Welcome to Day 2 of the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling for World Class Reliability and Maintenance Performance 3-Day Training Course. I hope that you enjoyed Day 1 and found the maintenance and reliability concepts it contained useful.
Day 1 covered the vital concepts of industrial asset management and maintenance that a Maintenance Planner needs to be aware of so they can align their duties and output with the aims of the enterprise. If you work in the Maintenance discipline you need to know the strategies that deliver equipment reliability and best production equipment performance. A Maintenance Planner needs to understand those concepts and how their role uses them to produce good maintenance results.
Day 2 and part of Day 3 focus on the methods, routines and techniques of maintenance planning. You learn about setting up the necessary work system, processes and practices for doing great maintenance planning. We will cover the equivalent requirements for maintenance scheduling during Day 3 of the course.
It is wise to remember what the sage Confucius said about planning over 2500 year ago, “In all things success depends on previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure.” Confucius warns us that thorough planning is an important element in every success.
As you do the Maintenance Planning role remember that you are part of a business that wants to build a great company. Maintenance Planning is a foundation requirement to ensure maintenance work is done successfully, right first time. A Maintenance Planner’s role is to prepare work packs in a timely manner for the effective, efficient and safe performance of maintenance work.
