Asset Maintenance Requirements for Engineering Teams

Engineering context

Recently the Australian Competition Tribunal placed an emphasis on organisations to develop a bottom up approach for their operating expense claims to be defensible. This process, also known as Maintenance Requirements Analysis, comprises of  four primary analysis methods that connect every maintenance action with its business benefit.

This two-day course will explore basic analytical tools to assess future maintenance costs during the design process, developing a sustainable asset solution. The tools will also amend the initial solutions to develop accurate costs throughout the asset life cycle.

Upon completion, you'll gain the core knowledge necessary to develop defensible maintenance budgets. Using case studies and examples, you'll also learn how to develop a defensible maintenance program as a budgeted commitment in an asset management plan.
