Course Details


  • An understanding of Machine Failure Analysis and Troubleshooting techniques
  • An understanding of a range of Planned & Predictive Maintenance Technologies
  • Knowledge of the potential contribution of each these technologies to maintenance efficiency
  • Guidelines indicating how these technologies can interact with and support each other
  • Hints and Tips for practical application of these technologies so as to achieve the best results
  • A practical approach to developing an action plan to utilize these technologies in their own areas of responsibility, fitting them into the overall maintenance strategy, and measuring benefits
  • Allow the delegate to carry out analysis of machine failures
  • Enable the delegate to develop a proactive maintenance regime within the organization.
  • Give the delegate confidence to carry out failure analyses thereby avoiding repetitive failures.
  • Allow tighter control of maintenance budgets by the avoidance of unplanned equipment failures in service.
