Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook (McGraw-Hill Handbooks)
The aim of an effective Maintenance System is to maximize production equipment effectiveness in terms of economic efficiency and profitability. The maintenance system is effective if every effort is applied to eliminate in every case the cause of lost production due to equipment failure or to maximize equipment effectiveness. The most efficient way of achieving this goal is through proper maintenance scheduling and planning. Hand-on experience is crucial for performing successful maintenance. Yet, many new engineers lack the experience to successfully manage a program. This is why so many readers regard the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook as the chief authority for establishing effective maintenance planning and scheduling in the real world.The second edition will add new sections and further develops many existing discussions to make the handbook more comprehensive and helpful. These new sections are:•New chapter (or section) on the "people side" of maintenance planning and work execution. Considerations include treating technicians as adults giving them as much information as possible and why.•New discussion of why effective maintenance needs scheduling in terms of using a standard for control. •New discussion of protecting the schedule against false emergencies.•New detailed aids and barriers analysis that improves the appendix on setting up a planning group.•New "cause maps" illustrating problems with a priority systems and schedule compliance
Bound to be a Classic for Maintenance Excellence!!!
By Dale R. Ekmark, Chief Maintenance Engineer, C... - October 22, 1999
Doc Palmer is the first author to really write a handbook for the people responsible for making Maintenance Excellence a reality. It is a must for every planner, scheduler and maintenance manager. We are using this book as a textbook for our Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Seminars at all of our North American Iron Ore Mining and Processing Facilities.I highly recommend it to anyone responsible for managing and improving maintenance effectiveness.
A must read for anyone responsible for maintenance

Excellent book for anyone considering the implementation of a computerized maintenance system. Not only stresses the need for a sound planning and scheduling process but actually provides the nuts and bolts of how to do it. Its obvious the author, Doc Palmer has a handle of whats needed to be successful as the manager of large maintenance force. I would really recommend this book to anyone involved in the maintenance of a power station.
The best book in the subject.
