Advanced Preventive and Predictive Maintenance

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.

Top Learning Objectives

  • Gain recognition, confidence, and credibility by putting the best ‘YOU’ forward and using 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 the mindset 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 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.
  • You will increase business profitability, credibility, and efficiency.
