Workflow and Controls
An important part of maintenance is a structured control program. This program provides a means to provide instructions for the maintenance technician through work orders. Work order results are recorded to provide a history of performance both of the technician and of the equipment. Performance of maintenance is scheduled for equipment access, cost control and to maximize equipment uptime. Planning the performance of jobs allows pre-staging of parts, tools and even pre-briefing of technicians on performance of work to increase efficiency. Tracking of performance through a series of key performance indicators will allow continuous improvement of the maintenance organization.
