This highly participative programme introduces candidates to the auditor’s role, how to prepare, undertake and report an audit as well as some of the one to one interview skills necessary to the role. The programme includes guidance on identifying Best Practice and gaps against current practice (using benchmarking as appropriate) and through example and exercises how an audit report might highlight and recommend Performance Improvement. General Performance Improvement drivers, tools and techniques, in line with Lean Six Sigma practices are discussed and demonstrated, including specific maintenance performance measures, key performance indicators and objective setting.
This programme covers all the essential skills necessary to understand how an effective and efficient maintenance function is implemented, supported and improved. This includes the use and application of a model maintenance management audit methodology consistent with the recognised maintenance excellence framework to assess the current state of maintenance and identify opportunities for improvement. Similarly, participants will learn how benchmarking and a range of Lean 6S tools can be adapted to the needs of maintenance
