The advantages of work planning and control

Work Planning and Control Rules for Ranking

With WPC in place, unpleasant surprises are eliminated and the scene is set for a stable and predictable environment that works according to predefined rules.

Basic WPC in place gives you:

  • Peace of mind that preventive and statutory tasks are being done.
  • Accurate maintenance costing, including labour, contractors and spare parts.
  • A realistic account of backlog and an effective system to reduce the initial backlog, moving from reactive maintenance to proactive maintenance.
  • Easy identification and safe removal of duplicate tasks and work orders.
  • A simplified and semi-automated planning and scheduling cycle.

Advanced WPC in place gives you:

  • Better utilisation of the maintenance staff’s time.
  • Improved coordination between Operations, Maintenance and stores.
  • Accurate budgeting based on forecasted tactical maintenance, labour and spare parts.
  • Availability of spare parts and other resources when needed.
  • Optimal utilisation of equipment stoppages for opportunistic maintenance.
  • Elimination of wasteful waiting time.
  • Proper prioritisation of maintenance work according to predefined rules.
