Event description


Reliability Engineering & Maintenance Optimisation

25 - 27 October 2016, Manchester

Course summary 

This three day course covers the fundamentals of leading methodologies that have been proven to enable industrial organisations improve their reliability while reducing costs and improving uptime and output of finished goods and services. The course delivery includes a selection of appropriate case studies and examples that clearly illustrate how this subject matter works successfully in practice.


The main objectives are to enable delegates to identify and understand key activities that they can support and contribute to, that can make a considerable improvement to the overall organisations maintenance and operations productivity and deliverables, and ultimately the organisations profitability.

Day 3: 27 October 2016

Maintenance Optimisation

  • Life cycle costing
  • Evaluating the cost of downtime
  • The principles of cost, risk optimisation
  • Managing obsolescence and prolonging life cycles
  • Life cycle options and choices that can affect profitability
  • Refurbishment
