The work week management process consists of a rolling multi-week schedule to ensure that the highest routine maintenance work priorities are being completed on-time on a weekly basis.

It provides supervisors with clear direction for integrating emergency work and overcoming the multitude of day-to-day challenges that can occur, in order to closely adhere to the approved weekly schedule.

It promotes teamwork between maintenance and operations so they can work together to maximize equipment uptime and production output.


Visual Planner is designed from the ground up to support the multi-week scheduling process.

It provides controls on multi-week schedules that neither project scheduling software, nor scheduling spreadsheets can achieve, since they have never been designed to manage the multi-week scheduling process.

Visual Planner consists of four applications that offer a unique graphical calendar approach, specifically designed to support the multi-week scheduling process from long term capacity planning to short term scheduling and work execution.

Visual PM, Visual Scheduler and Visual Roster allow schedulers to perform long term planning, as well as visualize and select the work required to be completed each week to prevent equipment failures, and accurately set the resources required and available to execute the work.

State-of-the-art technical architecture

Visual Planner has been embedded in SAP and IBM Maximo using the latest technical architecture. This approach allows Visual Planner to have the same look and feel as the host software, which leads to seamless and enthusiastic adoption by the users.

Visual Planner’s architecture provides a single point of truth by ensuring that the host system’s data is accessed and updated directly and instantly using the host’s standard architecture. It ensures the utmost data security, in contrast with interfaced systems, which often have latency and data integrity issues.
