Course Description

The cornerstone of plant integrity is ensuring that assets are correctly designed, operated and
maintained within the requirements. The profitability of plants is significantly influenced by the costeffectiveness
of the preventive maintenance strategy in place. Assets are subject to deterioration
mechanisms and potential damage throughout their service life. To ensure that the required reliability,
availability and safety is being delivered within acceptable cost, we need to understand the
deterioration mechanisms the assets will be exposed to and their effects (risk), to be able to find the
most effective maintenance task for this asset in the current circumstances. This entails identifying the
deterioration mechanisms, determining their failure rates, risk criteria and the extent, frequency, and
methodologies for maintaining the assets.
Traditionally, maintenance strategies are based on experience and in some cases developed in response
to significant failures. In general, they do not take full account of failure risks nor of the degradation
mechanisms that the asset is exposed to in operation. As a result, organizations will not do the right
maintenance actions or in the right frequency to avoid failures, while others would unnecessarily
overspend, resulting in significant waste of resources and sometimes maintenance induced failures as
an unwanted result. You will learn how to apply this systematic and integrated use of expertise from the
different disciplines that impact plant integrity. We will discuss several examples of industry wide RBM
projects, their successes and failures and how to learn from it.


At the end of this course, delegates will have:
• An understanding of the concept and practical application of a Risk Based Maintenance program
• Knowledge of the potential contribution of RBM to maintenance effectiveness and performance
• Guidelines indicating how RBM interacts with workflow management and other methodologies
• Hints and tips for practical application of RBM so as to achieve the best results
• A practical approach to develop an action plan to utilize RBM in their own areas of responsibility,
fitting RBM into the Asset Management and measuring results

Course Outline:

Who should attend:

This Risk Based Maintenance Workshop is directed towards Maintenance & Reliability Engineers,
Maintenance and Engineering Professionals and Maintenance and Production Heads, who wish to
update themselves on Risk Based Maintenance, maintenance reference plans, judge its suitability for
their needs, and learn how to implement it for the benefit of their organizations.
