This course will be hosted at a local manufacturing company and will provide the hands‐on skills and strategies to make the switch from firefighting to true Maintenance Excellence.  Participants will receive real‐life, hands‐on experience while learning the importance of effective maintenance and scheduling strategies.

A well planned maintenance job will have a positive impact on both the MTTR (Mean Time to Repair) making the maintenance organization more effective, and the OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) improving the output of the equipment.

Planning and Scheduling is the heart of a successful maintenance program. In this module you will learn the effective strategies utilized by successful maintenance organizations. You will also learn how to use data to drive the scheduling process, and the importance of a Computerized Maintenance Management System. Once you understand how the system is formed, you can then define the Key Performance Indicators to begin to measure your success.

Cost:  $990/person
