5:35 PM Tactics for Improving Maintenance Operations

  • Using software to improve job logs
  • Addressing backlogs through prioritizing, scheduling and planning
  • Using condition monitoring to predict future needs

4:20 PM Working to Decrease Maintenance Backlog through a Mixed Mode of Delivery

Decreasing an outstanding maintenance backlog is a hard task when just looking in-house for a solution. From the opposing view, completely outsourcing all maintenance is a risky task and often leaves the organisation vulnerable to abuse. This is why a combination of in-house and outsourcing is the ideal method to combating the maintenance backlog.

This session will review:
  • Reducing the overall costs by identifying outsourcing partners
  • Ensuring the high level of maintenance performance standard is sustained
  • Identifying which maintenance jobs should be conducted in-house
  • Using this mixed mode to target backlog liabilities and reduced risk
