Course Overview

A course designed to give you everything you need to develop Reliability Strategies and understand how they fit into the overall Asset Strategy Management (ASM) process. This content covers developing and reviewing reliability strategies from first principles, focused on the key elements required to support an effective ASM process.

ASM has the objective of ensuring reliability strategy decisions (what you choose to do) and reliability strategy content (how you choose to do it and why you chose to do it) is optimal and implemented on all assets all the time. To ensure that the optimal strategy, is on all assets, all the time, requires ongoing review and update of the performance of the asset and adjustment of the reliability strategy to meet changing performance needs or operational conditions. This course covers the foundations of ASM and the setting and reviewing of reliability strategies.
