Maintenance’s key objective is to increase uptime without over-doing maintenance and the challenge lies in how to determine the right mix of Preventive Maintenance and Predictive Maintenance. Many organizations also ﬁnd themselves struggling to put in place an effective Maintenance regime to improve equipment integrity. The concept of Preventive and Predictive maintenance is extensively known and the potential benefits are widely accepted, but still, many maintenance practitioners have failed to successfully take advantage of the techniques and technology. By mastering techniques like the PF-Curve and Statistical Analysis and the latest condition monitoring techniques, participants will be able to prevent avoidable equipment failures and associated production losses and finally break the reactive maintenance cycle.
Salvo Global’s 3-day intensive Masterclass on “Advanced Preventive & Predictive Maintenance” is a practical “How-to-Do-it Guide” for implementing, measuring results and successfully applying today’s best practices for Preventive (PM) and Predictive Maintenance (PdM). In addition, delegates will be introduced to strategies that will enhance and improve PM & PdM.
This course is designed to build competency in maintenance and to enhance the equipment reliability and overall plant productivity. It covers all the fundamentals of advanced maintenance that a suitably qualified professional would be expected to carry out during his duty starting with the first steps and building up to a fully functional advanced maintenance.
