NEW ARTICLE: How to Prioritise Maintenance Work Orders?

 I have recently received a question from one of our newsletter subscribers.  He writes:

“Firstly, I want to say, I really enjoy reading your articles and enjoy building the knowledge that those articles bring.

My role has transitioned from maintenance supervisor to maintenance planner. In my new role, I have the responsibility of reducing the outstanding work orders in our CMMS whilst prioritising the new work orders being generated.

What are some guidelines I can use for prioritizing work orders to be able to do the correct work now? The old system relied on personnel entering their work orders into the system and prioritizing the WOs as they see fit. This is not realistic as everyone sees their WOs as [highest] priority.”

This is a great question, and one that this article will attempt to answer.
