Maintenance and Reliability Masterclass


Course Description

The reliability of a producing machine cannot be kept constant during its operating life due to deterioration process especially in harsh operating conditions. This is why failures and malfunctions are expected if no thing is done to maintain the technical specifications of the machine. There are many ways to achieve reliable producing machine during its operating-life. One way is modelling the time to failure statistically to regularly plan maintenance actions. The model can be optimised with respect
to maintenance cost minimisation. In this course, participants will be provided with knowledge and experience of modelling, model application, maintenance optimisation for cost-effective replacement decisions and losses due to applying this technique.


All employees should have the necessary tools and training to enable them to identify and eliminate or reduce the hazards they may face in the work in which they spend their working days. This includes potential ergonomic hazards which are more difficult to identify due to the sometimes, long term effects involved.


Who Should Attend?

This course is designed for those who whish to apply maintenance effectively for maintaining machines’ quality and productivity, such as but not limited to engineers, work-group leaders and technicians with background in production, service & maintenance, condition monitoring, quality or production logistics.


Course Objectives

  • To provide the participants with the knowledge and experience concerning:
    • Theories, methods and tools for better understanding of reliability and dependability
