The fundamental insights into plant reliability

Training
Maintenance & Reliability Engineering

This three-day training course is designed to teach the principles behind increasing the reliability of production installations. In this training you will learn how to apply these fundamental principles within your own organisation and which reliability techniques are best applied.

Reliability engineering occupies an important place within a modern asset management strategy and for making decisions within maintenance. Keeping reliability as high as possible is the starting point of Reliability Engineering.

This three-day training course is designed to teach the principles behind increasing the reliability of production installations. In this training you will learn how to apply these fundamental principles within your own organisation and which reliability techniques are best applied.

Learning objectives

  • Why you should invest in Reliability Engineering
  • How to transfer the principles of Reliability Engineering to others in your organization
  • How to draw up a failure mode driven maintenance strategy
  • The importance of criticality analysis
  • Important terms and definitions within Reliability Statistics and FRACAS (Failure Reporting, Analysis and Corrective Action System)
  • How to calculate the MTBF/MTTR, starting from static data 
  • How to apply reliability statistics - such as Weibull and Monte Carlo - to support decisions
  • What is the Life Cycle Costing philosophy and how do you perform LCC analyses
  • The importance of RCM (Reliability Centered Maintenance) and RCM philosophies, and the differences with FMEA (Failure Modes and Effect Analysis)
  • Root Cause Analysis (RCA)
  • Know which Condition Monitoring technique should be used to identify mechanical, electrical or static failures
  • The principles behind reliable KPIs and statistics

Over de lesgever

Alexander Herman is a civil engineer (KUL) and started his career in the plastic industry where he worked as a process and project engineer. After a few years, he switched to maintenance in the process chemistry at Cytec. There, as Mechanical Specialist and subsequently as Head of the Method Department, he built the bridge between Maintenance, Engineering and Production. With the Method Department, he was responsible for, among other things, drawing up and managing maintenance strategies and the CMMS, increasing equipment reliability, managing electrical installations, etc. In addition, he worked as a representative of the maintenance department on projects such as the implementation of Maximo, Spare part optimisation and Purchase indirect spend optimisation. As a member of the corporate Asset Management Team, he participated in setting, improving and spreading the corporate standards and also acted as an auditor in other Cytec plants worldwide.

Since 2011 he is Maintenace and Reliability Consultant at I-care. Together with his colleagues he helps customers with coaching and projects in Reliability Engineering and Operational Excellence.

Who is this training for?

Plant engineers, production managers, maintenance managers, top level maintenance technicians, reliability & maintenance engineers, and anyone involved in increasing plant reliability.
