How To Turn Maintenance Problems into Profits with Planner Training

How many of these symptoms do you recognize?

Too many emergencies. Everything is Priority One.
Operating or production interruptions
Not enough maintenance people
Inventory costs too high
Can't find spares
Not enough lead time for planning
Duplicate work orders
Lost work orders. Takes too long to get repairs done
Fixing the same thing over and over
Product or service quality problems.
Equipment capability does not match quality requirements
High rework costs
Late product or service delivery due to equipment problems
Can't get preventive maintenance work done on time
Costs too high
Not enough time to get all the work done
Equipment in use, unavailable for maintenance
Deferred maintenance increasing
High maintenance employee absence or turnover
No time for skills and safety training
Inadequate facilities. Need more space
Contract costs too high
Too much overtime
Too many delays
Can't meet new regulatory requirements
Method improvements take too long to get implemented
Antiquated information system
Don't know what the backlog is
What is the proper staffing level?

The single most important factor, common to all these symptoms, is TIME. Proper planning, scheduling and control of maintenance activities results from optimum planning and control of lead TIMES, accurate backlog TIMES, scheduled maintenance shutdown TIMES and engineered standard job TIMES.

An effective, high-productivity Maintenance Planner Training Program -- based on the principle that best productivity results when each worker has a definite job to do, in a definite way and a definite time -- is the solution you should consider.

When Should I Call PNI?

Is the same problem continually resurfacing? Do you have a temporary project and do not want to permanently increase your staff?

Are politics or personal prejudice getting in the way of objective evaluation and timely solution to your concerns?

When you decide to call a consultant, you'll get the most benefit if you define the problem or concern carefully beforehand.
