Lower revenues due to lower commodity prices have placed equipment life-cycle costs under the management spotlight like never before. Maintainers are faced with the challenge to deliver the same levels of equipment safety, reliability and availability with smaller budgets. This Maintenance Engineering training seminar on Maintenance & Reliability Best Practices introduces the practical tools and practices that organizations need to adopt to drive down their equipment life-cycle costs in practical ways.

This Maintenance Engineering training seminar emphasizes the most effective strategies, policies, tactics and practices that are needed to ensure the reliability, integrity and durability of the physical assets through their life-cycle.

At the end of this training seminar, you will learn to:

  • Understand the concepts of costs, capital, profit and ROI
  • Understand the cost impact of unanticipated failure
  • Apply proactive policies to reduce future maintenance costs
  • Structure and analyse failure data to reduce repetitive failures
  • Identify root causes of unanticipated failure costs
  • Reduce resource costs through efficient work management practices

It is highly recommended that maintenance, reliability, engineering and technical support staff including leadership and management to attend this Maintenance Engineering training seminar. Also, including:

  • Planners
  • Supervisors
  • Engineers
  • Reliability Engineers
  • Maintenance Team Leaders and Managers
  • Operations Team Leaders and Managers
