Major world companies from the Industrial production industry have developed their maintenance practices based on the optimisation of predictive maintenance management system. This approach works well for both stationary and rotating equipment and includes continuous condition monitoring and the detailed inspection of the equipment’s vital elements. The optimisation of the maintenance activities includes the spare parts handling, the selection of the right size and skill of the maintenance crew with consideration of potential outsourcing i.e. subcontracting. Based on the collected data on the equipment’s reliability in operation, the Maintenance department can complete the Fitness for Service analysis based on which the decision can be made about the 3Rs: Run, Repair, or Replace, for the particular component of the equipment. The final decision regarding equipment replacement depends very much on the economic and safety aspect that must be taken into consideration.

This training course is intended to introduce the participant to the process of making decisions regarding equipment maintenance optimization, including equipment replacement. Various optimization techniques will be presented, and the optimization criteria explained.


By attending this unique Optimising Equipment Maintenance Strategy training course, participants will:

  • Identify equipment failures and their impact on plant reliability
  • Understand the cost-effectiveness of the Preventive/Predictive Maintenance program
  • Apply techniques of optimization of various maintenance activities
  • Define criteria for work-crew size, spare parts, and equipment replacement
  • Make the important decision on the basis of the cost and benefit analysis
  • Incorporate safety objectives to the equipment repair or replacement optimization
  • Understand maintenance methodologies and economic aspects
  • Apply spare parts handling and storage modeling
  • Learn risk assessment and management
  • Define equipment inspection and fitness for service analysis


This training course is suitable for a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • The operation, technical production & service professionals
  • Technical professionals responsible for the maintenance and repair of equipment
  • Professionals involved in inspection and reliability
  • Technical professionals dealing with risk assessment and integrity analysis
  • Technicians dealing with regulating and metering and other measurements


The Optimising Equipment Maintenance Strategy training course is developed based on the adult learning concept. The course will be highly interactive, with opportunities to advance your opinions and ideas. Participation is encouraged in a supportive environment. To ensure the concepts introduced during the course are understood, they will be reinforced through a mix of learning methods, including lecture-style presentations, open discussion, case studies, simulations, and group work.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
