Reliability Centered Maintenance Course


The objective of maintenance over the last twenty years has steadily shifted from a 'prevention' approach to 'risk' based approach. Maintenance strategies must evolve to support the technological requirements of modern equipment and the challenges of a competitive and legislated environment.  Packed with vital reliability insights and reliability improvement techniques, this 3-day training course in ‘Reliability Centered Maintenance and Risk Management’ is for people who want to lift the efficiency, productivity and output of their operating assets with successful reliability engineering methods. Applying RCM in accordance with SAE JA1011 is still the only credible method for developing failure management strategies and tactics

This course is the ideal introduction to the practical aspects of using reliability engineering concepts in the workplace. It takes the understanding and techniques of reliability engineering and teaches you how to apply them to get better production plant performance. You do not need to be a university trained engineer to attend. The course contents and depth of coverage is focused on using the fundamental reliability concepts and correct principles, along with applying the successful workplace practices of reliability engineering in your business.

The real focus of the course is on the useful techniques of reliability engineering used every day to improve operating and production performance through lower maintenance costs, less downtime, fewer equipment failures and higher production output.

Learn how to deliver equipment reliability improvement using every-day reliability engineering to enrich your operating and maintenance processes. The training provides you with valuable and insightful knowledge, along with practical case studies and hands-on data analysis activities you learn from. After a basic introduction to reliability engineering and equipment operational risk you see how reliability engineering is practically applied and used to achieve equipment reliability growth and optimise your maintenance management strategy.
