PSC Requirements

To earn a Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Certification (PSC), candidates must complete four courses and successfully pass the certification exam within three years.

Maintenance Planning and Scheduling

Maintenance planning and scheduling is one of the fastest and most effective investments an organization can make to improve productivity and availability. The processes in this course pave the way for planning and control of maintenance resources. Equipment reliability is increased. Waiting times, unnecessary parts and inaccurate information are eliminated. Budgeting is easier and more accurate. Maintenance tasks are as much as 50% more efficient in terms of costs and time.

Maintenance Planning and Scheduling examines topics including a proactive work management process, job estimation and prioritization, backlog management, job plan development, work scheduling and coordination, tracking progress, and supporting reliability engineers with valuable equipment history and root cause analysis input.

The course content addresses all aspects of the maintenance planning and scheduling function from job scoping through work package development to backlog management and into performance metrics. The course uses an optimum blend of instructor lecture and real world practical exercises. The training is tailored to address everyday issues confronted by maintenance personnel. Through the lecture format participants are encouraged to share specific experiences and difficulties. Subsequently, participants are paired with their peers and practical exercises are used to demonstrate and provide insight on key concepts, principles, and practices. Exercises include crew leveling, work program and backlog calculations, job plan development, scheduling, and critical path analysis. Teamwork and communication are emphasized heavily during the training. The ensuing interaction is powerful in its education and training results.

In this online programme, you will learn how to:

  • Outline a proactive work management process
  • Calculate work management performance metrics
  • Develop a comprehensive “standard” job plan
  • Apply work planning best practices: Identifying work and submitting work orders, Prioritize work using equipment criticality (RIME), Backlog management, Estimating work, Effective job plans, Job kitting
  • Summarize requirements for work management support systems: Equipment data and history, Work order system, Standard job plans and job libraries, Bill of materials, Technical library
  • Build a schedule using best practices: Master schedule, Schedule constraints, Schedule balance and leveling, Coordination meetings
  • Develop key partnerships needed for effective maintenance planning and scheduling
  • Differentiate maintenance types and how they impact the planning/scheduling efforts

Who Should Attend Training

Successful maintenance planning and scheduling programs require the disciplined application of proven processes and interdepartmental partnerships. It is important for departments that are influenced and impacted by the processes to understand the processes. People in the following roles should participate in this training:

  • Maintenance Planner/Schedulers
  • Production Supervisors
  • Storeroom Managers
  • Maintenance Managers
  • Operation Coordinators
  • Maintenance Supervisors
  • Plant Engineers
