Why Choose this Training Course?
This AZTech training course examines advanced analytical techniques for risk, reliability and safety management. In doing so, we incorporate operational research methods and multiple criteria decision making and demonstrate their practical application to cases of major failures and disasters. The idea of the training course is to look at Learning from Failures. With the rapid acceleration of product technology, reliability engineering is an urgent technical and business issue that requires the expertise of well-educated, trained engineers and technology leaders.
In this multidisciplinary training course, you’ll learn to identify, manage, and eliminate product and system failures using advanced risk and reliability practices and data analysis techniques. This AZTech training course will cover state-of-the-art research in risk assessment and management, reliability engineering, decision analysis and safety management.
This training course will feature:
- How do we learn from failures?
- An interdisciplinary approach, combining risk analysis, reliability engineering, decision analysis and management science
- Feedback from the users (maintenance) to design
- Application of advanced tools for safety and integrity
What are the Goals?
By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:
- Explain the benefits of acquiring best practices from High Reliability Organizations (HROs)
- Show how activities play a part in helping their organization perform at a higher level
- Determine methods for generating and implementing effective performance metrics
- Analyze critically the methodologies employed in the organization & implement improvements
- Link theory with practice and exposes the delegates to the evolutionary trends in risk, safety and reliability analyses
- Learn how to serve on an investigation team of a disaster
Who is this Training Course for?
This training course is highly recommended for all Operations, Maintenance, Reliability, Engineering and Technical Support staff.
