    Abstract

    The product of the project, e-Famemain, is a new kind of tool for benchmarking, which is based on many years' research efforts within Finnish industry. It helps to evaluate plants' performance in operations and maintenance by making industrial plants comparable with the aid of statistical methods. The system is updated continually and automatically. It carries out automatically multivariate statistical analysis when data is entered into system, and many other statistical operations. Many studies within Finnish industry during the last ten years have revealed clear causalities between various performance indicators. In addition, these causalities should be taken into account when utilising benchmarking or forecasting indicator values e.g. for new investments. The benchmarking system consists of five sections: data input section, positioning section, locating differences section, best practices and planning section and finally statistical tables.
