Maintenance Planning and Scheduling is a four
day course which defines the core principles of maintenance management, such as
failure behaviour and maintenance tactics and tasks.
Delegates learn how to use Failure Modes and
Effects Analysis (FMEA) to determine planned maintenance requirements.
Thereafter, they will learn to scope a job to
determine the requirements and convert it into a comprehensive maintenance
Delegates will learn how to develop systems to
manage different types of maintenance tasks and their documentation and ensure
that equipment history is available.
Long term and short term manpower planning is

This is followed by shutdown planning and the
course ends with defining the roles of the maintenance planner and other role
players in the planning of maintenance.
