Develop the ‘right’ plans for each asset
Managing Plant Reliability trains delegates to understand that maintaining assets is all about managing the risk of equipment failure and how this will impact business performance. They learn to develop risk-based plans that potentially reduce overall workload by up to 30%.
A structured risk-based approach
Having a structured risk-based approach is the key to best practice asset management. Reliability is imperative for companies to deliver optimum levels of customer service.
