INTRODUCTION

This programme initially looks at all of the core maintenance management disciplines that support effective work planning, scheduling and work control. The second week builds on the foundation knowledge introduced during the first week by introducing participants to Maintenance Auditing and Benchmarking. These key tools can be used to ensure the core disciplines are maintained, to drive improvement, identify best practices, and assist with the formulation of strategies.  This conference will cover:

  • Modern Maintenance Management Practices
  • Maintenance Policies and Logistics Planning
  • Failuture Management
  • Work Planning, Scheduling and Control
  • Information and Performance Management
  • Maintenance Auditing & Benchmarking
  • Performance Measurement

CONFERENCE OBJECTIVES

Leading industrial organizations are evolving away from reactive ("fix-it-when-it-breaks") management into predictive, productive management ("anticipating, planning, and fix-it-before-it-breaks"). This evolution requires well-planned and executed actions on several fronts. You will:

  • Identify planning best practices and key elements for taking action on them
  • Understand how world-class organizations solve common planning problems
  • Evaluate your practices compared to those of others
  • Improve the use of your information and communication tools
  • Improve productivity through use of better, more timely information
  • Create and preserve lead-time in work management and use it for planning and scheduling resources
  • Improve consistency and reliability of asset information
  • Achieve more productive turnarounds
  • Optimize preventive and predictive maintenance strategies
  • Audit your maintenance operations
  • Learn how to conduct a benchmarking study
  • Use the results to develop and improvement strategy
  • Establish Auditing and Benchmarking as a key element of the maintenance strategy

The conference will impart an understanding of how such techniques can be applied as part of a broad systematic approach to proactively managing and improving maintenance

CONFERENCE METHODOLOGY

Facilitated by experienced maintenance specialists, this conference will be conducted as a highly interactive work session, encouraging participants to share their own experiences and apply the conference material to real-life situations. Case studies from different industries will be investigated. conferencesize will be limited to 30 delegates in order to stimulate discussion and efficiency of subject coverage. Each delegate will receive an extensive reference manual, as well as case studies, while worked out solutions will be handed out to the delegates on conclusion of group discussions.

To ensure the concepts introduced during the conference are understood, they will be reinforced through a mix of learning methods, including lecture style presentation, open discussion, case studies, simulations and group work.
