The Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook is the one-and-only resource that covers all this, and more. Defining "planning" as the preparatory work given to individual maintenance work orders before assigning them to specific craft persons, this never-before-available resource explains how work order planning leads to increased crew productivity-and greater overall effectiveness in just about any area of an organization's maintenance. The Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook includes: The 6 Principles of planning; The 6 principles of scheduling; Extensive example work scenarios that illustrate each of these principles; Strategies for increasing your workforce without hiring-by implementing a new maintenance planning group or redirecting an existing one; A highly useful procedure for conducting an in-house productivity study; Appendixes that summarize key concepts, identify suppliers, show complete examplet work studies and planned work orders, and provide other valuable reference sources.About the Author:
