Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Keynote Speaker

The Mapcon Users Group Conference starts the week of September 24th this year, and we are pleased to announce our keynote speaker is none other than Doc Palmer, a specialist in maintenance planning and scheduling. Doc has written an excellent handbook on maintenance scheduling, and at MUG he will be presenting "Planning and Scheduling: Increase Your Workforce without Hiring".

Doc Palmer is a registered professional engineer with a master's degree in business administration. He is also a CMRP, Certified Maintenance and Reliability Professional.

Doc Palmer has over three decades of industrial experience as a practitioner primarily within the maintenance department of the Jacksonville Electric Authority, a major United States electric utility. From 1990 through 1994, Palmer was responsible for overhauling the existing maintenance planning organization. The resulting success played a role in expanding planning to all crafts and stations owned and operated by the utility. Publisher McGraw-Hill subsequently sought out Palmer to author the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook published in 1999 and now in its second edition (2005). Palmer also directed the purchase and implementation of a CMMS and administered the maintenance program. Additionally, he has delivered numerous well-received maintenance articles and presentations for industry.

Please join us this year for a most enlightening experience and learning how to Simplify Success with Cutting Edge Technology at MUG!
