2-Day Condition-based Maintenance Awareness Course


Condition Monitoring technologies are developing at a rapid rate and a massive range of solutions is available. There are plenty of experts and vendors who know a lot about particular techniques. However, there seem to be too few people who have a good general overview of the range of techniques available. 
Some users end up buying solutions that do not give buisness benefits. Perhaps this is because the business benefits were not considered (sometimes purchases are driven by people who are keen on the technology but do not address the business case), sometimes the solutions do not provide a technically feasible solution. In other cases the alternatives were not considered.
Buyers need to be in control. They need to consider all alternatives. They need to make sure the solutions selected are technically feasible, but also that they are worth doing, in other words that they they add value to the business. They need to know the sorts of questions to ask the experts.

Course Overview

This course is not designed to make people experts in any technique, but to give an overview of the options available and allow them to engage constructively with vendors and suppliers to find the best solutions for themselves.
The objectives of this course are:
- to make delegates more aware of the range of condition based tasks available
- to provide the framework for deciding whether such tasks are technically feasible and worth doing
- to enable them to ask the right questions of the experts/ vendors in order to apply such techniques effectively and make sound and defensible investment decisions

Course Content

The following condition-based techniques are covered in the course:
- The Human senses
- Product Quality Monitoring
- Performance Monitoring
- Dynamic effects monitoring (including vibration analysis)
- Particle analysis
- Chemical analysis
- Temperature effects monitoring
- Physical effects monitoring
- Electrical effects monitoring

Delivery Method

Learning points are reinforced by examples. Discussion and engagement are strongly encouraged. Exercises are used at several stages to ensure main points have been assimilated. In these exercises delegates have to select appropriate condition based techniques, compare different techniques to determine which is most cost effective, and evaluate the economics of investment decisions 


One of the exercises takes the delegates through the selection and evaluation of condition based maintenance options in an award-winning application of RCM (referenced elsewhere on this website - see Case Studies section). In other words, the examples are real tife examples, not hypothetical ones.


All delegates will receive a comprenensive set of notes


The course would normally be run at your site, but off site courses can be arranged if necessary
