Workers and management in many companies complain that they are too busy to take care of equipment or to perform routine maintenance activities. They run the equipment until it breaks and then complain that they are behind in their work because the equipment is unreliable. Breakdowns create havoc in low-inventory factories. They also lower quality, cause increases in inventory, ruin morale, cost money, delay schedules and waste resources. Preserving and maintaining the reliability of equipment is an essential task in a successful factory.

An effective program usually include in-depth study of preventive maintenance techniques, followed by a thorough program of maintenance control in which vital equipment is repaired before it breaks down. It is better to fix problems when they are small and seemingly insignificant than to wait for the problem to rise to “broken” proportions. This course will provide an insight of maintenance management systems and how to integrate daily operations together with maintenance. This way the company not just benefit from minimum breakdown but also from higher productivity.

This course will cover topics on maintenance policies which include breakdown maintenance, design out maintenance, preventive maintenance, condition monitoring and failure patterns. Engineering asset maintenance discuss topics on maintaining engineering assets (machine and equipment), preventive maintenance as well as autonomous maintenance. Zero breakdown covers approaches towards zero breakdown, supplier appraisal and strategy for new and existing assets. Maintenance cost is important to keep the cost low and can be managed through proper manpower, spare parts, overhead and contractors planning. Maintenance outsourcing is commonly practiced and it is important to determining the right cost, proper contractor selection and control of contractors performance.

Statistical methods for maintenance improvement can be used for variation and diagnosis through structured data collection and analysis with the use of check sheet, Pareto diagram and cause and effect analysis. Occupational safety and health hazards in in maintenance can be achieved through safe maintenance procedures and maintenance control. Design for maintainability includes analysis of design failure and issue on reliability and maintenance frequency.


On completion of the course, participants shall be able to:

1.  Define and identify the features of maintenance management system
2.  Define and identify the steps to successfully implement preventive maintenance, maintenance
     prevention and equipment management
3.  Identify the steps to implement TPM company-wide maintenance management system
4.  Identify losses and failures associated with equipments and the manufacturing process
5.  Identify steps to eliminate losses and failures
