Fundamentals of Best Practices in Maintenance

Course Objectives:

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the asset (equipment) life cycle and the role of maintenance in extending asset life.
  • Understand different types of maintenance, such as preventive maintenance, predictive maintenance, reliability-centered maintenance (RCM), and root cause failure analysis (RCFA).
  • Explain how to select the most cost-effective maintenance strategy for each asset to reduce failures, risks, and costs.
  • Efficiently use Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) to implement a successful maintenance management program.
  • Apply key performance indicators (KPIs) for assets and maintenance and compare them with leading global benchmarks.

Target Audience:

This training course targets relatively new professionals in the field of maintenance management, including maintenance engineers, maintenance technicians, maintenance supervisors, maintenance managers, operators, operational supervisors, process engineers, and technicians.
