At what frequency do you calculate the schedule compliance metric? Is it weekly, daily, or hourly? Depending on who you ask, you might come up with a different answer. For me, it depends on several factors. The first one is the level of Maintenance organization reactivity. That is followed by how long the organization has been producing next week’s schedule. It might surprise you but a number of organizations still don’t produce a formal schedule for next week. Another factor is the partnership between Maintenance and Operations.
If you are like many Maintenance Planners that I have the opportunity to interface with, most aren't doing much using the job plan concept. The intent of the job plan is to better enable the craftspeople to execute their job with the materials, tools, and information in hand. Ideally, you really want a template to facilitate the development of these job plans. Recently, I did a webinar for Emaint which is a CMMS vendor on creating job plans. You can view it here. What should some of the headers be for a job plan template?
