Preventive and Predictive Maintenance Master Class (November 16-19, 2021) -

DUBLIN--()--The "Preventive and Predictive Maintenance Master Class" conference has been added to's offering.

Preventive and Predictive Maintenance has always been the best method of preserving assets. Whether you maintain factories, buildings or fleets, the PM system can be the core of the proactive effort. There is much to know to design effective PMs for different types of equipment.

This course will, in a short time, bring an entire department to a deeper understanding of how to make PM and PdM more effective. Participants will be introduced to the various technologies and approaches including the latest ones such as Big Data and AI etc.

This jam-packed course will introduce you to best practices from around the world. You'll be able to answer:

  • What specific activities ensure uptime and when to consider each one
  • How to use high technology to make an impact on your reliability
  • Learn techniques to maximize benefits from your CMMS - Tomorrow!
  • How to set up a pilot in IIoT sensors and analytics of the data produced (without breaking the bank)
  • How to build a technology road map and timeline
  • Ways to reengineer maintenance that do not compromise the safety, environmental security, or uptime
  • Speed-up and improve training with Virtual Reality
  • How to talk to top management about caring for your assets
  • Ways to cut the cost of your repairs by teaching five planning techniques to your tradespeople
  • In-sourcing and TPM: what is it, how and when to do it, and who to do it with
  • How to use the CMMS to help improve technicians
  • Maintenance budgeting and effective financial modeling
  • How to compute the optimum intervals for component replacements and other preventive/predictive maintenance efforts

This course is mainly for maintenance supervisors, managers, PM leads, CMMS managers, planners, engineers, and people who are in training for these positions. PM techs can also benefit from this training. There is also an advantage to having representatives from operations (particularly production control) for their perspective and input.
