Failure Modes Effect Analysis & RCA

Why attend this Masterclass?

Maintenance’s key objective is to increase uptime without over-doing maintenance and the challenge lies in how to determine the right mix of reliability engineering and technical approaches. Many organizations also find themselves struggling to put in place an effective reliability tools to improve equipment integrity. The concept of FMEA and RCA 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 condition-based monitoring, reliability analysis, and the latest improvement tools for mining mobile equipment, participants will be able to prevent avoidable equipment failures and associated production losses and finally break the reactive maintenance cycle.

Salvo Global’s intensive Masterclass on “FMEA-RCA” is a practical “How-to-Do-it Guide” for implementing, measuring results and successfully applying today’s best practices for reliability engineering. In addition, delegates will be introduced to strategies that will enhance and improve equipment integrity through its life-cycle.

Top Learning Objectives

  • Define failure modes and effect analysis
  • Understand elimination and how to eliminate risks
  • Learn how to reduce top risks from equipment and process
