Diagnostic of Machines and Root Cause Analysis of Failures
- Interactive training methods including questioning, group exercises, videos, case studies, and presentations on best practices and fundamentals of reliability improvement.
- Participants have opportunities to discuss their practical experiences, identify problems, and make improvements for immediate implementation in their organizations.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Understand machine functions and effectively identify the causes of failures.
- Conduct effective diagnostics of machine failures and determine their root causes.
- Apply effective controls to prevent recurring failures.
- Engage the organization in an effective diagnostic process for failures.
- Analyze critical equipment and machine systems to prevent future breakdowns.
This training course targets maintenance managers, operational managers, reliability specialists, maintenance engineers, experienced supervisors, and individuals responsible for planning and functional management of enterprise machinery and equipment.
- Purpose of failure diagnosis and prevention methods and monitoring.
- Understanding business needs.
- Impact of machine failures on profits and customer satisfaction levels.
- Risk assessment and prioritization.
