Scheduling

Definition

The purpose of scheduling is to ensure that resources are available at a specific time when the equipment is available. Scheduling is a projection of what we anticipate to accomplish over the next time period. Success in the planning and scheduling of maintenance work requires a team working in unison – with everyone understanding their role.

In order to manage the backlog effectively, the scheduling team must be able to prioritize the work. A simple prioritization system includes a timeframe in which to complete the work with higher priority scheduled first and a description of what is at stake: safety, cost, throughput, environmental impact/compliance, and some indication of the likelihood of the consequence occurring.

How does iReliability™ enable this?

Work Execution

Assign, track, and view all of your activity information at a glance
The Work Execution feature in iReliability™ allows schedulers to create jobs, schedule jobs, and manage those jobs over time through the use of ‘job buckets’. For each job bucket, the scheduler must define what specific activities or work is to be completed; define which locations in the database the activities or work is to be completed against; schedule that job to be completed, either one time or on a recurring basis; and identify who is responsible for completing the job.
