Learning Objectives

  • Taking a more detailed view and expanding on the key Reliability Methods, this course provides an alternative to the basic 1-day REL101 introduction course and instead provides a deep dive into all the main tools which the Reliability Engineer should be equipped with.
  • Covering 2-days of methodology learning with interactive exercises, this course provides a strong foundation of the essential reliability and maintainability concepts and principles.
  • Learn which key methods and tools to employ to achieve reliability improvement across the asset lifecycle.
  • Know what the objectives are of reliability management and how the reliability discipline interacts with the rest of the organization.

Key Learnings

  • This interactive, practical course addresses the integration of a range of reliability initiatives into an asset management strategy. You'll discover the tools necessary to develop, implement, and sustain best in class maintenance and reliability programs. You'll learn the foundational elements your organization needs in order to reduce reactive maintenance, downtime, and maintenance costs with proven reliability methods.

Why you should attend

  • Suffering high maintenance costs and unplanned downtime
  • Want immediate performance improvement and to reduce costs, but don’t know where to start
  • Experiencing recurring problems and/or lack of confidence in current solutions
  • Continually under-performing due to current design not meeting business goals
  • Consistently exceeding your maintenance budget
  • Unsure of where your reliability program is currently at
  • You are new to reliability engineering
  • You are looking to get your team started and reliability programs ramped up
