Managing Reliability Improvement
A practical course addressing the integration of a range of reliability initiatives into an asset management strategy. Covers RCM, Life Cycle Costing, Root Cause Analysis, Data Analysis and Plant Availability Simulation.
Reliability Engineers, Maintenance Analysts, Asset Managers, Design Engineers and Plant Performance Engineers.
