QDG - Team-based Maintenance Planning and Scheduling
Use the benefits of teamwork and team dynamics to achieve highly productive Operations and Maintenance activities. Despite the highest level of the industrial revolution and the technological cutting edge, the rate of failure due to human errors and human factors remains about 80% as per the data from the nuclear industry, and ASTM reports. People’s problems are therefore the deadliest threat to our machines. However, men are not like machines that can be fixed. In this regard, James P. Lewis in his book, team-based Project management, quoted Kathy Guisewhite who said, “Men don’t come with instruction manuals”. To address this problem and to improve human performance, Maintenance Planning and Scheduling (MPS) is one of the strategies used. It involves people at various levels of the organization, so it becomes important to look for ways to leverage on team dynamics in order to get the best contribution from everyone.
