Key Learning Objectives

  • Learn how to develop and maintain effective asset management plans to take control of asset life events
  • Apply the most appropriate analysis and modelling methodologies to present life cycle forecasts, maintenance activity selection and optimal life determination
  • Master the process of developing effective zero based budgets, focused on reliability improvement of critical equipment
  • Ability to align the focus to be applied to new assets in support of operational readiness as opposed to ageing assets
  • Realise the importance of master data to support life cycle management and continual improvement

Who Will Benefit

The course is ideally suited to enable asset owners, asset management and maintenance practitioners, engineering and reliability professionals, business planners and analysts.

About the Course

The current economic climate focused on productivity and cost cutting which has followed our recent boom time has resulted in a unique situation.

There are significant amounts of new assets still being deployed, together with pressures to extend the life of ageing equipment. This has sparked a renewed interest in productivity and operational readiness initiatives based on a more thorough assessment of equipment health and integrity.

These efforts all rely on better management of information and the analysis of this information to identify the less obvious opportunities for improvement in productivity and savings.

Justification of options is now a basic requirement and detailed economical decision making tools and quantitative assessment of condition and health risks are required to support big decisions. This has led to an increased understanding of the need to improve asset knowledge and then to pro- actively manage and take control of asset life events.

The recent release of the ISO 5500X series on Asset Management Systems provides an effective mechanism to support asset life management.

This course is designed to bring all these elements together to demonstrate the practical applications of asset management plans, equipment productivity, life cycle and life cycle cost management with reference to relevant case studies to reflect on these key issues and its application to new and ageing assets.

Process, methodology and tool information will be provided electronically to assist participants with their efforts to manage their critical equipment.
