So, your planner doesn’t plan? How to move away from unplanned maintenance
Wednesday, April 29, 2020

- Shon Isenhour, Founding partner, Eruditio
What do you mean your planner doesn’t plan? Let’s look at what a maintenance planner should do both for and with your organization. The planner role is one of the most important roles within your reliability program. However, in a recent SMRP Conference session, only 3% said their planners were truly planning work regularly. If that is representative of the norm, what does that mean for metrics like wrench time and uptime? In this webinar, we share job descriptions, statistics, and best practices while crafting a plan for how to correct this problem at your sites.
