This half day workshop will cover the basics of planning and scheduling but with a down to earth approach: Why some organizations fail when they deploy planning and scheduling processes and others have tremendous success? Why do a majority of planners complain they don’t have enough time to plan? We will explain what you typically need to demonstrate in order to sell the benefits of planning and scheduling to your senior management. Examine the various steps of the planning process (work Identification, planning, scheduling, work execution, close out and review) with examples coming from organizations that do perform in planning and scheduling during this workshop. As well we look at the roles and responsibilities of the maintenance planner and what are the realistic expectations for this position.
