Maintenance planning and scheduling is the hub for achieving a cost-effective maintenance organization. Planning and scheduling is the cornerstone to enable excellence in uptime, preventive maintenance, stores, utilization of craftspeople, maintenance cost control, coordination of maintenance schedules with production schedules, and involves engineering in reliability and more.  Past studies have shown that most companies do not perform maintenance planning effectively, which negatively impacts work effectiveness, wrench time, equipment uptime, equipment reliability, and cost.  Industry is experiencing the pressure of rising costs, foreign competition, and the need to improve work force productivity. The purpose of this event is to identify and learn how to implement processes that allow for planning and control of maintenance resources.
