The key to achieving maintenance and reliability excellence is nothing new. It has always been and still remains: get the basics right and make reliability a goal of the entire organization. Well-planned, effectively communicated, and properly scheduled maintenance jobs accomplish more work, more efficiently, and at lower cost. Work prepared in this fashion disturbs operations less frequently, requires less equipment downtime, and is accomplished with higher quality---which in combination equal reliability. Without proper coordination and scheduling, the crucial proactive routines optimized through other vital techniques (RCM, Predictive Maintenance, and Condition-Based Maintenance) most likely will not be performed when due. Therefore, regardless of size, every organization must prepare for effective execution of its maintenance and reliability workload. This book thus deals specifically with preparatory tasks that lead to effective utilization and application of maintenance, resources in order to achieve the level of reliability essential to an organization's business objectives. It comprehensively examines the job preparation process from job scoping and planning, to determination of material requirements, estimation of labor requirements and job duration, coordination of all involved parties, and job scheduling. Related metrics are included. In this new edition the authors have drawn from their more recent real-world experience and writings to futher clarify the posture of Planning a Scheduling within Reliability Centered Maintenance. Additionally, there is: expanded focus on the proactive culture and environment that senior management must nurture throughout the organization; a new chapter that enumerates prerequisites to effective Planning, Coordination, and Scheduling; an expanded Scheduling chapter that includes a qdebateq comparing two popular approaches to the scheduling and achievement of Schedule Compliance; and a significantly expanded Material Support chapter. This book is a vital training document for planners, an educational document for those to whom planners are responsible, and a valuable guide for everyone who interfaces with the planning and scheduling function and is dependent upon the many contributions of planning and scheduling to operational excellence. Anyone who will absorb- not just read- the contents of this book, and adhere to its prescription for planning and scheduling success will be well along the pathway to world-class maintenance and reliability.This book thus deals specifically with preparatory tasks that lead to effective utilization and application of maintenance, resources in order to achieve the level of reliability essential to an organizationa#39;s business objectives.
