Leading industrial organizations are moving away from reactive (“fix-it-when-it-breaks”) maintenance into predictive and preventive maintenance (“anticipating, sophisticated maintenance planning, and fix-it-before-it-breaks”) as part of a life cycle focused Asset Management approach. This evolution to Maintenance Excellence requires well-planned and executed actions on several fronts. Although maintenance planning plays a critical role within the overall physical asset management processes, many organisations are still struggling to get it implemented properly and reap the benefits that it brings.

Maintenance Excellence provides great opportunities to optimize the performance of your assets and maintenance processes to achieve maximum return on investment (ROI). By understanding the fundamental process behind maintenance planning and by reducing costs and downtime through advanced maintenance management, while achieving high levels of safety and quality you will be able to get the best out of your assets. 

This Certificate in Creating Maintenance Excellence training course introduces participants to creating maintenance excellence. It demonstrates both the background to several methodologies, and its practical application to achieve the best bottom-line results. 

This training course places the emphasis on the key processes and techniques of maintenance planning & maintenance management that are necessary to create Maintenance Excellence.

This Energy Training Centre training course will highlight:

  • Asset Management: a business-like approach of maintenance management
  • Using KPI’s and the balanced scorecard to measure performance
  • Assessing Asset Management maturity and determine the roadmap for improvement
  • The business case for Asset Management improvement - cost/benefit thinking
  • Understanding risk and an introduction to a Risk Based Maintenance approach
  • Life Cycle Management with aspects like Systems Engineering and RAMS requirements
  • Life Cycle Costing
  • The latest concepts and techniques of Predictive and Smart Maintenance
  • The building blocks of an efficient planning function
  • A fast track programmed maintenance development process
  • Planning work for quality and efficiency
  • Scheduling work in a manner that ensures the continuity of operations
  • Gaining the commitment of operations to the maintenance plan and schedule
  • Generating performance indicators that pinpoint problems and opportunities
  • Eliminating equipment defects through detection, disclosure, planning, scheduling and execution

This training course is split in two modules:

MODULE I - Certificate in Advanced Maintenance Management

MODULE II - Certificate in Maintenance Planning

Each modules is structured and can be taken as a stand-alone training course; however, delegates with will maximise their benefits by traking Module 1 and 2 back-to-back as a 2-week training course.

By the end of the Certificate in Creating Maintenance Excellence training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the basic principles of Asset Management as a framework for managing and optimizing maintenance
  • Identify common maintenance Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and develop the maintenance department scorecard
  • Assess the organizational Asset Management maturity and develop a roadmap for improvement
  • Examine the organizational and managerial considerations for highly effective Risk Based Maintenance
  • Understand Life Cycle Management and the way Systems Engineering and RAMS could support this
  • Determine the Life Cycle Costs of an asset
  • Demonstrate the latest concepts and techniques with regard to Predictive and Smart Maintenance
  • Set up master data to support asset maintenance
  • Facilitate the development and implementation of programmed maintenance
  • Develop task plans and procedures that meet safety, quality and efficiency criteria
  • Initiate the acquisition of logistics to enable execution of backlog work
  • Compile a work schedule for a forthcoming period in consultation with stakeholders
  • Produce performance indicator based reports that expose problem areas

This Certificate in Creating Maintenance Excellence training course is a combination of instructor lead topic areas and class discussions. The training course will be conducted along with interactive workshop principles. Experiences from different areas will be discussed. There will be many opportunities for discussion and sharing experiences.

This Certificate in Creating Maintenance Excellence training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals involved in the area of creating maintenance excellence, but will greatly benefit:

  • All professionals involved in Maintenance Management
  • Professionals involved in work planning & control (planners, planning engineers)
  • Maintenance supervisors
  • Maintenance engineers
  • Maintenance team leaders and managers
  • Operations team leaders and managers
