About the course


Organizations that manage the condition and optimise the performance of equipment in the area of Maintenance are consistently able to better compete on the global stage. The participants and their teams are better positioned to positively influence the organization with innovative ideas and techniques that in turn produce a higher performing organization.


Individuals exposed to this training will develop expertise in the area of developing a Predictive Maintenance strategy through a project-based implementation and maintaining that strategy through good management techniques. They will learn why the best companies in the world see Predictive Maintenance as the key to delivering optimal production functionality by securing a thorough knowledge of equipment condition.


Predictive Maintenance is one of several techniques which are critical for a successful company and an integral part of maintenance management strategies such as RCM, RBM TPM, and even 6-Sigma. This comprehensive 5-day programme has been designed to benefit both qualified new professionals as well as experienced professionals who may be involved in the rollout of a new Predictive Maintenance system or auditing an existing system. It covers all the steps required in developing a successful Predictive Maintenance programme from initial recognition of a problem, through management approval and system development until a well-managed Predictive Maintenance system is in place and operational.

Course Objectives

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

  • Provide a step-by-step guide to developing a predictive maintenance system starting with foundations and building up to best practice that will deliver maximum business benefits
  • Provide opportunities to discuss the implementation and integration within the production environment
  • Provide an opportunity to learn these concepts through practical exercises
