The critical objectives of the maintenance planning and scheduling section are to ensure assets availability and reliability at the lowest cost. The planning and scheduling activities in the maintenance department are the reference points for all work orders. Planned wrongly and the whole maintenance management processes will be negatively affected. Work orders created by maintenance planners and properly executed will improve the effectiveness of the maintenance department.
The role of the maintenance planner is to develop the right work orders taking into consideration all the logistical requirements and constraints. Along with excellent planning and scheduling skills, this job requires interacting with many departments. The maintenance theories and principles as well as best practices that will be discussed during this course will equip the maintenance planner to achieve the critical objectives of the maintenance department.
The course uses a mix of interactive and hands-on techniques. Beside the brief presentations by the consultant and the participants, there will be many individual and group exercises based on actual maintenance work related scenarios.
