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.
The key to achieving maintenance and reliability excellence is nothing new. It has always been and still remains: get the basics right and make reliability a goal of the entire organization. Well-planned, effectively communicated, and properly scheduled maintenance jobs accomplish more work, more efficiently, and at lower cost. Work prepared in this fashion disturbs operations less frequently, requires less equipment downtime, and is accomplished with higher quality---which in combination equal reliability. Without proper coordination and scheduling, the crucial proactive routines optimized through other vital techniques (RCM, Predictive Maintenance, and Condition-Based Maintenance) most likely will not be performed when due. Therefore, regardless of size, every organization must prepare for effective execution of its maintenance and reliability workload. This book thus deals specifically with preparatory tasks that lead to effective utilization and application of maintenance, resources in order to achieve the level of reliability essential to an organization's business objectives. It comprehensively examines the job preparation process from job scoping and planning, to determination of material requirements, estimation of labor requirements and job duration, coordination of all involved parties, and job scheduling. Related metrics are included. In this new edition the authors have drawn from their more recent real-world experience and writings to futher clarify the posture of Planning & Scheduling within Reliability Centered Maintenance. Additionally, there is: expanded focus on the proactive culture and environment that senior management must nurture throughout the organization; a new chapter that enumerates prerequisites to effective Planning, Coordination, and Scheduling; an expanded Scheduling chapter that includes a "debate" comparing two popular approaches to the scheduling and achievement of Schedule Compliance; and a significantly expanded Material Support chapter. This book is a vital training document for planners, an educational document for those to whom planners are responsible, and a valuable guide for everyone who interfaces with the planning and scheduling function and is dependent upon the many contributions of planning and scheduling to operational excellence. Anyone who will absorb- not just read- the contents of this book, and adhere to its prescription for planning and scheduling success will be well along the pathway to world-class maintenance and reliability.
Many readers already regard the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook as the chief authority for establishing effective maintenance planning and scheduling in the real world. The second edition adds new sections and further develops many existing discussions to make the handbook more comprehensive and helpful. In addition to practical observations and tips on such topics as creating a weekly schedule, staging parts and tools, and daily scheduling, this second edition features a greatly expanded CMMS appendix which includes discussion of critical cautions for implementation, patches, major upgrades, testing, training, and interfaces with other company software. Readers will also find a timely appendix devoted to judging the potential benefits and risks of outsourcing plant work. A new appendix provides guidance on the "people side" of maintenance planning and work execution. The second edition also has added a detailed aids and barriers analysis that improves the appendix on setting up a planning group. The new edition also features "cause maps" illustrating problems with a priority systems and schedule compliance. These improvements and more continue to make the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook a maintenance classic.

The overall goal of this book is to introduce algorithms for improving the economic posture of a utility company in a restructured power system by promoting cost-effective maintenance schedules. Today, cutting operations and maintenance (O&M) costs and preserving service reliability) are among the top priorities for managers ofutility companies. Preventive maintenance is perhaps the single largest controllable cost ofa utility2 operation. It is perceived that a careful planning and a good coordination among self-interested entities in a restructured power system are essential to achieving an optimal trade-off between the cost ofmaintenance and the service reliability. Traditional maintenance programs in verticall/ integrated utilities relied heavily on time-directed maintenance and manufacturer recommendations. This book offers a logical alternative to traditional electric utility maintenance practices and a basis for maintenance decisions. The book is organized as follows. Chapter I reviews various issues related to the power system operation and presents the role of restructuring in maintenance scheduling. In Chapter II, fundamental topics related to linear and nonlinear systems are reviewed. The duality in linear programming is discussed and integer programming is reviewed. Benders decomposition, Lagrangian relaxation, and Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition are presented. Several examples are given to demonstrate the applications ofdifferent methods. The formulation ofreactive power optimization is discussed which will be used again in Chapter VII.
Sind wir nicht alle davon überzeugt, dass wir am besten mit äußeren Anreizen wie Geld und Prestige oder durch "Zuckerbrot und Peitsche" zu motivieren sind? "Alles falsch", sagt Daniel H. Pink in seinem provokanten und zukunftsweisenden Buch. Das Geheimnis unseres persönlichen Erfolges ist das zutiefst menschliche Bedürfnis, unser Leben selbst zu bestimmen, zu lernen, Neues zu erschaffen und damit unsere Lebensqualität und unsere Welt zu verbessern. Daniel H. Pink enthüllt die Widersprüche zwischen dem, was die Wissenschaft weiß, und dem, was die Wirtschaft tut – und wie genau dies jeden Aspekt unseres Lebens beeinflusst. Er demonstriert, dass das Prinzip von Bestrafung und Belohnung exakt der falsche Weg ist, um Menschen für die Herausforderungen von Heute zu motivieren, egal ob in Beruf oder Privatleben. In "Drive" untersucht er die drei Elemente der wirklichen Motivation – Selbstbestimmung, Perfektionierung und Sinnerfüllung – und bietet kluge sowie überraschende Techniken an, um diese in die Tat umzusetzen. Daniel H. Pink stellt uns Menschen vor, die diese neuen Ansätze zur Motivation bereits erfolgreich in ihr Leben integriert haben und uns damit entschlossen einen außergewöhnlichen Weg in die Zukunft zeigen.
