Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Training
Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Training is one of the fastest and most effective investments an organization can make to improve productivity and availability.
The processes participants learn in this class will allow for planning and control of maintenance resources. Equipment reliability is increased. Costs and availability of maintenance stores are improved. Waiting times, unnecessary parts and inaccurate information are eliminated. Budgeting is more comfortable and more accurate. Maintenance tasks are as much as 50% more efficient concerning costs and time.
This course teaches proven processes that are fundamental to effective planning and scheduling and successful CMMS/EAMS deployment. Participants engage in hands-on activities that build systems-independent process knowledge and skills they will be able to apply immediately.
Maximizing assets availability and reliability with the optimal cost are two conflicting objectives that each maintenance department needs to achieve.
Maintenance planning and scheduling is the first step needed to assist you in achieving these objectives. However, maintenance planning and scheduling are not only about using project management software to schedule tasks.
Besides planning and scheduling activities the planner needs to ensure that all logistics are provided for. The planner will also need to be engaged in the financial evaluation of maintenance initiatives.
Once the planning is done right, the next step will be to ensure that all the work orders are executed as per the plan and in compliance with all Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) guidelines as well as company policies and procedures.
In this course, various techniques will be discussed that will assist you in due course to plan, schedule and control all your maintenance work orders for maximum effectiveness and productivity.
