Planning and scheduling is one of the most important activities to increase the efficiency in a maintenance organization and to reach “Maintenance in World Class.” Surveys show that planning increases the productivity of work performance by as much as 77%. However, during recent years planning and scheduling have been cut down and are becoming a “lost competence.” Nowadays, service technicians are often responsible for both preparation and execution of their work tasks. To make it work well, the service technician needs to communicate and cooperate in the right way with schedulers, work management, and Production/Operations. This requires a clear and communicated work process among the personnel involved, and not least, knowledge and skills necessary for planning and scheduling of maintenance job plans!
