Just like plants, maintenance is the first or second thing cut (after people).

A lot of mangers use things like LEAN to justify it, assuming they will be gone before the plant/building falls down. My entire career of 20 plus years has been going into places and fixing it.

No accounting department will accept "Heh, we need to spend X, which won't add anything to profits, just to keep the roof on!"

Most of the time you have to wait till the roof is off before upper management accepts there is a problem.
