Fundamentals of Maintenance Best Practice (in Arabic)

Why Attend

This course covers the core principles of maintenance best practice. From Preventive and Predictive Maintenance, to Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) and Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA).  Participants will learn the fundamentals of choosing the correct maintenance strategy, including by budget, risk or suitability to the asset. Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) will be explained, along with their effectiveness for managing a successful maintenance program. Finally, participants will gain an insight into maintenance Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) and how their organizations can improve maintenance programs by following best in industry examples.
