Learn how to conduct a maintenance requirements analysis that connects maintenance actions with business benefits.

This process helps ensure your operating expense claims are defensible, which the Australian Competition Tribunal recommends.

In this course, you’ll:

  • explore the four primary analysis methods of a maintenance requirements analysis
  • use basic analytical tools to assess future maintenance costs during the design process
  • use these tools to amend the initial solutions and develop accurate costs throughout the asset lifecycle.

When you’ve completed the course, you’ll know how to develop defensible maintenance budgets. You'll also learn how to develop a defensible maintenance program as a budgeted commitment in an asset management plan.

Learning outcomes

Learning outcomes

  • Understand the asset lifecycle and that it can have qualitative risk determined at any part of that process
  • Comprehend how managing physical assets relates to other systems in an organisaton
  • Know how to decide the ongoing management and maintenance of any asset
  • Widen your design focus—design an asset to function and be maintained across its entire life, not just at a single point in time

Is this course for you?

This course will suit you if you’re a part of an engineering and maintenance team that contributes to asset management (maintenance) plan development. This includes:

  • asset managers
  • engineers
  • supervisors
  • maintenance planners
  • maintenance schedulers
  • financial planners.

There are no prerequisites for this course.

Topics we'll cover

Topics we'll cover

  • Maintenance and its role in the risk management process
  • Components of the Maintenance Requirements Analysis (MRA) process
  • Key elements of Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA), Reliability-Centred Maintenance (RCM), Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) and Task Analysis (TA)
  • Applying the FMECA and RCM process to a simple asset
  • Applying quantitative risk-based decision-making algorithms to optimise RCM task periods
  • Applying the MRA processes of LORA and TA to develop a complete preventive maintenance plan
  • Reliability-Centred Maintenance
Towards chartered

Towards chartered

Take this course to build skills and knowledge in the following Engineers Australia Chartered status competencies*:

4. Develop safe and sustainable solutions
6. Identify, assess and manage risks
13. Local engineering knowledge
14. Problem analysis
16. Evaluation

Great summary of asset maintenance requirements for RCM and FMECA. Helped to fill the gaps in knowledge I had.
