About the course

Modern process and manufacturing industries are complex and capital intensive. Today’s competitive global marketplace requires them to be maintained so as to maximize uptime and minimizing operational costs. This course is designed to provide pertinent information and practical insight with Best Practices concepts about Maintenance & Reliability management to improve the performance of machines and enhance their reliability.

How to minimize the costs associated with equipment downtime and loss of production by implementing these practices.

Life-cycle costs include cradle to grave costs converted economic models. For most of plant and equipment’s the initial purchase price of the equipment is a small percentage of the total costs associated with maintenance costs, failure costs and downtime costs.

This course covers how to reduce failure of equipment and increase the reliability and the wellness of the plant overall. The course discusses the idea of using maintenance methods to minimize the Life Cycle Cost and how to develop a strategic reliability plan. The course will be interactive covering extensive case studies and real-life situations.
