Well-planned, properly scheduled, and effectively communicated jobs accomplish more work, more efficiently, and at a lower cost. This work will disturb operations less frequently, and be accomplished with higher quality, greater job satisfaction, and higher organizational morale than jobs performed without proper preparation. Maintenance Planning, Scheduling Coordination focuses on and deals specifically with the preparatory tasks that lead to effective utilization and application of maintenance resources. It is a vital training document for planners, an educational document for those to whom planners are responsible, and a valuable guide for those who interface with the planning and scheduling function and are dependent upon the many contributions of planning and scheduling operational excellence.

This is a hands-on reference guide for the maintenance or reliability engineer and plant manager. 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. There are not many books out there on planning and scheduling, that go beyond the theory and show the engineer, in a hands-on way, how to use planning and scheduling techniques to improve performance, cut costs, and extend the life of their plant machinery. * The only book that takes a direct look at streamlining planning and scheduling for a Lean Manufacturing Environment * This book shows the engineer how to create and stick to effective schedules * Gives examples and templates in the back of the book for use in day-to-day scheduling and calculations
Ensure Productivity-Boosting Standards in Any Organization - With the First How-To Maintenance Planning Guide. Talk to any maintenance manager or plant manager, and they can tell you that planning and scheduling is critical to effective maintenance. Yet how many of them can name a ready-to-use, nuts-and-bolts guide that goes beyond theory, demonstrating how planning fits into maintenance, what principles make it work, and exactly how planning is done? The Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook is the one-and-only resource that covers all this, and more. Defining "planning" as the preparatory work given to individual maintenance work orders before assigning them to specific craft persons, this never-before-available resource explains how work order planning leads to increased crew productivity-and greater overall effectiveness in just about any area of an organization's maintenance. The Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook includes: The 6 Principles of planning; The 6 principles of scheduling; Extensive example work scenarios that illustrate each of these principles; Strategies for increasing your workforce without hiring-by implementing a new maintenance planning group or redirecting an existing one; A highly useful procedure for conducting an in-house productivity study; Appendixes that summarize key concepts, identify suppliers, show complete examplet work studies and planned work orders, and provide other valuable reference sources.
The fully updated industry-standard guide to maintenance planning and scheduling Written by a Certified Maintenance and Reliability Professional (CMRP) with more than three decades of experience, this thoroughly revised resource provides proven planning and scheduling strategies that will take any maintenance organization to the next level of performance. The book covers the accuracy of time estimates, the level of detail in job plans, creating schedules, staging material, utilizing a CMMS, and more, all designed for increasing your workforce without hiring. Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook, Third Edition features major additions to the business case for planning and scheduling, new case studies, an expanded chapter on KPIs with sample calculations, a new chapter on successful outage management, and a new appendix illustrating how to easily conduct an in-house productivity study. New discussions reveal how the principles of planning and scheduling closely follow the timeless management principles of Dr. W. Edwards Deming and Dr. Peter F. Drucker. This comprehensive guide delivers the experience, advice, and know-how necessary to establish a world-class maintenance operation. Detailed coverage of: The business case for the benefit of planning Planning principles Scheduling principles Dealing with reactive maintenance Basic planning Advance scheduling Daily scheduling and supervision Forms and resources The computer in maintenance How planning interacts with preventive maintenance, predictive maintenance, and project work How to control planning and use associated KPIs for planning and overall maintenance Shutdown, turnaround, overhaul, and outage management Conclusion: start planning

Business & Economics by Matthew Dixon,Brent Adamson
Gibt es ein Rezept für Verkaufserfolg? Die meisten Führungskräfte im Vertrieb verweisen hier zuerst auf eine gute Kundenbeziehung – und sie liegen falsch damit. Die besten Verkäufer versuchen nicht nur einfach eine gute Beziehung zu ihren Kunden aufzubauen – sie stellen primär die Denkweisen und Überzeugungen ihrer Kunden in Frage. Basierend auf einer umfassenden Studie mit mehreren tausend Vertriebsmitarbeitern in unterschiedlichen Branchen und Ländern, zeigt "The Challenger Sale", dass das klassische vertriebliche Vorgehen mit dem Aufbau von Beziehungen immer weniger funktioniert, je komplexer die Lösungen sind. Doch wie unterscheiden sich Fertigkeiten, Verhaltensweisen, Wissen und Einstellung der Spitzenverkäufer vom Durchschnitt? Die Studie zeigt deutlich, dass die Verhaltensweisen, die den Challenger so erfolgreich machen, replizierbar und strukturiert vermittelbar sind. Die Autoren erklären, wie fast jeder Verkäufer, ausgestattet mit den richtigen Werkzeugen, diesen Ansatz erfolgreich umsetzen kann und so höhere Kundenbindung und letztendlich mehr Wachstum generiert. Das Buch ist eine Quelle der Inspiration und hilft dem Leser, sein Profil als Vertriebler zu analysieren und gezielt zu verändern, um am Ende kreativer und besser zu sein.
