About this Training Course 

Whether you are maintaining an oil rig or processing plant, good quality maintenance is critical to delivering a safe reliable product to your customers. Whatever your level of maintenance experience, this course will equip you with the valuable skills and understanding that will enhance your maintenance career.

Too often the maintenance department is seen as the cause of why assets are unavailable, in poor condition yet are costing too much to maintain. By comparison, pace setting companies see maintenance as adding value to their assets and employ an integrated, holistic approach to their maintenance activities. This 3-day course will help you move towards that pace setting performance.

This course is based on an integrated maintenance model that has been used by leading companies and consultants with success and recognised as best practice. Participants will learn the total impact that maintenance can have on a business, identify key elements (and value) of effective maintenance for their own plants to not only reduce costs but also improve performance. The critical types of maintenance will be covered from day-to-day activities to shutdowns and reliability improvement. The course will break down traditional functional boundaries and encourage a holistic approach to maintenance.

With an organisation’s maintenance process only as good as its weakest link, this course will guide participants through all the key steps of a maintenance process and its supply chain. Participants will understand what is considered a good standard for each step in the maintenance process, how to identify the weakest links and subsequently how they can accelerate their performance improvement.

 

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the challenges and objectives facing maintenance organisations today
  • Demonstrate the importance of work order systems and use techniques for time estimations and priority assignments
  • Prepare a preventive maintenance program
  • Apply project management techniques to effectively manage major maintenance activities and shut downs
  • Use capital budgeting techniques to evaluate maintenance capital expenditures
  • Demonstrate understanding of how to maintain the optimal stock levels of spare parts to ensure operational continuity
  • Prepare the right Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to evaluate and improve performance in maintenance

This course is not just for maintenance professionals. Maintenance teams cannot perform without effective integration with operations and supply chain functions. Availability losses are often caused by operations or design issues and pace setting companies have generated significant benefits by integrating operation and maintenance strategies and working more collaboratively.

This course will help all members of the operations and maintenance teams and their supply chain better understand their respective roles in ensuring that maintenance is benefitting and not inhibiting their business.
