo laiko išlaidu (angl. whole‐life costing) principa. Tikimasi sumažinti ir netiesiogines išlaidas. Priežiūra atliekantiems rangovams tai leidžia prisiimti atsakomybe už tam tikra veikla, kuriai vykdyti jie turi daugiau priemoniu nei ju klientai. Sukurtas skaičiavimo mo de lis, kuri taikant apskaičiuojama viso projekto tiesioginiu (produktas) ir netiesioginiu (sandoris) sa nau du dabartine grynoji verte (NPV), kai vykdomas priežiūros darbu pirkimo konkursas ir kai sudaromos veiklos rezultatais pagristos priežiūros sutartys. Rezultatai rodo, kad, lyginant su pirkimo konkursais, veiklos rezultatais pagristos priežiūros sutartys mažina ir tiesiogines, ir netiesiogines išlaidas. Būtinos salygos ‐ itraukti i priežiūros vykdyma tiekeja ankstyvuosiuose etapuose ir sutartis sudaryti ilgesniam terminui, suteikiant galimybiu tobulinti produkta ir priežiūros procesa.
