Managing Planning and Scheduling
In Managing Planning and Scheduling, participants build a work management program based on Reliability Excellence best practices. The course is designed for a Lead Planner or Department Manager to establish a proactive work management program or to transform an existing program into an effective, results-producing department that positively impacts maintenance costs, plant reliability measures and employee morale.
Managing Planning and Scheduling examines topics like designing a work management program strategy, developing standard processes and work, establishing program measures, managing staff development, and planning program improvement. Learners will walk away with a solid foundation for an effective maintenance work management program.
