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.

Alastair Krebs has over 30 years' experience in Asset Integrity and Reliability management, gained within the power generation and onshore/offshore hydrocarbon supply and processing industries. He has worked at a senior level both onshore and offshore for major contractors and clients, and has acquired extensive experience in the development and implementation Maintenance and Integrity Management Systems.
Alastair was a guest lecturer in Operational Asset Maintenance and Integrity Management Systems, and HSE Management Systems at Curtin University in Perth as part of their Masters’ Degree in Petroleum Engineering. He also, with Mark, delivers the Safety Reliability Integrity Management unit at Curtin University.
Alastair has presented numerous papers on Reliability Centred Maintenance, Reliability and Bench Marking, and The Adaptive Process for Maintenance and Integrity at Keynote Technical seminars throughout the world. Alastair also has extensive experience in the specification and implementation of computerised maintenance management systems such as Maximo, SAP and IFS.
Adam Zaranski is a qualified Mechanical Engineer with over 30 years’ experience in the resources and engineering sector including consulting, coal seam gas, large water infrastructure assets, resource mining and processing (coal, bauxite and gold).
Adam has worked in operational and maintenance roles for large multinational mining companies around Australia and overseas. He has worked for international Original Equipment Manufacturers in a national role to deliver projects and maintenance services for large-scale assets. He also has experience working in both open cut and underground mining operations to deliver site wide improved asset performance. As the mechanical engineer for a greenfield underground gold mine he was involved in all aspects of design, construction and then maintenance.
Adam has worked in the gas industry as well as consulted to Coal Seam Gas clients to improve maintenance and reduce risk to assets. He experienced in managing stakeholder engagements between mining and petroleum operations to deliver safe operational interactions. He has also carried out extensive maintenance system assessments and audits to then provide training and change management to improve operations.
