Planners cannot help. Nor does it make sense to send a multitude of small jobs to a planner when, clearly, no planning is necessary. Organizations that funnel all work through planners simply convert the planner to a clerk status and lose planning help in the pre-organization of major jobs and the obvious benefits. There should be practical criteria for determining which work requires planning. Criteria should be developed jointly by planners and field personnel to ensure fewer disagreements.

In addition, if a self-directed team is planned for the future, he may not have a job nor will any of his supervisors. He must ensure that the hourly work force is up to the task. He must start their education and explore new roles for himself as well as his ex-supervisors. Planners in a team environment can’t be clerks anymore. They must plan for new craftsmen clients. ” Then he must take steps to prepare those who will help him: craftsmen, supervisors, planners, and so on. O p e r a t i o n s M a n age r The most likely organizational trend of an operations organization in the future will be the formation of business units, in which operations is responsible for both operations and maintenance.

In equipment management, procedures like this must be documented in the maintenance program and every person involved in each step made fully conversant with not only his or her role but everyone else’s as well. Therefore, as maintenance personnel remove a damaged component, they must tag it with specified data and remove it to a pickup area. In turn, the warehouse would classify the component and determine the cause of failure. From that point, local shops or designated vendors would accomplish the rebuild guided by quality standards established and verified by purchasing.
