What is a Maintenance Programs Specialist?

#1 Post by PlumbBob » Sun Feb 21, 2016 11:15 am

I see that Jazz currently has a posting, looking for a Maintenance Program Specialist. I have never heard of this job before. Is it the same thing as a Maintenance Planner? It does require the applicant to be licensed. Does anyone have any insight on this position?

A maintenance program specialist is someone who processes and inputs data to a maintenance program. When you add "specialist" to titles, it's a politically correct way of saying secretary or assistant.

Hmmm...doesn't look like a secretary or assistant to me.

Looks like a JAZZ specific title.

Basically, it's a PRM job, just at a big company. Without the requirement to initiate and manage work orders.
