Maintenance Planning & Scheduling


MRC’s Maintenance Planning & Scheduling is a three-day course taught by Certified Maintenance and Reliability Professionals (CMRPs), and all sessions are held on-site with local manufacturers to enhance learning with real-life examples.  This workshop stresses hands-on exercises and teamwork in order to improve equipment effectiveness, and participants become part of a maintenance professionals’ peer group to encourage networking and the sharing of best practices.

Maintenance Planning & Scheduling – 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 the 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.
