Explore how to improve asset availability and meet reliability goals by applying a risk-based approach to asset maintenance and operations


Explore how to improve asset availability and meet reliability goals by applying a risk-based approach to asset maintenance and operations. In the Risk-Based Asset Management (RBAM®) course, you practice how to prioritize reliability efforts on critical equipment and failures that impact your operation. RBAM incorporates reliability-centered maintenance (RCM) principles and continuous improvement practices like PDCA to position your program for decreased downtime, lower maintenance expenditures, and an acceptable total cost of ownership.

During the course, participants classify and analyze assets and failures to rank equipment criticality and draft a risk plan. Next, learners build a failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) to define control strategies and populate an equipment maintenance plan. Group activities in the class include examining how life cycle cost influences investment and choosing key performance indicators to manage a reliability program. Specific emphasis will be placed on the resources needed to create an asset management plan – a risk, maintenance and asset operations plan – that can manage the entire life cycle of an asset.


Learn How To

  • Draft components of an asset management plan: risk and maintenance plan
  • Describe what an asset management organization needs to know to manage risk and improve performance
  • Describe the four phases in a risk-based asset management model
  • List ways to extend the life of assets and evaluate their effectiveness
  • Use a failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) to analyze risks and map control strategies to failure modes
  • Describe how audits, reviews and key performance indicators drive continuous improvement
  • Practice applying a standard process for preventive maintenance optimization
  • Select the optimal strategy for renewal or disposal based on asset management strategy

Who Should Attend

This is ideal for people responsible for the design, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of capital assets and auxiliary equipment. This includes project engineers, reliability engineers, maintenance managers, operations managers, and engineering technicians.

Make Data-driven Decisions and Improve Quality, Productivity and Profitability


Predictive maintenance (PdM) is not a tool, technique or certification. Predictive maintenance is a philosophy that uses the equipment’s operating condition to make data-driven decisions and improve quality, productivity and profitability. Unlike industry courses that focus on applying specific technologies like vibration monitoring or oil analysis, this course focuses on establishing, managing and sustaining results from a comprehensive PdM program.

The Predictive Maintenance Strategy course considers predictive maintenance as a component of a larger asset management strategy to diagnose, prevent and postpone failures. During this three-day course, you will learn the theory and application of multiple PdM technologies. You will review critical success factors of results-producing PdM programs. Through group activities and case studies, you will determine which predictive technologies to use, how to set goals for your program, track progress and practice how to communicate results to different stakeholders. By the end of the session, you will have outlined what a successful PdM program can look like at your organization.


Learn How To

  • Explain how a combination of predictive maintenance, condition monitoring and non-destructive testing mitigates risk and optimizes your asset maintenance plan.
  • Describe the theory, application and safety considerations of 5 PdM technologies
    • Vibration analysis
    • Thermography
    • Tribology (oil analysis)
    • Ultrasonics
    • Motor circuit analysis
  • Recognize visual inspection as a component of a PdM program
  • Draft a predictive maintenance strategy that incorporates critical success factors in the following areas:
    • Data and measurement requirements
    • Planning and set-up
    • Monitoring the program
    • Showing results
  • Compare your current PdM program to best practices and build a plan to meet your PdM goals

Who Should Attend

Maintenance Managers, PdM Managers, Maintenance professionals, continuing education students, and any person responsible for justifying or managing duties related to a PdM program.
