Dynamic Reliability Centered Maintenance

Increasing availability, reliability and efficiency is becoming more and more of an essential factor for companies to remain competitive. Reducing cost, eliminating failure and improving safety, performance and worker morale are also key to ensuring that the organizations’ goals are met.

To achieve reliable and efficient process, major decisions needs to be made about maintenance and design of existing assets, processes and facilities.

The RCM framework takes a holistic approach to determine asset management requirements, encompassing integrity, health, safety, environment, financial risk considerations and technology. RCM is globally recognized as a necessary grounding and direction for maintenance heads, managers and operational staff involved with maintenance and reliability improvement. It has a proven track record of success across a wide range of industries. However, to realise the potential benefits, RCM needs to be applied correctly and properly implemented.

Participants will receive for all courses: A full participant’s manual, presentation, and exercises, extensive topic related electronic reference, and digital copies of classroom case studies and exercises.

The program will be delivered over four three-hour sessions on consecutive days.

Top Learning Objectives
