Modern Maintenance Technologies: Challenging Traditional Approaches in Maintenance

Details :

Modern Maintenance Technologies provides great opportunities to optimize the performance of your systems and equipment to achieve maximum return on investment (ROI). By reducing costs and downtime, while achieving high levels of safety and quality you will be able to get the best out of your assets.

This training course introduces participants to the skills and knowledge areas of essential maintenance technologies and methodologies of today, associated with equipment, systems, people and management. It demonstrates both the background to each technology, and its practical application to achieve the best bottom-line results.

This training course will highlight:

  • Asset Management: a business-like approach of maintenance
  • International standards on Asset Management (PAS 55 & ISO 55000)
  • Cost/benefit thinking
  • Understanding risk and an introduction to a Risk Based Maintenance approach
  • Decision support tools to make maintenance more effective
  • Root Cause Analysis (RCA)
  • Understanding audits, maintenance assessments and bench marking as a means to improve your asset & maintenance management process
  • Apply modern maintenance technologies & methodologies in the appropriate way
  • Understand how each of these technologies contribute to maintenance efficiency
  • Explain how these technologies interact with and support each other
  • Achieve the best results in practicing these technologies
  • Develop an action plan to utilise these technologies in their own areas of responsibility, fitting them into the overall maintenance strategy and to measure the benefits
  • All professionals involved in Maintenance, Engineering and Production
  • Anyone who wishes to update themselves on Modern Maintenance Technologies, judge the suitability of these technologies for their needs, and learn how to implement them for the benefit of their organisations
