Course Description

Implementing an effective maintenance strategy is an integral component of any successful industrial endeavor.  The plethora of equipment and failure-prone components in today’s industrial plants make it imperative to develop a suitable maintenance plan that would prolong equipment life and improve its reliability at the lowest cost burden. However, such necessitates a fundamental understanding of the nature of failure and its manifestations in modern equipment.  Statistical analysis of past failures, and a prognostic tool such as FMEA, are immensely helpful in mapping out failure patterns and future scenarios and consequently, how to deal with them.  Along with the continuous advances in the field of maintenance, reactive maintenance methods are gradually being supplanted by proactive methods, including preventive (PM) and predictive maintenance (PdM), which if applied prudently can substantially enhance the maintenance system.

Course Objectives

  • Gaining a better understanding of equipment failure and the most common patterns 
  • Practicing developing FMEAs for relevant equipment and/or processes
  • Providing insight into the process of transitioning from reactive to proactive maintenance
  • Learning about the various predictive maintenance technologies and the respective equipment 
  • Elaborating upon the significance of the P-F interval, its relation to certain PdM methods
  • Exploring the benefits and capabilities of CMMS
  • Developing participants’ appreciation of RCM, its potential for improving overall reliability

Who Should Attend?

  • Maintenance managers and supervisors
  • Operations managers and supervisors
  • ME & I maintenance personnel
  • Maintenance planners
  • CMMS administrators
