Online / Training


In an ever-increasing competitive industry like Manufacturing, Mining, Power and Utilities, and Oil & Gas, the maintenance division is typically required by management to increase asset and equipment uptime with minor breakdowns and lower cost. In this type of situation, the maintenance departments feel the lack of resources. Work orders keeps coming in, but not many get done.

Without proper planning and scheduling, maintenance is uncoordinated, costly, and ineffective, leaving the team to fail in meeting deadlines. These failures will cause constant problems for the Operations department, which will become increasingly reluctant to release equipment in the future. This can directly contribute to higher maintenance costs, inadequate maintenance execution, and rapidly deteriorating plant integrity.

Salvo Global’s 3-day course is designed to build advanced competency in maintenance planning and scheduling. The techniques that participants will learn in this course will allow for effective planning and scheduling of maintenance resources. The course covers all the fundamentals and advanced methods and applications that a suitably qualified professional would use in carrying out fully functional plant maintenance. In summary, the course provides a step-by-step practical guide to best practices of maintenance planning and scheduling that will essentially reduce maintenance costs and deliver maximum business benefits.

This training course is based on 35 years of real-life industrial experience of the trainer in maintenance planning and scheduling.
