Overview

Many readers already regard the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook as the chief authority for establishing effective maintenance planning and scheduling in the real world. The second edition adds new sections and further develops many existing discussions to make the handbook more comprehensive and helpful. In addition to practical observations and tips on such topics as creating a weekly schedule, staging parts and tools, and daily scheduling, this second edition features a greatly expanded CMMS appendix which includes discussion of critical cautions for implementation, patches, major upgrades, testing, training, and interfaces with other company software. Readers will also find a timely appendix devoted to judging the potential benefits and risks of outsourcing plant work. A new appendix provides guidance on the "people side" of maintenance planning and work execution. The second edition also has added a detailed aids and barriers analysis that improves the appendix on setting up a planning group. The new edition also features "cause maps" illustrating problems with a priority systems and schedule compliance. These improvements and more continue to make the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook a maintenance classic.
