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?
Here’s an outline that you may want to start with.
- Asset number
- Asset name
- Crafts required
- Estimated hours per craft
- Total job duration (to be able to tell our Operations partners how long we need the equipment)
- Safety considerations
- Tasks and sequence
- Materials and Parts (Stock or purchased)
- Consumables (i.e. shop towels, penetrating lubricant spray)
- Tools and equipment (i.e. 2” impact socket, grease gun, 40’ man-lift)
- Housekeeping and/ or disposal
- Revision history
