Private: Plant Reliability

High plant reliability is critical for every successful company, and it has never been more important than it is in the present economic climate.

The costs associated with equipment downtime and reduced production can be significant, and engineers must ensure that you are using every possible means of maximising plant reliability and performance. Of the five fundamental ways in which engineers can approach the maintenance of plant, one of the least commonly used (because it is least commonly understood) is Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM).

The heart of an RCM approach is the creation and exploitation of reliability models which use previous failure data to predict future plant performance and hence permit the selection of a maintenance strategy and frequency optimisation of planned maintenance activities. Reliability modelling as part of an integrated maintenance strategy is an approach that can no longer be sidelined or ignored by high performing companies.

This EuroMaTech programme is a combination of instructor-led topic areas and extensive computer-based analysis and modelling. You will learn in detail about, and practice using, best-of-breed approaches to statistical failure data analysis and reliability modelling. Furthermore, throughout the programme you will have the opportunity to analyse your own data and to ask lots of questions about how best to apply reliability analysis and modelling techniques in your organisation.

The programme delivers many practically-based technical solutions to reliability improvement, and delegates will discuss these concepts and practice using them via a range of practical tools applied to real-world case studies and data.

  • This is a specialist analytical and modelling programme that is designed for specialists in technical maintenance. It involves extensive statistical analysis and data modelling methods. Attendees need to be computer literate, familiar with and competent at using Microsoft Excel, and must have technical backgrounds, ideally to degree standard in an engineering or related technical subject.
  • Explore and understand the power contained in maintenance history records (failure data), and how this can be harnessed using statistical approaches to improve maintenance (and hence overall plant) performance
  • Analyse failure data using a range of first principles and industry standard methods, all implemented in Microsoft Excel
  • Understand failure mode shape analysis and thereafter to extract failure mode shapes from history record data and use this to optimise Planned Maintenance (PM) activities
  • Understand the theory and application of reliability modelling
  • Apply the theory of reliability modelling to a range of practical case studies, using the teaching version of an industry standard reliability modelling software package
  • Develop from first principles a practical and comprehensive reliability modelling and statistical analysis toolbox in Microsoft Excel, and use this to analyse numerous practical case studies
  • Use reliability models to predict future spare parts requirements and the proportions of maintenance time that will be spent in reactive (breakdown) and proactive (PM/PPM) maintenance  activities
  • Explore the implementation of a Reliability Centred Maintenance approach as part of a modern maintenance management strategy, including a detailed cost-benefits analysis of a real application

  • It is highly recommended to Reliability Engineers, Maintenance Planners, Maintenance Supervisors and Maintenance Engineers
Training methodology

This programme is delivered using a combination of instructor-led topic areas and extensive hands-on computer based activities, which will give delegates the opportunity to model and analyse real plant data (including their own if they choose to bring it).

Reliability models will be developed in a leading reliability analysis package, and also in Microsoft Excel, which will be used to analyse real data.

Delegates will actually write their own modelling software in Excel and will use this to explore a wide range of reliability modelling methods. They will also compare the performance of their own models with that of sector leading software packages.

The software that delegates write will be fully functioning and highly capable, and will enable them to perform detailed reliability analyses of their own plant at any time in the future.
