A SCHEDULING AND PERFORMANCE EVALUATION SYSTEM FOR UTAH'S BASIC MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT UNITS

A COMPUTERIZED MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IS BEING DEVELOPED FOR UTAH'S STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT. COMPONENTS OF THIS SYSTEM INCLUDE PERFORMANCE STANDARDS, A MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT REPORTING SYSTEM, PLANNING PROCESSES AND PERFORMANCE EVALUATION TECHNIQUES. THE TECHNIQUE ALLOWS MAINTENANCE FIELD ORGANIZATIONS TO FORMALIZE SCHEDULING PROCESSES AND CONDUCT MORE TIMELY PERFORMANCE EVALUATIONS. A FLOW CHART OF THE FOLLOWING SCHEDULING PROCESSES IS PRESENTED: GENERAL SCHEDULING, SPECIFIC MAINTENANCE NEED IDENTIFICATION, AND RESOURCE SCHEDULING. THE GENERAL SCHEDULING PHASE INVOLVES THE ESTABLISHMENT OF GUIDELINES FOR SCHEDULING MAINTENANCE ACTIVITIES WHICH ARE BEST PERFORMED DURING SPECIFIC TIMES OF THE YEAR. THE SPECIFIC MAINTENANCE NEED IDENTIFICATION PHASE CONSISTS OF THE PROCESS DURING WHICH SPECIFIC MAINTENANCE ACTIVITIES, PROGRAMS OR PROJECTS ARE IDENTIFIED AND DETAILED FOR FUTURE ACCOMPLISHMENT. THE RESOURCE SCHEDULING PHASE INVOLVES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A WEEKLY SCHEDULE BY THE FIRST- LINE SUPERVISOR. THE PERFORMANCE EVALUATION PROCEDURE INVOLVES A COMPARISON OF ACTUAL PERFORMANCE WITH THE PERFORMANCE GUIDELINES PROVIDED. PRODUCTIVITY RATES ARE MANUALLY CALCULATED FOR EACH PERTIENT ACTIVITY BY UTILIZATION OF THE MAN HOUR AND THE ACCOMPLISHMENT DATA ON THE PERIOD ACTIVITY RECORD. SUBSTANTIAL DEVIATIONS FROM THE PERFORMANCE STANDARDS AND ANNUAL SCHEDULE OR LACK OF EXPECTED PROGRESS ON THE ITEMIZED ACTIVITIES WITHOUT APPARENT CAUSE ARE CALLED TO THE ATTENTION OF THE DISTRICT MAINTENANCE ENGINEER OR DISTRICT MAINTENANCE SUPERVISOR BY THE DISTRICT MAINTENANCE ANALYST.
