Effective planning and scheduling is the core of a well functioning maintenance team. Its success often relies on good integration with key systems outside of the maintenance department; especially operations, purchasing and stores.
Planning determines the what, how, duration, equipment and resource requirements for a work order. Scheduling determines when and who completes the task.
Doing these effectively can significantly increase resource efficiency, plant reliability and reduce maintenance and production costs by reducing future breakdowns.
CIWG participants are invited to identify specific issues for discussion on the day.
