About the course

Maintenance planning, management and work control is critical for every successful individual and company. This comprehensive 5-day course has been designed to benefit both qualified new professionals as well as experienced professionals who might need to refresh their skills. It covers all the fundamentals of maintenance that a suitably qualified professional would be expected to carry out during his duty starting with the first steps and building up in a stair case fashion to a fully functional maintenance organization. The course is intended to introduce participants to a deep and advanced knowledge of maintenance planning, scheduling and monitoring of maintenance program. A focuses are directed on basic concepts of maintenance management, establishing a preventive and predictive maintenance programs and maintenance planning and scheduling procedures and expert systems for troubleshooting. Computer applications on maintenance management, planning and scheduling will be addressed too. Emphasis on various aspects of analytical techniques which have proved valuable in maintenance planning, scheduling, critical path analysis, priority assessment, replacement decision, maintenance sequencing, queuing decision, task assignment & allocation, the managing maintenance spare parts and the application of CMMS.
