You will be encouraged to interact with your instructor and peers using a variety of methods including:

WHY PLANNING & SCHEDULING

Well-planned, adequately scheduled, and effectively coordinated jobs are

  • more efficiently
  • at lower cost
  • with fewer disturbances to operations
  • with higher quality (reduce variability in your process), great safety
  • improved morale (by providing greater job satisfaction)
  • increased longevity of equipment

Moreover, a few extras like reduce parts usage and higher organizational morale (in production departments) are direct benefits.

Effective Planning and scheduling also help increase the professionalism of the maintenance effort. In short, more work is completed more promptly, thereby improving customer service. It’s simple: you reduce wasted resources and save money.

OUR PROMISE FOR THIS PROGRAM

You will be conversant with the techniques and procedures of effective Planning and scheduling. You will also learn to coordinate the maintenance schedule with production control and operations. These new understandings will lead to better job plans and more effective scheduling.
