Free Course Video #1:

What is Maintenance Planning & Scheduling?

This video is from Lesson 2 in Module 2 of the course Implementing Maintenance Planning & Scheduling. In this lesson, we will delve into the detail what Planning and Scheduling really is. At the end of this lesson, I want to take away the following three key points;

First, I want you to know the basic elements that make up any planning & scheduling process. No matter what company you work for, in which industry, if it has an effective maintenance planning process, these basic steps will be in it.

Secondly, I want to make sure you really understand the difference between Planning & Scheduling. This is often misunderstood, but unless you truly understand this difference you will never really get the maximum return from planning & scheduling.

The last key point we will talk about in this lesson is that Planning and Scheduling is a continuous process, a process that repeats itself again and again. Something that we need to understand so that we can use it to our advantages as we progress through this course.

Please note: if you are interested in the course in one of these languages either with subtitles or with a voiceover in your native language, please contact me directly. We are working hard on getting the course translated into all these languages, but this will take some time.

This lesson is part of Module 2 of the course which is really an introduction to the topic of Maintenance Planning & Scheduling. Some of the other things we discuss in this Module are:

  • the bigger picture of why Maintenance Planning & Scheduling is important to your success
  • the basic elements of a maintenance planning & scheduling process
  • how waste occurs in maintenance
  • how we use planning & scheduling to tackle this waste and become more efficient
  • and we looked at the non-monetary benefits maintenance planning & scheduling will bring to your organisation
