World-class Preventive and Predictive Maintenance for Efficient Plant Operations Reliability and Maintenance Management

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 5-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.

Top Learning Objectives

  • Adapt advance techniques such as PF Curve and statistical analysis to optimize your maintenance program
  • Analyse and improve your existing maintenance program and eliminate or reduce your current failures
  • Minimize waste in Preventive Maintenance (PM) activity to diminish unnecessary costs
  • Master advanced techniques such as statistical analysis and PF curve to optimize predictive maintenance
  • Distinguish why PM & PdM fail and how to make it more effective
  • Gain insights into Predictive (Pdm) & Condition Monitoring techniques like oil analysis and vibration analysis
  • Develop & analyse task list for different equipment for better planning & scheduling
  • Understand the impacts of equipment life cycle & failure modes on PM and identify opportunities for improvements
  • Justify the Cost/Risk/Value for Preventive and Predictive maintenance to sustain management commitment and support
  • Associate CMMS to enterprise software and process control systems to improve maintenance process efficiency

Who Should Attend?

  • Operations/ Maintenance
  • Planning/ Scheduling
  • Plant/ Project Efficiency
  • Plant Performance Management and Reliability
  • Asset Management
  • Cost Control/ Procurement Process Management

From industries including but not limited to:

  • Oil and Gas
  • Power Generation
  • Manufacturing
  • Exploration and Production
  • Utilities

Outcome of this Workshop

  • Gain recognition, confidence and credibility by putting the best ‘YOU’ forward and use upward communication and downward communication to create new opportunities within your organization
    Besides that, you will learn to break down the barriers and silos that stand between team cooperation and organizational effectiveness and reduce frustration
  • Furthermore, you will learn to build mind-set and productive workplace relationships, settle more confidently into your own ‘comfort zone’ as a manager, leader and champion of change not to mention gain control of events around you and shape them to meet the right objectives
  • You will know how to respond to and manage resistance, fear, conflict and stress during change, harnessing the power of diversity and using it to drive higher and greater performance
  • You will be able to come up with your own version of a systematic approach for your continuous learning and improvement about the subject and undergo important self-discovery, situational understanding and some important perception shifts that will help you think differently about the way people interact, learn and grow together. Finally, you will increase business profitability, credibility and efficiency
