Introduction:

This program examines lean thinking and techniques for decision analysis with emphasis on the lean approach and responsiveness to the customer requirements. 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

Targeted Groups:

  • Operation Professionals
  • Maintenance Professionals
  • Reliability Professionals
  • Key Operations Supervisors
  • Internal Improvement Consultants

Course Objectives:

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

  • Improve productivity through the use of better, timelier information.
  • Understand how world-class organizations solve common asset management problems.
  • Optimize planning and scheduling resources.
  • Carry out optimized failure analyses.
  • Optimize asset management budgets by the avoidance of unplanned equipment failures in service.
  • Develop a practical approach of an action plan to utilize these technologies in their areas of responsibility, fitting them into the overall strategy, and measuring benefits.

Targeted Competencies:

  • Breaking a problem down into its constituent parts or components, in the framework of a hierarchy
  • Establishing importance or priority to rank the alternatives is a comprehensive & general way to look at the problem in a formal manner
  • Application of Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM) to practical problems
