Predictive Maintenance Techniques




Traditionally scheduled preventive maintenance made inroads in the 1950s’s as an effective tool to eliminate equipment breakdown. Being a time based maintenance concept (TBM), scheduled preventive maintenance cannot pinpoint the actual point of deterioration because preventive maintenance either happens earlier or too late in regards to deterioration failures. Modern equipment maintenance classify this as early or late preventive maintenance or commonly known as reactive maintenance.

An effective and very scientific method to exactly pinpoint the deteriorating condition during which a restoration must be done so that a breakdown can be eliminated is very much in need. To achieve this, a proactive maintenance concept that eliminates failure before it breaks down is critically needed.

This programme is designed to give participants an insight of the latest approaches in predictive maintenance.

How Will You Benefit

  • Have a clearer understanding on the real objective of performing equipment maintenance
  • Have better understand what leads to equipment breakdown
  • Identify the five reasons for failure
  • Better equip to predict a failure in the making
  • Know how to identify the potential before real breakdowns occur
  • Be familiar with simple effective and non-sophisticated methods of identifying potentials
  • Learn how to use electric and electronic gadgets to monitor potential breakdowns way before it really occurs
