Why Attend

To survive in today’s world of 'lean and mean' operations, we cannot wait for breakdowns. As a matter of fact, we should make responding to breakdowns the exception in our daily workload, not the norm. A successful and effective maintenance operation has to break away from the 'fix it when it breaks' mentality. The ultimate goal of the maintenance department should be to 'stop' things from breaking, increase assets availability and reliability and do so with the lowest possible cost.

This has certainly put an immense pressure on the maintenance department management team. In this course, various best practices will be presented that deliver the above objectives.
