Audel Managing Maintenance Planning and Scheduling
A good plan is good for business. Breakdown maintenance still accounts for much of the time maintenance workers put in. Too often, the result is lost revenue, excessive downtime, and poor-quality repairs. This convenient, practical guide shows you how to develop a comprehensive planning and scheduling effort to ensure all resources are available when they are needed. You'll discover how to: gather supportive data and build plans that will help you control maintenance costs and equipment downtime; make informed decisions about the most effective way to perform maintenance; establish solid shutdown schedules; set reasonable goals based on your budget; understand a range of estimating and scheduling methods; structure a work order system that supports your plan; allocate money, material, and labor resources for maximum productivity; use multi-skill training to its best advantage; and formulate methods to identify the right work to be performed during a shutdown.
