About this Training Course 

A key component of production cost is maintenance and the key role of maintenance is to guarantee the reliability of the production. The crucial element for ensuring that maintenance is cost effectively delivered is the planning and scheduling of maintenance tasks.

Given the huge impact maintenance management can have on production output, as well as the increasing tendency for maintenance departments to be asked to do “more with less”, it is essential that maintenance professionals strive toward the implementation of best practices in maintenance planning.

Ron Moore, author of Making Common Sense Common Practice, quotes benchmarking studies that show that reactive maintenance correlates strongly with poor plant or facility performance. Yet many companies are still operating in this fire-fighting mode.

A proactive approach means that we regain control of the work we do and it’s timing. This leads to improved safety and availability. This course provides a methodology for: pre-planning routine maintenance tasks generated by predictive and preventive maintenance programs, planning tasks to recover from malfunction or breakdown and a strategy to allow us to cope with random failure. The course will cover the essential steps we need to take to plan and schedule our maintenance work properly. That will help maximise the proactive content and further our goal of achieving best-in-class performance.

In summary, this 3-day intensive training course will help maintenance professionals to:

  • Develop the ability to produce logical and comprehensive maintenance plans using a systematic and structured approach.
  • Produce work schedules that optimise Plant Availability.
  • Enable high productivity and effectiveness of the workforce by proper work preparation.
  • Plan the ‘unexpected’; managing trips, breakdowns and other unwanted incidents, smoothly and efficiently.

Maintenance Managers, Engineers, Planners, Schedulers, Supervisors and Senior Technicians.
