Why Attend


To survive in today’s world of 'lean and mean' operations, we cannot wait for breakdowns. As a matter of fact, we should make responding to breakdowns the exception in our daily workload, not the norm. A successful and effective maintenance operation has to break away from the 'fix it when it breaks' mentality. The ultimate goal of the maintenance department should be to 'stop' things from breaking, increase assets availability and reliability and do so with the lowest possible cost.


This has certainly put an immense pressure on the maintenance department management team. In this course, various best practices will be presented that deliver the above objectives.



Course Methodology


The course uses a mix of interactive and hands-on techniques. Beside the brief presentations by the consultant and the participants, there will be many individual and group exercises. The course also includes a maintenance department audit checklist which the participants will individually complete during the course to evaluate the effectiveness of their respective departments.
