Planning & Scheduling

Our Maintenance Planners are responsible for the work management, planning and scheduling for maintenance services and provides a steady, structured and balanced flow of work that allows for identification of backlogs and effective management resources. Maintenance planning involves addressing any specific needs, potential problems, or routine tasks necessary for a department to operate. Planning addresses the questions of What, Why and How. Maintenance scheduling involves taking the work order and putting it into a timeframe.  Planners are responsible for creating the schedule and ensuring it gets done on schedule. Scheduling addresses the When and Who of maintenance.
