Reap the rewards of improved maintenance processes.

Effective maintenance planning, scheduling and maintenance work management is critical if control is to be gained over maintenance activities. Yet implementing effective planning and scheduling processes is not an easy task, particularly if you are already operating in a reactive operational environment.

How we can support you

Working with you, we can help you to reduce costs and improve the productivity of your maintenance workforce and your equipment by:

  • Clearly defining maintenance work management, planning and scheduling processes, and documenting these in easily understood flow chart formats
  • Working with your people to gain consensus and ownership regarding these processes
  • Providing training at all levels of your organisation to ensure that everyone understands, not only the detail of the processes, but why they need to be followed
  • Working with your production and operations managers and supervisors to ensure that they are equally committed to making the maintenance work management and planning and scheduling processes work
  • Providing on-the-job coaching and mentoring for your planners, supervisors and tradespeople as the processes are implemented
  • Assisting you in refining and improving the processes, and overcoming barriers to their implementation
  • Monitoring compliance, and measuring the benefits obtained from more effective maintenance planning and scheduling

We can support your maintenance planners and schedulers.

We would love to have the opportunity to understand the challenges that you are facing and help you to achieve your goals.

An obligation-free discussion with one of our consultants is a great place to start, and you may even receive some tips or advice that you can take back to your workplace and implement straight away.
