Course TypeMaintenance & Asset Management
QualificationCity and Guilds Accredited Certificate
Maintaining assets is all about managing the risk of equipment failure and its resulting impact on business performance. Developing risk-based plans has the potential to reduce overall workload by up to 30%. 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.
On successful completion of the Managing Plant Reliability workshop delegates will understand:
- How to develop the ‘right’ plans for each asset. This focuses on the most critical items, initially, then putting in place a regime for all maintainable items
The value of reliability and the tools needed to define the ‘right’ level and ‘right’ application of the different maintenance approaches
Is it right for me?
The Managing Plant Reliability workshop is designed for delegates who have responsibility for taking care of assets and managing plant equipment. This includes engineering managers, operations/production managers, operations and engineering team leaders, technicians and reliability engineers.
What will I learn?
The Managing Plant Reliability workshop will focus on:
- Asset identification
- Plant criticality assessment
- The nature of failure
- Key techniques for selecting the ‘right’ approaches to be included in an annual maintenance plan, e.g. Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM), Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA)
- Overhaul management
- Impact of Life Cycle Costing (LCC)
- Root Cause Analysis (RCA)
What are the benefits?
Too often the air conditioning unit in the janitor’s toilet gets the same level of maintenance as a critical plant. Participating in the Managing Plant Reliability workshop will impart a good understanding of criticality so that valuable maintenance resource can be focussed in the right areas. Following this workshop, delegates will be able to lead activities that improve equipment reliability in a structured manner.
Having reliable equipment leads to lowest operating costs and the ability to deliver quality products on time.
