Improving Equipment Reliability 

Improving Equipment Reliability.

This course teaches how to take your plant to a new level of maintenance excellence, moving from a reactive mode to a planned more. Successful implementation of this course will in a more efficient operation with reduced maintenance costs.

The advanced course is offered to MP2® and EAM® users. It is recommended for users who are ready to “move to the next level.“

How can equipment reliability be improved?

“Not all equipment is created equal”

To improve equipment reliability, a specific maintenance program is tailored for each machine, based on its importance and contribution to the manufacturing process.

The program is a mixture of condition based, time or interval based, reactive and proactive maintenance. These maintenance strategies are integrated to maximize equipment reliability while minimizing life-cycle costs .

Benefits of improving equipment reliability:
  • Maintenance budget is optimized-majority of spending is allocated to critical equipment
  • Minimize non-essential PM’s
  • Lengthen equipment life
  • Reduce equipment downtime

The course will cover the following:

  • Establish objectives of improving equipment reliability
  • Determine the key performance indicators (KPI’s) that will measure success
  • Determine criticality of production equipment
  • Review work history of production equipment, including the reasons why the equipment failed and the consequences of that failure
  • Develop a maintenance and reliability program for production equipment
