Principles of Reliability-Based Maintenance

Engineering context

Across all sectors of engineering, including oil and gas, mining, utilities, defence and manufacturing, the design of systems and equipment is becoming more complex. This has resulted in the increased need for effective maintenance strategies to analyse and predict future reliability performance of infrastructure facilities and assets.

This two-day course will introduce you to fundamental reliability engineering concepts such as reliability-based maintenance, condition monitoring, Risk Based Inspection (RBI), Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) and Failure Modes Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA). You’ll also learn the characteristics of functional failure and standardised maintenance strategies, how to identify and apply the most suitable maintenance strategies and much more.

As a participant, you will be able to use basic maintenance and reliability principles to analyse and predict future reliability performance of operating assets, as well as developing appropriate maintenance strategies for practical application within the workplace.
