Asset, Reliability and Maintenance Management



Asset, Maintenance, Reliability and Asset Management Best Practices are critical for every successful individual and company. It is the job of the maintenance professional to optimize the maintenance effort using a structured and systematic approach. This training course covers all the fundamentals of Maintenance, Reliability and Asset Management that a suitably qualified professional would be expected to carry out during his duty starting with the first steps and building up in a stair case fashion to a fully functional maintenance organization.

Individuals exposed to this training will develop new insights into international best practices. They will learn why the best companies in the world see Maintenance management as the key to delivering the right quality product at the lowest costs.   Technical knowledge is key to effective control and peer respect within any maintenance organization; when this is achieved personal satisfaction follows. This seminar will give the delegate the required level of technical knowledge and skill to achieve that personal satisfaction.

On completion of this seminar the delegate will be able to critically analyse the methodologies employed within the organisation and instigate improvements where required.

This training course will feature:

  • Fundamentals of maintenance, reliability and asset management
  • Reliability modeling and failure modes for rotating and stationery machinery
  • Learning from major failures
  • Condition based maintenance technologies
  • Selection of appropriate maintenance strategies in asset management
  • Financial Concepts of Costs, Capital, Profit and Return On Investment
  • The Model for Asset Healthcare
  • Cost Impact of Equipment Failure and Degradation
  • Proactive Practices and Tools to Reduce Maintenance Costs
  • Failure Analysis to Focus Cost Reduction Efforts
  • Work Management to Improve Resource Efficiency



At the end of this  training seminar, you will learn to:

  • A solid understanding of Maintenance optimization best practice techniques
  • An understanding of a range of equipment failures and their implications to the operational organization.
  • The ability to design a maintenance plan for the upkeep and maintenance inspections of static and rotating plant.
  • A practical approach to developing an action plan to utilize these technologies in their own areas of responsibility, fitting them into the overall maintenance strategy, and measuring benefits
  • Integration of Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM), Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) and Condition Based Maintenance (CBM)
  • Reduce resource costs through efficient work management practices
