To ensure companies realize optimum maintenance they need to adopt strategies that maximize availability and safety and minimize operating cost. Assets care or maintenance, when carried out effectively, is a high leverage tool for enabling organizational competitiveness for the achievement of business objectives.
In the face of relentless competitive pressures, companies are compelled to adopt and deploy the most productive approaches in conducting all their activities, including maintenance.
The alternative is, in some cases, business failure, or at best sub-optimal performance. Reliability centered maintenance is a rigorous, systematic process used to identify effective and economical maintenance tasks that when implemented, mitigates, minimizes or eliminates the consequences of machine failures, thereby maximizing safety, environmental integrity as well as cost effectiveness.
At the end of this training program, participants will be able to;
- Develop a scheduled maintenance plan
- Evaluate whether preventive maintenance is appropriate and determine optimum maintenance intervals
- Analyze processes that are more efficient and more effective, utilizing lessons learned from past analyses when applicable.
