Maintenance Planning and Scheduling

Most organizations with reactive maintenance do not plan to fail but they simply fail to plan and therefore they continue to fail to keep equipment available to produce products. This keeps the workforce addressing the next 4 alarm fire which ensures future equipment failures will occur and require a reactive response. How do you change this fix and repair culture? What are the steps to move to a proactive culture with high OEE and equipment availability? MET DEMAND, LLC offers a service of coaching and mentoring planner schedulers to do their job efficiently and effectively but it takes more than the planner and schedulers to change a culture. So, MET DEMAND also provides coaching to maintenance and operation management on how to justify and sustain the change to a proactive culture. By proper planning and scheduling, maintenance can increase their wrench time by almost 80% which will improve plant performance and provide time for skills development.

MET DEMAND recommends completing a maintenance assessment prior to proceeding with planning and scheduling coaching and mentoring. The assessment will identify all gaps and barriers preventing the maintenance department from achieving timely completion of corrective work and effective backlog relief. One of the key areas of an effective asset management program is a structured discipline approach to maintenance work control which is the job of maintenance planning and scheduling. MET DEMAND will coach your planner schedulers and key managers in work identification, work control, parts and material management, job plan development, planning meeting with operation planning and effective follow up on the work performed.
