Course Description

Maintenance & reliability best practices are critical for every successful individual and company. This course delivers more practical and new maintenance and reliability best practices concepts and tools. You will discuss these concepts and how using practical tools in case studies and discussion groups.

Participants will also be provided with knowledge and experience of modelling the failure time of a machine statistically to regularly plan maintenance actions, model application and maintenance optimisation for cost-effective replacement decisions and losses due to applying this technique.

Course Objectives

  • Understanding the Evaluate and justify your maintenance programs using value = benefit - cost
  • Understanding the Apply life cycle cost and risk planning to your facility assets
  • Targeting maintainability and/or reliability in the development of your facility maintenance plans
  • Learning the PLAN, DO, REVIEW cycle of continuous improvement
  • Learning the  Theories, methods and tools for better Understanding of reliability and dependability
  • Understanding Maintenance modelling and optimisation
  • Understanding the Maintenance management and reliability
