BMC Training provides on 14 Nov 2021 Maintenance Strategy Development and Cost Effective Implementation course [Maintenance Engineering Training] in Singapore,Singapore


Maintenance & Reliability Best Practices are critical for every successful individual and company. The first module of this workshop delivers many practical and new Maintenance and Reliability Best Practices concepts and tools. You will discuss these concepts and practice using practical tools in case studies and discussion groups. The second module then helps you decide in a rational way which activities are best done with internal resources and which are best outsourced. Tools and techniques are introduced which will help you ensure that outsourcing contracts are comprehensive and avoid the common pitfalls.

The costs associated with equipment downtime and reduced production can be significant. Learning how to effectively manage all aspects of your industrial facility is a must – so is this ten – day course.

The focuses of this course are highlighted as follows:

  • Understanding Outsourcing methodologies
  • Contracting types, including Service Level Agreements
  • Risk Based Maintenance to ground maintenance contracts
  • Dashboards and real-time performance monitoring and Key Performance Indicators to monitor performance
  • Continuous improvement and performance management: how to evaluate the performance with all parties involved

The course is split into two modules:

MODULE I – Maintenance & Reliability Best Practices

MODULE II – Maintenance Contracting & Outsourcing

Each module is structured and can be taken as a stand-alone course; however, delegates will maximise their benefits by taking Module 1 and 2 back-to-back as a two-week course.


By the end of this course delegates will be able to:

  • Evaluate and justify your maintenance programs using Value = Benefit – Cost
  • Apply Life Cycle cost and risk planning to your facility assets
  • Target Maintainability and/or Reliability in the development of your facility maintenance plans
  • Learn the PLAN, DO, REVIEW cycle of continuous improvement
  • Understand how to decide rationally what maintenance activities to outsource and what is not
  • Learn the features, functions and benefits of lean maintenance contracts
  • Understand the different types of maintenance contracts (incl. Service Level Agreements) and when/how to apply them
  • Learn how to define service levels and monitor the contractor performance
  • Learn how to develop and negotiate a maintenance contract
  • Understand how to evaluate the delivered performance of all parties involved
  • Learn how to implement maintenance contract management
