This is a free sample from the course Implementing Maintenance Planning & Scheduling (PS100).

Key points

Although this is the fairly long lesson, there is only a single objective. It is for you to know, and understand, the 6 Principles of Maintenance Planning. These principles outline what your organization must put in placeto achieve an effective maintenance planning process.​​

If you fail to implement these principles, your planning process will not deliver the results you need. Your planning process will fail.​

The Planning Principles that I will talk through this lesson are very much based on the Maintenance Planting & Schedule Handbook written by Richard ‘Doc‘ Palmer. His book is probably the closest thing to an industry standard for Planning and Scheduling that I know of. It is a great reference book, and it’s now updated to the 4th edition, but it is not a quick read with over 900 pages!

To be clear what I teach in this lesson about Maintenance Planning Principles is aligned to the principles outlined in Doc Palmer’s book, but I have made some changes based on my own practical experience from the last 20+ years.
