Maintenance planning and scheduling is one of the fastest and most effective investments an organization can make to improve productivity and availability. The processes in this course pave the way for planning and control of maintenance resources. Equipment reliability is increased. Waiting times, unnecessary parts and inaccurate information are eliminated. Budgeting is easier and more accurate. Maintenance tasks are as much as 50% more efficient in terms of costs and time.

This three-day course examines topics including standard work processes, job estimation and prioritization, backlog management, job plan development, work scheduling and coordination. Other topics like tracking progress and supporting reliability engineers with equipment history and root cause analysis input are also covered. Participants engage in hands-on activities that build system-independent knowledge and skills they will be able to apply immediately.

Maintenance Planning and Scheduling is a elective course in the Maintenance Management Certification program.
