Maintenance & Reliability Best Practices & Cost Effective Implementation - Online
Course Description
Maintenance & Reliability Best Practices are critical for every successful individual and company. The first module of this training course delivers many practical and new Maintenance and Reliability Best Practices concepts and tools. You will discuss these concepts and practice using practical tools in case studies and discussion groups. The second module then helps you decide in a rational way which activities are best done with internal resources and which are best outsourced. Tools and techniques are introduced which will help you ensure that outsourcing contracts are comprehensive and avoid the common pitfalls. The costs associated with equipment downtime and reduced production can be significant. Learning how to effectively manage all aspects of your industrial facility is a must.
