Part M Maintenance Planning Essentials

Part M Maintenance Planning Essentials PicEffective Maintenance Planning can contribute significantly to achieving real cost savings within the organization.

This course considers best practice processes for accomplishing the various tasks which together make up the challenging role of Maintenance Planning. It is specifically designed to provide an essential knowledge of the people with a direct involvement in Part M Subpart C Planning functions whether in a Management Supervisory or Administrative role.

The role of the Maintenance Planning function is many and varied and can contribute to significant savings within the “Operation Process” if accomplished effectively.

Whilst the Maintenance Planning function “belongs” to the operator, almost the entire process may in fact be out sourced as a sub contracted activity with the ultimate responsibility for effective delivery remaining with the Operator.
