Across all sectors of engineering the design of systems and equipment is becoming more complex. This has resulted in the increased need for effective maintenance strategies to analyse and predict future reliability performance of infrastructure facilities and assets.
This workshop is delivered over two x four-hour sessions and provides a basic understanding of Asset Maintenance and Reliability Management.
Based on the international standard (ISO55000), an industry expert facilitator will demonstrate that Maintenance and Reliability Management is integral to an effective Asset Management system.
You'll learn how to use maintenance and reliability principles to analyse and predict future reliability performance of operating assets, as well as develop appropriate maintenance strategies for your assets.

Alastair Krebs has more than 35 years’ experience in asset management, maintenance, integrity, and risk and reliability management. He has worked at a senior level, both onshore and offshore, for major contractors and clients across many industries. He has worked in hydrocarbon exploration, supply and processing industries, electrical power generation, mining resources, public utilities and infrastructure.
He is experienced in developing and implementing asset maintenance and integrity management systems and safety case documents for offshore oil and gas installations. He also has extensive experience in the specification and implementation of computerised maintenance management systems.
Alastair is also an adjunct lecturer in Curtin University’s Master of Petroleum Engineering and Master of Subsea Engineering programs, where he teaches asset management, risk and reliability, and operational HSE management systems.
Alastair often presents at keynote technical seminars worldwide on topics such as reliability-centred maintenance, reliability and benchmarking, and the adaptive process for maintenance and integrity.
