Construction, Operations & Maintenance Management
Course Description
The objective of the course is to provide an integrated program covering the key areas of Operations & Maintenance Management concerned with Planning, Scheduling and Total Productive Maintenance. The program aims to provide an overview of methodology and practice, with a view to enabling delegates to be updated on current approaches, to understand current issues, and to be able to apply the relevant thinking and techniques in the context of their own organizations. This course is an advanced level course building on basic knowledge gained from earlier study and practical experience. It is designed for practicing project managers; construction managers; engineers; surveyors; planners and other professionals who require an in depth knowledge of more complex and sophisticated techniques to enable them to plan, monitor and control contracts with more confidence and deal more effectively with the problems which can occur if things go wrong. The course looks at tried and tested methods of risk analysis to minimize exposure to problems and considers fault avoidance as a necessary part of this.
The Training Course Will Highlight ?

Over this course will look at the management of a project from start to finish including the all-important “closing the loop” at the end where lessons are discussed and recorded. The interaction of time, cost and quality control will be a major underlying theme throughout together with a detailed study of risk techniques to be applied throughout the project to minimize problems and maximize client satisfaction and profitability. Fault recognition and avoidance and the maintenance of strict quality guidelines complete the course.

Training Objective

By the end of this course delegates will be able to:

  • Learn the methods to use to deliver a successful project
  • Achieve a detailed understanding of where contracts can go wrong and gain an insight into the techniques available to foresee and minimize or remove the causes
  • Learn risk strategies and risk control methods
  • Obtain a deeper understanding of the position of quality assurance and control as part of a risk containment strategy
  • Gain an understanding of how and why disputes arise and the methods of prevention and resolution.
