Reliable Maintenance Planning Estimating and Scheduling Excerpt :

"This book is will be like no other that I have used, read or researched. Of course, it will cover material and ground that has been plowed before by some great authors like Joel Levitt & Don Nyman, Tim Kister & Bruce Hawkins, Doc Palmer, Michael Brown and others. This one will be about reliable maintenance planning, estimating and scheduling (RMPES) within organizations having very critical and complex equipment, extreme HSSE challenges located in environmentally sensitive locations in most cases. It will cover the complete scope of planning, estimating and scheduling but include in detail added focus a planner/scheduler can have on reliability and Continuous Reliability Improvement (CRI)"--

Maintenance Planning Coordination and Scheduling Excerpt :

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 & 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 "debate" comparing two popular approaches to the scheduling and achievement of Schedule Compliance; and a significantly expanded Material Support
