Asset Maintenance and Reliability Introduction

Maintenance & Reliability on drilling rigs or assets

2 x 3 hour sessions presenting fundamental asset maintenance and reliability principles. The course aims to provide participants a basic fundamental understanding of reliability based maintenance concepts.

This course has been developed for Process Engineers, Maintenance and Reliability Engineers, Maintenance Managers, Operations Managers, and Asset Management Professionals. Participants benefit from experienced lecturers and updated curriculum aimed at providing an introduction to, or suplimenting a candidates’ knowledge of Asset Maintenance and Reliability.

Course overview

The Asset Maintenance and Reliability Training Programs comprises of 2 x 3 hour sessions presenting fundamental asset maintenance and reliability principles. The course aims to provide participants a basic fundamental understanding of reliability based maintenance concepts such as:

  • Definition of an asset and identifying maintainable assets.
  • Definitions of Reliability, Availability and Maintainability and how these terms affect how we maintain assets.
  • The growing expectations of maintenance
  • Ability to identify equipment failures and characteristics
  • The ability to identify and understand typical Maintenance Tactics/ Strategies and where they are used
  • Gain knowledge of the basic principles of Failure Mode & Effect Analysis principles used to improve asset reliability and performance
  • Gain knowledge of the basic principles of Reliability Centered Maintenance principles used to improve asset reliability and performance
  • Understand when and when not to apply RCM and/ or FMEA
