Preventive and Predictive Maintenance Management


The military initially pioneered preventive maintenance as a means to increase the reliability of their naval vessels. By simply expending the necessary resources to conduct maintenance activities intended by the equipment designer, equipment life is extended and its reliability is increased. In addition to an increase in reliability, more money is saved in comparison to the cost of a program just using reactive maintenance. Studies indicate that these savings can amount to as much as 12% to 18% on the average. Depending on a facility's current maintenance practices, present equipment reliability, and facility downtime, there is little doubt that many facilities are purely reliant on reactive maintenance. By implementing a proper preventative maintenance program, they could save much more than 18%.
This course will give participants an in-depth understanding of preventive and predictive maintenance practices; it will also cover many best practice techniques such as Total Productive Maintenance, Reliability Centered Maintenance, Condition Based Monitoring, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis, and Root Cause Failure Analysis

Targeted Groups:

  • Maintenance Managers
  • Maintenance Engineers
  • Maintenance Supervisors
  • Planning Engineers
  • Operations Professionals
  • Engineering and Purchasing Staff
  • Materials Divisions

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course the participants will be able to:
