This course provides participants with an in-depth and practical understanding of how to investigate and prevent equipment failure.
Failure analysis has historically been viewed as the domain of technical specialists, using complicated tools and programs to inform maintenance and operating teams what they have done incorrectly. This course demystifies failure analysis and places it in the hands of the maintenance and operating organizations in order to enable greater asset reliability.
The course explores models such as Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA) and Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA); it demonstrates how these can be broken down into simple steps that can engage the whole organization, from the operating team to the technical specialists.
The course also covers effective failure control and how to learn from the failure investigation or failure prevention analysis to not just identify the problem, but to implement effective robust controls as well in order to prevent future similar failures across an organization’s assets.
As well as best-in-class visuals and slides, this course includes a high level of interaction between the facilitator and participants to ensure the course is meeting their specific requirements. Numerous relevant case studies are utilized to demonstrate key points and a series of exercises are conducted to apply learning and to appreciate key aspects of best practice.
This is an interactive course. There are open question and answer sessions, regular group exercises, videos, case studies and presentations on best practice and the fundamentals of reliability improvement. Participants have the option and opportunity to share and discuss their own work experience and to identify issues and enhancements that can be immediately tackled/applied upon returning to their organizations.
This course is ideal for maintenance managers, operations managers and reliability professionals. Maintenance engineers, experienced supervisors, planners and functional specialists will also benefit greatly from this course.
