Maintenance Planning

 

Effective maintenance planning and work order scheduling ensure a safer and more cost-efficient work environment for asset-intensive businesses.

The Planning board is used for planning unscheduled work order lines on individual workers. Planners, supervisors, and managers can schedule and reschedule work order lines on the Mobile Client. Scheduling is updated in real time.

You drag a work order line from the unscheduled area to the calendar area to schedule it. Scheduling starts according to the calendar set up for the worker. Scheduling more work order lines on the same day to the same worker will automatically schedule one after the other, in sequential order.

 

Plan work orders on exact time

When you schedule jobs / work order lines, the jobs are added to a worker's work day in the sequence they are added. The first job begins when the worker starts the work day, according to his/her work calendar. Subsequent jobs are added sequentially to the work day. This means that the start time of a job is the next available time. A red line is shown under the worker's name if the worker is over- allocated, compared to the work calendar.

It is possible to schedule work order lines in more detail on the Planning board, meaning you can change duration and scheduled start time on a work order line. This detailed planning can be done when you have first scheduled a work order line to a worker.

Schedule work orders


In Dynaway EAM, the words 'jobs', 'work order lines', and 'work order cards' are used interchangeably to describe jobs. A job or work order card may contain one or more work order lines. A planner can easily schedule and reschedule work order lines. Scheduled work order lines are shown in the Work module, on the Planned work screen, for the worker allocated to the job.
