About the course

Maintenance Planning and Scheduling is one of the most important elements in modern maintenance management. Maintenance Planning and Scheduling is also synonymous with control of maintenance. Further, maintenance planning and scheduling of work orders is the hub of a well-functioning maintenance organization. In order for maintenance planning and scheduling to work many other systems need to work well. Most importantly equipment inspections through preventive maintenance, technical database such as bill of materials, work order history, and standard job plans. Maintenance spare part stores have to function well, see the above illustration picture.

In a world where sustainable cost-effectiveness and productivity is paramount, your focus is on increasing company revenue by enhancing the performance of your physical assets. Are you up to the challenge? Maintenance Planning and Scheduling - also known as Routine Work Management - plays a critical part within Physical Asset Management. By understanding the fundamental processes behind this strategy you will be able to identify the essential responsibilities you need to undertake in order to initiate a Maintenance Planning, Scheduling and Control program. But Maintenance Planning and Scheduling is not effective unless a strong reliability culture exists and reliability principles are understood and applied.

This five-day course is designed to assist maintenance management personnel responsible for delivering maximum reliability and availability of equipment at the lowest possible cost. The course will present techniques designed to improve the effectiveness of maintenance management activities, to ensure that physical assets perform their required functions, operate reliably, and support corporate goals.

The sessions will focus on the modern methods and techniques on the most critical aspects of maintenance management such as Organizing maintenance resource, Selecting the right maintenance work, Analyzing failures, Setting and conducting a maintenance plan, Planning spare parts, Estimating and controlling maintenance costs, Computerizing maintenance planning and measurement operations.

The delegate will also be introduced to Reliability tools and the effect human reliability has on plant availability
