Maintenance routines – what we actually do to the equipment to maintain its availability and reliability are the core of any asset care plan and the planned/preventative maintenance program. Yet the origin of the content of these care plans can be lost in time, targeted inappropriately or just plain ineffective.
Learn some basic theory behind a practical program, what are we trying to address, how is the frequency determined what tactics are appropriate? Answer these questions and many more and learn how to write practical maintenance routines that are targeted, unambiguous, efficient and effective.
The course is designed to meet the needs of maintenance professionals, personnel compiling and managing asset care, those driving availability and reliability improvement and/or maintenance standards, these typically include:
- Maintenance Planners and deputies
- Maintenance Manager/supervisors
- Key leaders from each Maintenance craft
- Key Operations Supervisors
- CMMS Administrator or key users
- Maintenance support assistants
- Change agents and engineering business sponsors
Learn how to
- Develop asset care plans that can provide a holistic care package for major equipment
- Determine appropriate tasks and frequencies
- Write precise and unambiguous task instruction
- Maintenance tactics need to be appropriate to the machine, likely failures and failure patterns
- To construct an Asset Care Package (ACP)
- To collate ACP into practicable maintenance routines
- Adjust the frequency of maintenance routines with confidence
Know how to
- View all aspects of an asset care package
- Produce effective and efficient maintenance tasks
- Standardise Planned Maintenance Routines
