Work Management Identification and Scheduling

Training duration: 1 half-day session recommended. This live online course is instructor-led.

Training description:

Participants will study the concepts used in maintenance planning of standard work and projects in industrial applications. Training includes work identification concepts, and maintenance strategies that feed the planning process. Each course module will include discussions, case studies, and interactive exercises for participants to demonstrate understanding of the concepts covered.

Introduction to maintenance identification, planning, and scheduling:

Students will learn the importance of early work identification, planning and scheduling. Scheduling and project action plans for scope, time, cost, quality, and operating timetables will also be covered. We will introduce the distinct and interconnected aspects of managing and scheduling standard work.

Work management 03: Work ID - Identifying work early

Students will learn the role of work identification and how machines and components fail. The student will also learn why it is essential to identify work in the initial stages of a failure mode. The student will understand how work is identified based on results from various human senses, preventive maintenance, and predictive maintenance activities. We will also discuss equipment criticality.

Work management 04: Work ID - Request process
