Modern Maintenance Technology



The maintenance of physical assets can no longer be treated as an 'engineering problem.' The competitive environment in which business operates requires an approach that integrates the operational objectives of the business and the life-cycle objectives of the physical assets.

The effectiveness of asset management has not improved significantly in many organizations in spite of the implementation of powerful computerized management systems. Research shows that a lack of physical asset management skills at all levels of the maintenance and operations workforce lies at the core of the problem.


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 Managers
  • Maintenance Supervisors
  • Personnel designated as planners, or identified to become planners
  • Key leaders from each Maintenance craft
  • Key Operations Supervisors
  • Materials Management Managers/Supervisors
  • CMMS Administrator or key users
  • Key Maintenance support assistants
  • Other stakeholders in the Work Planning Function


Leading industrial organizations are evolving 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.

  • Identify planning best practices and key elements for taking action on them
  • Understand how world-class organizations solve common planning problems,
  • Evaluate your practices compared to those of others
  • Improve the use of your information and communication tools
  • Improve productivity through use of better, more timely information
  • Create and preserve lead-time in work management and use it for planning and scheduling resources
  • Improve consistency and reliability of asset information
  • Achieve more productive turnarounds
  • Optimize preventive and predictive maintenance strategies


Facilitated by an experienced maintenance specialist, our program will be conducted as a highly interactive work session (as opposed to lectures), encouraging participants to share their own experiences and apply the program material to real-life situations. Program 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 program, delegates will be encouraged to identify what they can do to enhance Maintenance Planning, Scheduling and Work Control in their organizations.


The program provides the delegate with study material on the basic principles of effective maintenance planning, as well as proven techniques for the development of an effective maintenance plan, the planning and control of maintenance work, shutdown management, and management reporting and analysis.
