Decision Analysis for Operation & Maintenance program examines lean thinking and techniques for decision analysis with emphasize on the lean approach and prioritisation and the decision making process to be carried out by Operation, Maintenance and Safety Professionals. Decision-making is the most central human activity, intrinsic in our biology and done both consciously and unconsciously. We need it to survive. Taking a decision is not just a question of selecting the best alternative. Often one needs to prioritize all the alternatives for resource allocation among a portfolio of option or to examine the effect of changes introduced to initial judgments.
In this training course we learn how to set priorities and perform what-if analysis for improving decisions in the fields of operation, maintenance and safety. It is a hands-on experience as we get to use powerful software for decision making which is also user-friendly.
