The PPM programme presupposes `thinking big'; big is beautiful. This means that where, for instance, all windows but one in a house are deemed by a surveyor as requiring early replacement, it makes sense to replace all the windows at that time. What if the one window, the `exception', had been replaced already and quite recently? Perhaps the decision on whether to replace that one again now will be taken in anticipation of how many `exceptional' windows there may be on a particular estate; how much money, if any, will be saved by omitting the window from the programme.

Planned Preventive Maintenance Prevails 39 Resource intensity of PPM: simple but heavy on resources A significant virtue of PPM programmes is their relative simplicity of preparation and operation, though that is bought at a price of high resource use. Expensive professional time is required to execute the requisite condition surveys and to turn the millions of data items into a programme that is simple to understand and implement.

This may allow either for `education' of the occupant about how better to use the building or to justify why a particular repair action is proposed; it may also allow for meaningful discussion about best timing, consequential disruption, etc. Against this, though, must be placed some reservation about surveyors' technical skills as reported by Hollis & Bright (1999). It may be that surveyors' time would be best invested in devising effective decision support systems. Software packages exist that are claimed to provide such `maintenance solutions', with icons, drop-down menus, prepared scripts with questions to ask, and decision trees that through a structured `interview' arrive at the `right answer'.
