Achieving excellence in maintenance and reliability is the aim of every organization that depends on its physical assets to achieve business objectives. Lower profit margins have made reducing maintenance costs imperative to the survival of many organizations. The overall cost of asset ownership is closely tied to the outcomes of reliability, durability and longevity of physical assets. This training course is about developing and implementing the strategy and tactics that deliver the outcomes we need. 

This Excellence in Maintenance and Reliability Management training course starts with the key aspects that lay the foundations and cornerstones of an effective maintenance function. It introduces reliability strategies such as FMECA, TPM, RCM and RCFA to highlight their costs and benefits. The Excellence in Maintenance and Reliability Management training course will then demonstrate how these strategies are used to derive the different maintenance tactics of predictive, preventive, detective and repair-after-failure maintenance tactics. 



Course Objectives: 

  • Compare their current maintenance strategies to industry best practice 
  • Understand the benefits and costs of alternative maintenance strategies 

  • Define maintenance strategies for a specific system using a decision support process and tools 

  • Analyze failures and determine the root causes using the tools and templates provided 

  • Implement reliability improvement methodologies correctly 

  • Prepare maintenance schedules and procedures for implementation
