Maintenance planning and scheduling in line with production planning

In the interest of customer satisfaction: optimum availability and a perfect condition of the production facilities at all times

Due to the increasing complexity of plants (including their automation) and the introduction of process control systems, maintenance has often developed independently alongside production, causing conflicts from time to time. However, these are of no interest to the customer at all. The only thing that counts for him: on-time deliveries while maintaining the highest quality. The planning of maintenance activities should always be in line with advanced planning & scheduling (detailed production planning).
