Predictive Maintenance Strategy Training

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.

Additional Information

Excellent material! I was impressed with how the course stressed the importance of planning and scheduling. Additionally, my eyes were opened to the importance of specific and repeatable documented maintenance tasks.
