Who should attend

This course is intended for general managers who have oversight responsibility for maintenance and maintenance planning organizational units, operations and maintenance managers with direct line responsibility as well as staff support responsibility for maintenance management, maintenance supervisors, maintenance engineers and maintenance planners.

About the course

With ever increasing demands from top management to do more work and decrease costs, investing in predictive maintenance and condition monitoring makes more sense today than ever. While many organizations still rely heavily on time based maintenance, it’s a proven fact that condition monitoring maintenance requires less personnel and saves money and downtime.

This course provides the fundamentals of PDM and condition monitoring applicable to plants, facilities and manufacturing lines. Predictive Maintenance & Condition Monitoring will provide students with a framework to make the right decisions on what equipment needs condition monitoring, what technologies to use to meet their needs and how to measure the effectiveness of their decisions. In addition to exposing participants to the principles and options for a program, they will learn about real world applications that have benefited other successful maintenance programs.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to go back to their facility and immediately apply what they learned to help make their maintenance process more efficient and less expensive.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Review the key elements of a best practice approach to maintenance management
  • Introduce a highly structured method for determining the optimum maintenance program
  • Explore the components those comprise an effective predictive and preventive maintenance
  • Present maintenance as various integrated business processes that supports the objectives of an organization in the context of total life cycle facility
  • Develop a maintenance strategy that integrates all components of maintenance
  • Understand current practices in maintenance management and the potential drivers for re-engineering maintenance, the planning & techniques to be applied
  • Describe the role of dependability and quality in maintenance
  • Explore the importance of managing risk, safety and the environment
  • Understand the role of condition monitoring and information systems in predictive and preventive maintenance
  • Identify and plan improvement opportunities using audit results
  • Carryout a high level benchmarking analysis
