This introduction to a very broad subject comprises about 100 slides,and the anticipated study time is around 2 hours.
The course starts with an explanation of what a good maintenance strategy is meant to achieve. It then goes on to introduce "Reliability Centred Maintenance" (RCM) as a means of devising an effective strategy. Some variations on the classic RCM methodology are described, including SRCM® and Risk Based maintenance. A cost-based approach to RCM is also outlined. The course goes on to suggest how a maintenance strategy review project might be organised, and concludes by discussing the challenges that must be faced when implementing the results of such a project.
