Process Improvements for Scheduling of Work in Maintenance & Construction

The Tauber team began with an assessment of the current PG&E maintenance scheduling process through a study of practices across 6 different divisions.

The team developed recommendations for the areas of crew capacity, emergency allocation, work coordination, and crew awareness. Following a successful pilot, the team developed a comprehensive implementation plan.

System-wide implementation of the recommendations is projected to save PG&E $400K-$600K annually. In addition, future recommendations to address other process issues that were identified can potentially save the company $1.6M per year.
