Work management is the process of initiating, planning, scheduling, undertaking maintenance and work feedback, as well as performing reliability analysis and continual improvement of your physical assets.
The purpose of work management is to establish a process and requirements for a systemic approach that will ensure all work is completed in a timely manner, appropriate to its priority and in keeping with budget and resources constraints. The work management processes are aligned with your information systems and can be updated at any future date as systems are modified or changed out.
Establishing a standardised approach to work management has been proven in the past to provide significant efficiency gains as well as improved asset reliability. A systemic approach to work management allows people to do the right work at the right time in the most efficient way that provides the most value for your organisation.
The work that is being done is systematically prioritised and aligned with your business drivers to meet your performance requirements.
The cycle of reactive maintenance is transitioned out of through proper planning, scheduling and achievement of maintenance schedules, including your preventive maintenance regime which in turn increases plant reliability, reduces unplanned downtime and gets you out of your reactive maintenance cycle.
You transition your work management maturity into a continual improvement organisation that is delivering effective maintenance at the lowest possible cost. You are performing reliability engineering, delivering reliable assets and driving out waste by understanding and effectively managing equipment performance.
