Supplement your maintenance capability with new processes and perspectives.
If organisations are to move toward an asset management environment with a focus on maximising equipment life, then the planner must be seen more as a whole of life Asset Management Planner rather than the Maintenance Planner of old. This course is the starting point for that transition.
The role of Maintenance Planner has changed dramatically over the last 10 years with the introduction of complex CMMS and ERP systems that promise to make life easier. While the introduction of these new and improved systems has increased our ability to gather and disseminate information, most planners and maintenance managers are starting to understand that their lives have become anything but easier. The quality of the outputs from these systems is reliant on the quality of the inputs and these can only be assured if we have a robust management system to support maintenance, engineering and operations.
More and more the maintenance planner is seen as the champion of “the system,” but what has been done to improve their understanding of the intricacies of asset management in this new technological age?
The answer is often very little. To break the CMMS cycle of “rubbish in, rubbish out,” we must develop the personnel in this key role and turn them into asset management planning champions. To do this they must have an understanding of asset management fundamentals and where maintenance fits into the mix. They must be able to manipulate the CMMS and use other electronic media to improve the quality of the inputs which in turn will improve the quality of the outputs.
