Why Choose this Training Course?
Maintenance, Reliability and Asset Management Best Practices are critical for every successful individual and company. It is the job of the maintenance professional to optimise the maintenance effort using a structured and systematic approach. This AZTech training course covers all the fundamentals of Maintenance, Reliability and Asset Management that a suitably qualified professional would be expected to carry out during his duty starting with the first steps and building up in a stair case fashion to a fully functional maintenance organisation.
Individuals exposed to this training will develop new insights into international best practices. They will learn why the best companies in the world see Maintenance management as the key to delivering the right quality product at the lowest costs. Technical knowledge is key to effective control and peer respect within any maintenance organisation; when this is achieved personal satisfaction follows. This seminar will give the delegate the required level of technical knowledge and skill to achieve that personal satisfaction.
On completion of this seminar the delegate will be able to critically analyse the methodologies employed within the organisation and instigate improvements where required.
This training course will feature:
- Fundamentals of maintenance, reliability and asset management
- Reliability modelling and failure modes for rotating and stationery machinery
- Learning from major failures
- Condition based maintenance technologies
- Selection of appropriate maintenance strategies in asset management
What are the Goals?
To provide a step-by-step guide to maintenance, reliability and asset management best practice starting with foundations and building up to best practice that will deliver maximum business benefits. By virtue of dynamic participation in this seminar, it is to be expected that delegates will make a substantial, positive impact on the maintenance regime within their home organisation.
By the end of this training course, participants will be able to have:
- A solid understanding of Maintenance optimization best practice techniques
- An understanding of a range of equipment failures and their implications to the operational organisation
- The ability to design a maintenance plan for the upkeep and maintenance inspections of static and rotating plant
- A practical approach to developing an action plan to utilise these technologies in their own areas of responsibility, fitting them into the overall maintenance strategy, and measuring benefits
- Integration of Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM), Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) and Condition Based Maintenance (CBM)
Who is this Training Course for?
This comprehensive 5-day AZTech training course has been designed to benefit both qualified new professionals as well as experienced professionals who might need to refresh their skills. It is highly recommended that all Maintenance, Reliability, Engineering and technical support staff including leadership and management attend this workshop. If you and your company are interested in greatly increasing productivity, this will be a very valuable training course and will greatly benefit:
- Maintenance supervisors and superintendents
