Course Title: Advanced Maintenance Planning Through Systems Thinking
Course Duration: 5 Days
Maintenance is a critical aspect of any industrial operation, and it is essential to ensure that it is carried out efficiently and effectively. In today’s complex industrial systems, traditional approaches to maintenance planning may not be enough. A systems thinking approach to maintenance planning allows for a holistic view of maintenance requirements, including understanding the interrelationships and dependencies between various components and systems.
This course is designed to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of advanced maintenance planning using systems thinking principles. Through a combination of lectures, case studies, and interactive exercises, participants will learn how to apply systems thinking tools and techniques to develop effective maintenance plans that ensure maximum asset performance, reliability, and availability.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the principles of systems thinking and how they apply to maintenance planning
- Develop a holistic understanding of maintenance requirements and dependencies in complex systems
- Apply systems thinking tools and techniques to identify root causes of maintenance problems
- Develop effective maintenance plans that take into account interrelationships and dependencies between various components and systems
- Evaluate the effectiveness of maintenance plans and make improvements where necessary
