Maintenance & Reliability Best Practices are important for every successful individual and company. This course conveys many practical and new Maintenance and Reliability Best Practices concepts and techniques. You will examine these concepts and practice utilizing practical tools in case studies and discussion groups.

This course is a mix of instructor lead topic areas and class discussions. Interactive discussions will allow you to hear and learn best in class applications relating to maintenance planning and cost management strategies. You will have the chance to ask lots of questions in order to consider how best to apply these tools and techniques in your organisation.


• Assess and justify your maintenance programs using Value = Benefit – Cost.
• Utilise Life Cycle cost and risk planning to your facility assets.
• Target Maintainability and/or Reliability in the development of your facility maintenance plans.
• Learn the PLAN, DO, REVIEW cycle of continuous improvement.
• Apply the theory of this session using practical case studies.
• Practice using improvement techniques.
