- Learn how to develop logical, justified maintenance strategies following the Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) approach.
- Leverage powerful reliability software to optimize your plans in a simulated environment leading to effective plan implementation. Analyse and utilize failure data to drive improvement.
- Deliver successful outcomes and meet business objectives through quantifying and calculating business benefits and risk reduction.
- Discover how to analyse failure data by going further than just MTBF; this course introduces the Weibull distribution and demonstrates using software how this methodology will drive superior maintenance results.
- Linking the Weibull distribution to the logical Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) approach, this class will provide a justified outcome to maintenance strategies that can be implemented through to preventative maintenance documentation.
- By utilizing software to logically follow the step-by-step pathway to optimized maintenance strategy development the course will drive excellent asset performance at low cost and risk.
Why you should attend:
- Currently following OEM recommendations, but would like to optimize
- High maintenance costs and unplanned downtime
- Want immediate performance improvement and to reduce costs, but don’t know where to start
- Continually under-performing due to current design not meeting business goals
- Consistently exceeding your maintenance budget
- Currently using too many generic or inconsistent strategies
- Want to learn the framework to move out of reactive state to a proactive state
- A need to optimize spares due to significant downtime, unnecessary spending but unsure how to plan
- Duration and Delivery
- 2-days face-to-face classroom, or
- 15-hours remote web conferencing, typically over 3 days
- Additional information
When this course is provided privately, it can be extended to include a third day focusing on further exercises to drive a greater understanding of applying an RCM approach using the dedicated software.
- Who should attend?
Reliability Engineers, Project Engineers, Maintenance Analysts, Maintenance Supervisors, Design Engineers, Plant Performance Engineers, RCM Team Members
