Introduction

  • Is your equipment (fixed or mobile) failing before planned replacement?
  • Are you unable to execute maintenance tasks because spare parts are not available?
  • Have you made significant investment in CBM methods and tools but struggle to realize the benefit?
  • Do you have lots of data from oil analyses but still struggling to accurately predict your equipment breakdowns?
  • Do you know how to determine optimum asset life?
  • Are you struggling to justify the economics of asset replacement?
  • Are you having difficulties in deciding whether to rebuild or replace your equipment to minimize the life cycle costs?
  • Do you need to optimize your emergency spare requirements?

If you answer YES to any of the above questions, this course is for you.

Objectives                                          

The objectives of the program can be summarized as follows:

  • To focus on the techniques of optimization – the single most important thrust of this learning program. Whether the decision is about work-crew sizes, or the replacement of component-parts or entire equipment units, the concept of making the very best, most optimal, decision will be the principal concern of the training program.
  • The concept of making the very best, most optimal, decision will be the principal concern of the training program.
  • To equip the participating maintenance managers, planners and schedulers and engineers with the know-how to select the most appropriate analytical tools for their maintenance decision-making.
  • Reflecting the growing focus of industrial safety and the profusion of safety-related litigation – think of transportation accidents, chemical spills, and mining disasters – the program will show how safety objectives relate to the optimization models, and will underline the advantages of having a well-documented and rigorously-executed program of maintenance and replacement.
  • To introduce the critical decision-making topics that can make a significant difference to the in-service time of equipment, to the costs related to doing maintenance too often or too seldom, and the optimization of asset utilization.
  • To not only cover the classic need-to-know material in the area, but to acquaint the participants with leading-edge and on-the-horizon approaches that they will encounter in the near future.
