Designed to assist maintainers, operators, supply officers, engineers and other stakeholders understand the total approach to ensuring assets deliver their required level of reliability and performance throughout their operational life.
Reliable Assets involves delivering effective asset management plans that take into account measurements of assets; condition, past work history and other measurements which report on the potential risks that assets will fail in the future when required to operate or perform their function. The plans document necessary actions, prioritised on a risk basis, along with the likely costs and timing which will ensure problems are resolved before they lead to failure.
This course will assist individuals who wish to understand more about improving the performance of their assets and deliver long term, sustainable benefits. The course presents a range of essential techniques and important concepts in asset management, which can be applied within the context of the roles of the participants.
Advice is provided to allow refinement of the course material to asset-specific requirements in the participant’s work place, eg fixed plant, mobile assets, linear assets, facilities etc.
