Microsoft® Project for Maintenance

This is a hands-on seminar, designed specifically for maintenance. Project management software isn't just about Gantt charts and task lists anymore — learn to make the most of Microsoft® Project in all phases of maintenance activity. Applicable to a wide range of maintenance operations, from projects as large as multi-million dollar petrochemical turnarounds to those as small as a single-minute exchange of die, the benefits of a well-implemented Microsoft® Project program are broad and can significantly affect your bottom line.
