Do you want to deepen your knowledge about maintenance and dependability? Then this course is for you.

 

About the course

The course focuses on the value of dependability in production systems and how maintenance contributes to the achievement of optimal dependability. A well-designed maintenance programme starts with the design of the production system, from the procurement of new equipment to system service life

We look at maintenance as a value adding activity, analyse maintenance data and apply different types of analysis, such as Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCC) and Root Cause Failure Analysis. You will also learn about maintenance management concepts and early equipment management as well as maintenance economy, planning and scheduling.


You will learn to

  • Describe the value of maintenance and relate maintenance activities to the cost categories they are associated with
  • Apply simple Life Cycle Costing (LCC) analysis for comparison of different solutions for achieving dependable production systems
  • Apply Root Cause Failure Analysis to poor dependability in production systems
  • Analyse and evaluate maintenance and dependability data from production equipment and based on such analysis, describe the resulting dependability of production systems
  • Describe the principles of the most common maintenance concepts.
