Maintenance Planning And Scheduling For Utilities: The Impact Of Optimization
Most organizations understand the importance of maintaining compliance with their customers, and thus recognize the value of an effective maintenance program. A strong program combines both maintenance planning and scheduling to help a company ensure equipment is in proper working order, anticipate breakdowns, and maintain reliability in customer relations.
So why do so many businesses still struggle to get it right? Efficient scheduling processes and tools are at the heart of any reliable maintenance program, but organizations across every industry have been slow to adopt the right systems. In fact, in the manufacturing industry alone, 47% of companies and teams still use in-house spreadsheets for their maintenance schedules. These outdated scheduling technologies and processes ultimately result in an inadequate maintenance program; one that leads to wasted time and resources, equipment failure, and strained client relationships.
On the other hand, powerful tools that can handle complex scheduling requirements give organizations a leg up against their competition. They help companies optimize their business operations for better resource utilization, improved employee and customer satisfaction, and higher-quality maintenance work.
