Maintenance planning, scheduling and work control is the most important function of a maintenance department but for many years, industry experts have pointed to the low productivity levels in maintenance departments of many companies around the world. Several studies and survey results reported at major Maintenance and Reliability conferences have confirmed this. A maintenance department can be far more productive in so many ways, becoming proactive instead of responding to emergencies like fire departments. Maintenance departments should be performing preventive and condition-based maintenance tasks, participating in process improvement projects, and working on capital improvement initiatives. Maintenance workers can upgrade their skills, train others, and educate operators to run the assets properly to minimize errors. In essence, good planning and scheduling avoids delays and minimizes wait time, other wasteful activities, and non-productive work. Maintenance Planning, Scheduling and Work Control is a disciplined approach both for utilizing maintenance resources effectively and for executing maintenance tasks  efficiently. This is accomplished through:

  • Defining and clarifying the right work 
  •  Prioritizing work 
  • Developing the work sequence and steps to complete the task 
  • Identifying necessary tools, materials, and skills sets 
  • Assuring on-schedule availability of materials and assets 
  • Scheduling the work to be done with agreement from production on scheduled time 
  • Ensuring details of completed work are documented in CMMS

Our highly interactive Maintenance Planning, Scheduling & Work Control training course is designed to provide management and staff with essential maintenance management skills, gain a clear understanding of their roles, and work more effectively within a team environment.

  • Understand maintenance as a key business function
  • Understand the objectives and purpose of pro-active failure management
  • Learn how reliability influences not only plant output, but also improves health, safety and environmental performance, resource optimisation and cost improvement
  • Identify planning and scheduling best practices and how these will contribute to work quality and reliability improvement
  • Create and preserve forward work and use it for planning and scheduling resources
  • Use suitable performance indicators and management reports to perform regular analysis of maintenance performance, control maintenance resources and costs, and drive continuous improvement

Delegates should represent a wide range of personnel in the organization who are involved in, or dependent on, effective maintenance planning, scheduling and work control. These should include:

  • Maintenance and Operations Professionals
  • Maintenance Engineers and Supervisors
  • Maintenance Planners, Schedulers and Work Preparers
  • Key Operations Supervisors
  • CMMS Administrator or Key Users
  • Key Maintenance Support Assistants
  • Other stakeholders in the Maintenance Function

Facilitated by an experienced maintenance specialist, our Maintenance Planning, Scheduling & Work Control training course will be conducted as a highly interactive work session (as opposed to lectures), encouraging participants to share their own experiences and apply the training course material to real-life situations. Training course size will be limited to 30 delegates in order to stimulate discussion and efficiency of subject coverage.

Each delegate will receive an extensive reference manual, as well as case studies, while worked out solutions will be handed out to the delegates on conclusion of group discussions. Throughout the training course, delegates will be encouraged to identify what they can do to enhance Maintenance Planning, Scheduling & Work Control in their organizations.


Industry is moving away from reactive (“fix-it-when-it-breaks”) management into predictive, productive management (“anticipating, planning, and fix-it-before-it-breaks”). This evolution requires well-planned and executed actions on several fronts.
