Advanced Maintenance Planning and Scheduling

In an ever-increasing competitive industries like Manufacturing, Mining, Power and Utilities and Oil & Gas, the maintenance division is typically required by management to increase asset and equipment uptime with minor breakdowns and lower maintenance cost. For this type of situation, the maintenance departments feel the lack of resources. Work orders keeps coming in, but not many get done.

A study from SMRP shows that the average “wrench time” of available maintenance personnel is only 35%. It means that on an average day, an organization’s maintenance force only spends about 3 ½ hours on completing maintenance work during 10 working hours. The remaining hours are wasted on gathering parts, travelling, meetings, breaks, and other “non-productive” activities, that have nothing to do with working on asset and equipment maintenance.

Without proper planning and scheduling, maintenance is uncoordinated, costly and ineffective, leaving the maintenance team to fail in meeting deadlines. These failures will cause constant problems for the Operations department, who will become increasingly reluctant to release equipment in the future. This can directly contribute to a higher maintenance cost, inadequate maintenance execution and rapidly deteriorating plant integrity.

Salvo Global’s 5-day online course is designed to build advanced competency in maintenance planning and scheduling. The techniques, that participants will learn in this course, will allow for effective planning and scheduling of maintenance resources. The course covers all the fundamentals and advanced methods and applications, that a suitably qualified professional would use in carrying out fully functional plant maintenance. In summary, the course provides a step-by-step practical guide to best practices of maintenance planning and scheduling, that will essentially reduce maintenance costs and deliver maximum business benefits.

This training course is based on 35 years of real-life industrial experience of the trainer in maintenance planning and scheduling.
