Maintenance Planning, Scheduling and Work Control


The maintenance of physical assets can no longer be treated as an engineering problem. The competitive environment in which business operates requires an approach that integrates the operational objectives of the business and the lifecycle objectives of the physical assets.

The effectiveness of asset management has not improved significantly in many organizations in spite of the implementation of powerful computerized management systems. Research shows that a lack of physical asset management skills at all levels of the maintenance and operations workforce lies at the core of the problem.


By the end of this course, participants will be able to

  • Identify planning best practices and key Elements for taking action on them
  • Understand how world-class organizations solve common planning problems,
  • Evaluate your practices compared to those of others
  • Improve the use of your information and communication tools
  • Improve productivity through the use of better, more timely information
  • Create and preserve lead time in work management and use it for planning and scheduling resources
  • Improve consistency and reliability of asset information
  • Achieve more productive turnarounds
  • Optimize preventive and predictive maintenance strategies
