Advanced Maintenance Optimization and Reliability Strategies



This training program is designed to provide participants with the required level of technical knowledge and skill to achieve personal satisfaction. Through it, participants will be able to critically analyze the methodologies employed within the organization and instigate improvements where required.

Program Objectives:

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the Maintenance optimization best practice techniques.

  • Understand a range of equipment failures and their implications to the operational organization.

  • Design a maintenance plan for the upkeep and maintenance inspections of static and rotating plant.

  • Learn a practical approach to developing an action plan to utilize these technologies in their areas of responsibility, fitting them into the overall maintenance strategy, and measuring benefits.

  • Integrate the Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM), Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), and Condition Based Maintenance (CBM).
