    Position - Reliability & Maintenance Systems Planner & Scheduler(s)


    Education & Experience - Ten (10) years of progressive growth & leadership capabilities and proven responsibilities in a manufacturing organization with knowledge of float plant equipment and equipment maintenance procedures and methods.   Combination of AA Degree and/or BSC in electrical, mechanical, business or industrial engineering may be considered in lieu of five (5) years of manufacturing and/or reliability-based systems experience


    The scope of this position is to know what must be done in maintenance planning and scheduling, and how well it must be done, for the maintenance business process to operate at a high level of performance, reliability and repeatability and translate this into results.


    Reliability & Maintenance Planner & Scheduler results are achieved by fully documented quality work processes and outcome-based systems with clearly established and well-defined performance targets, deadlines, outcomes, responsibilities and authorities that are identified for every stage of the maintenance process.


    The Maintenance Planners & Schedulers primary duties are to ensure ‘right-first-time’ job performance so that equipment reliability is maximized, while seeking maximum ‘tool or wrench time’ from maintenance technicians, SME’s, Engineers and/ or any resource pool.


    This is achieved by the Planner & Scheduler driving safety and removing uncertainty and risk when equipment technicians perform a wide range of (reactive and proactive) maintenance tasks.   These individuals ensure quality procedure and process content and establish job and work packages covering all equipment safety, reliability, parts condition and work quality proof-tests (so called ‘fix effectiveness’) such that the maintenance work performed delivers substantial equipment reliability and performance improvement and growth.


    This role requires technical skills such that the quality and quantity of parts are correctly identified, and pre-assembled (‘kitted’), such that inventory is ‘protected’ and checked for correctness (then delivered) to the technician. It is necessary to have accurate time and job costs for financial improvement (cost of ownership) so accurately scheduled and executed work minimizes adverse impact to operations.


    The Maintenance Planners & Schedulers develop cost and time estimates & document procedures for proactive and planned maintenance and pre-assemble and prepare necessary parts, equipment, services and work documentation to perform the maintenance work. They develop and write applicable maintenance procedures that promote precision maintenance, reduce waste, and increase maintenance efficiency and effectiveness, positions will be expected to work a standard dayshift schedule with 24/7 on call support as needed.


    Interested parties please contact human resources and provide a Basic resume (work history, knowledge, skills, and education) as part of the application process.
