Certified Maintenance and Reliability Professional, Life Cycle Engineering

. A hands-on reference guide for the maintenance or reliability engineer and plant manager
. Shows the engineer how to create and stick to effective schedules
. Gives examples and templates that engineers can copy and use in their day-to-day activities

As the third volume in the "Life Cycle Engineering” series, this book takes the guiding principles of Lean Manufacturing and Maintenance and applies these concepts to everyday planning and scheduling tasks allowing engineers to keep their equipment running smoothly, while decreasing downtime. The authors offer invaluable advice on the effective use of work orders and schedules and how they fit into the overall maintenance plan.

Maintenance Planning and Scheduling emphasizes the importance of planning and scheduling for the maintenance of plant equipment. Keeping equipment and machinery maintained properly not only insures the longevity of the equipment, but also reduces company costs spent on new, replacement equipment and repair. Thus this book enables the engineer and maintenance professional to create and maintain effective schedules and thereby decrease overall costs and increase plant efficiency.

Excellent book, but needs to be read after you have read fully Doc Palmers Maintenance, Planning and Scheduling Handbook 2nd edition.
