Scheduling Principals

Maintenance Scheduling: A good early step in the journey to World Class maintenance


Scheduling maintenance work will yield fast improvements in maintenance productivity. This is achieved by eliminating/reducing several issues that damage productivity in any reactive maintenance organization. Some things required for improvement include:

· Ownership of the schedule by either maintenance or operations
· Equipment locked out and ready for maintenance
· All needed materials available
· Weekly scheduling/Multi week scheduling
· Daily scheduling

Some improvement will be seen regardless of the quality or accuracy of the plan estimates.
