Engineering assets may refer to mining facilities, manufacturing facilities, telecommunication systems, vehicle fleets, power generation stations, and chemical processing facilities. These assets represent a significant amount of capital investment. Their management including maintenance plays a critical role to ensure effective utilization of their full capacity and their useful life, minimal costs in their operation and maintenance, and the best reliability and safety behaviour. Engineering Asset Maintenance Management is a 2-day short course that covers paradigms, concepts, strategies, and tools that are useful in effective maintenance management of engineering assets.
The objective of the course is to ensure that the attendees will be able to use maintenance management tools in their work to improve the effectiveness of their maintenance practice and ensure cost-effective operation of their organizationâ€™s engineering facilities.
Anyone whose job is related to ensuring effective operation of engineering facilities; Maintenance engineers; Maintenance technicians; Maintenance managers; Reliability engineers; Quality engineers; Project engineers; Production supervisors; Inventory control managers.
