Course Highlights
This online engineering PDH course addresses two fundamental guides to strategic maintenance management:
  • An understanding of the need for, and a blueprint to create, a strategic maintenance management plan for your employer
  • A guide to developing the internal talent necessary to provide the machinery and equipment maintenance necessary for the continued life of the business

 

If a business exists to produce or deliver some kind of product or service, it is essential that they maximize the production of those goods or services while delivering the highest quality possible at a competitive price. Obviously, this requires equipment and machinery operating at the highest capacity for as long as possible by teams of skilled operators with as little impact on production as possible.

 

So how can companies maximize their productivity while minimizing the impact of machine and equipment maintenance on that productivity? Is there a way to maintain the equipment with a reliable, steady source of parts and skilled “maintainers”? The best way to do that is by viewing the maintenance function as a full partner in the business and giving them a seat at the executive planning table.

 

This 6 PDH online course is intended for field engineers, facility managers, maintenance supervisors and others seeking a better understanding of the steps involved in the development and implementation of strategic maintenance management plans.
