Project Management for Facilities Management

Training Led by:  Total Resource Management – 3 hour training

Trainer:  John Reeve

Presentation Abstract:  Every facility and institution has a need for project tracking. All project managers should have the capability to easily manage scope, status schedule and track cost. This is especially important when the stakeholders want to know why a project slipped and/or costs overran. Project management typically involves a work breakdown schedule, deliverables, cost accounts for storing budgets/actuals, and a project schedule. This seminar will discuss the ideal model for project management so that you can maximize the software you have and make more informed decisions.

Work Bundling for Facilities Management

Training Led by:  Total Resource Management – 3 hour training

Trainer:  John Reeve

Presentation Abstract:  Some organizations have a large number of buildings to manage. It’s possible to have a large maintenance backlog which includes routine work, defect tracking and deferred maintenance. The task of managing all of this can be challenging. How do you come up with a fair prioritization scheme? Do we have all the data we need for reporting in one system; is that feasible? Is it the right data? Are we able to identify the worst building or even the worst asset? What would be the ideal method for capturing failure data? Should some buildings have annual maintenance periods where work can be bundled together to maximize resources and minimize customer impact?

Presenter Bio/Summary:  John Reeve was the 2nd consultant hired by the company that invented Maximo. He spent the first 10 years as an international consultant in project management involving scheduling systems and cost management. The following 20 years focused on Maximo software and asset management system design. As a certified reliability leader, he is a frequently sought after speaker. His credentials include 12,000 LinkedIn followers, 100 postings on industry best practices, numerous trade magazine articles, and, a soon to be released book, Failure Modes to Failure Codes. He also has a U.S Patent in maintenance scheduling for an “order of fire” design. He can comfortably discuss all types of schedules and cost tracking design for any industry. His combined knowledge in both project management and asset management make him unique in the consulting field.
