Visual Planner's four applications provide a visual calendar designed to help you manage multi-week scheduling, from planning your long-term capacity to managing scheduling and execution in the short term.
The work order management process includes a multi-week rolling schedule, ensuring the highest routine maintenance work priorities are completed on time every week.
It gives supervisors guidance for integrating last-minute work orders with day-to-day challenges so your team can stick closely to the approved weekly schedule. It promotes collaboration between maintenance and operations, ensuring they're working together to maximize equipment uptime and production output.
Visual Planner fully supports EPRI Best Practice Guidelines for Maintenance Planning and Scheduling.
Visual PM gives schedulers an at-a-glance view of the preventive maintenance workload for a given crew by year, month and week. They can perform capacity planning by viewing total annual PM workload for the crew. It also displays the current workload hours per month and week.
Visual Roster empowers schedulers and supervisors to better manage their teams to meet needs. It shows what craft personnel is available and allows for borrowing team members from another crew to match work requirements.
The Visual Scheduler's Drag & Drop functionality enables schedulers to easily swap work in the unscheduled backlog with the scheduled work section. Work can be moved from one week to another easily because the tool displays multiple work weeks at the same time.
Visual Assignment empowers supervisors to maximize the time they're spending with their crew and cut back on the hours they have to be in front of the computer. This helps them stay complaint with the schedule while allowing them to overcome the challenges they face every day in completing jobs on time.
