This practical guide, co-authored by LCE’s planning and scheduling expert Tim Kister, is a hands-on reference tool for maintenance, reliability engineering, and plant professionals alike. The third volume in the Life Cycle Engineering series, this book takes the guiding principles of Lean Manufacturing and Lean Maintenance and demonstrates how to apply these concepts to the everyday planning and scheduling tasks required to keep equipment running smoothly, yielding reduced downtime and greater capacity.

Taking the guiding principles of Lean Manufacturing and Lean Maintenance, this unique handbook goes beyond the theory of planning and scheduling to clearly illustrate sustainable techniques to improve performance, reduce costs, and extend the life of plant machinery.  Invaluable examples and templates that plant professionals can copy and use in their day-to-day activities, are also included.
