Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

Major world companies from the process and petrochemical industry have developed their maintenance practices based on the optimisation of predictive maintenance management system. This approach works well for both stationary and rotating equipment and includes continuous condition monitoring and the detailed inspection of vital elements of the equipment. The optimisation of the maintenance activities includes the spare parts handling, the selection of the right size and skill of maintenance crew with consideration of potential outsourcing i.e. subcontracting. Based on the collected data on reliability of the equipment in operation, Maintenance department can complete the Fitness for Service analysis based on which the decision can be made about 3Rs: Run, Repair or Replace, for the particular component of the equipment. Final decision regarding equipment replacement depends very much on the economic and safety aspect that must be taken into consideration.

This training course is intended to introduce the participant to the process of making decisions regarding equipment maintenance optimisation including equipment replacement. Various optimisation techniques will be presented and the optimisation criteria explained. This PetroKnowledge course will also include several workshops with case studies and real world problems to be solved. This will enable all participants to actively take part in the team work and classroom discussions.

The training course will feature:

  • Main types of equipment failure mechanisms
  • Maintenance methodologies and economic aspects
  • Spare parts handling and storage modeling
  • Risk assessment and management
  • Equipment inspection and fitness for service analysis
