Understand how to use and implement a fourth generation asset maintenance and reliability system, and adapt to the changing needs of your organisation’s assets.

As systems and equipment become more complex, asset maintenance strategies have become even more important to assess and predict reliability.

This course equips you with the skills and knowledge to create strategies for maintenance and reliability across the lifecycle of your assets and facilities. You’ll learn how to create a strategy using a fourth-generation asset maintenance and reliability system that improves performance and reduces costs. And adapt to the changing needs of your assets without compromising safety, environmental and business goals.

Developed by an experienced trainer and expert in asset management, this course is based on practices outlined in the international standard (ISO 55000). Through interactive online content and video material featuring real-world examples, you’ll develop the skills to:

  • analyse and predict future reliability performance
  • develop and apply appropriate maintenance strategies
  • discuss and resolve maintenance and reliability issues

By the end of the course you’ll understand:

  • the fundamental connection between maintenance and reliability
  • root cause analysis, its different methodologies and when best to use them
  • reliability-centred maintenance (RCM), and failure modes effects and criticality analysis (FMECA) principles, and how to use them
  • the concept of asset lifecycle planning and how maintenance reliability management plays a significant role
