Poor maintenance programs and activities often lead to lost production and spiraling upward costs resulting from escalating equipment unreliability. Conversely, an effective maintenance program can be the target of budget cuts since the benefits of the existing expenditures occasionally go unrecognized by those outside the maintenance organization. Ideally, therefore, a good maintenance program should provide the required reliability at minimum cost. Further, the validity of the program should be continuously acknowledged by management.
This course will present the ingredients of an effective, cost-efficient maintenance program together with continuous improvement aspects. It will also show not only how to validate the cost of the program but will also show how to justify to management any additional funding that may be necessary. During the course, there will be several exercises designed to provide a practical explanation of some of the material presented.
After participating in the seminar, you will be able to:
familiarize yourself with the components of good maintenance practices that can produce the required reliability in the most cost-effective manner
appreciate how existing maintenance activities can be both improved and acceptable
understand the techniques and benefits of good, efficient maintenance planning
recognize the need for, and the interpretation of, maintenance measures
become conversant with techniques for maintenance budgeting and effective reporting
