Actionable Maintenance Engineering TacticsIt's no surprise that maintenance engineering efficiency (and cost-effectiveness) is directly proportional to maintenance planning. Yet a large proportion of manufacturing facilities and process plants don’t have adequate Work Order Systems in place for preventive maintenance inspections or predictive maintenance programs. Oftentimes, this leads to unplanned maintenance and high repair costs that take a toll on a facility's annual maintenance budget. So how can you develop an effective Maintenance Work Order System for the scheduling and implementation of preventive and predictive maintenance? Delve into this online PDH course exploring actionable maintenance engineering, system analysis and performance management strategies to reduce the cost of facilities management and enhance operating efficiency.
Course OverviewThis course kicks off by walking through common maintenance engineering statistics and facilities management recommendations for maintenance organizations before jumping into examples of computer-based Work Order Systems. We'll then detail maintenance personnel leadership and the specific skills needed to optimize maintenance engineering. Next, we'll cover the role of maintenance engineering in spare parts inventory before diving into the best practices for mechanical, electrical and controls preventive and predictive maintenance procedures within a maintenance organization. Within this discussion, we'll outline considerations for maintenance training, support and safety. We'll then define Motor Repair vs. Replace Decisions as well as delineate proven action plans for cost reduction and energy conservation.
