Maintenance Planning & Scheduling

800.00

Maintenance Planning and Scheduling is aimed at maintenance personnel as they balance the need for cost effective maintenance delivery with the requirement to deliver availability and reliability of the maintained plant itself. Production is planned and scheduled and to optimise costs and non-productive time, maintenance too must be planned, scheduled and (key) integrated with the production schedule.

Description

Dates: May 14th, 15th and 21st, 22nd, 09:00 – 13:00

Location: Online

Cost: €800

CPD: 14 hours

Fail to plan; plan to fail – An old adage but as true in today’s competitive market where companies are under increasing pressure to produce higher quality goods and services at lower costs, as it has ever been. A key component of the overall cost of manufacturing is maintenance and the key role of maintenance is to deliver availability and reliability of the plant. Production is planned and scheduled and to optimise costs and non-productive time, maintenance too must be planned, scheduled and (key) integrated with the production schedule. Cost effective maintenance delivery is the result of effective planning, scheduling and associated work controls.
