Discuss maintainability to identify techniques on reducing downtime and repairs to increase availability and lower maintenance costs.

Maintainability is the ease of repairing equipment, measured in terms of repair time, downtime and man hours. Longer repair times mean greater downtime, lower availability and higher costs. With a number of metrics to measure downtime, such as MTTR, MMAX, Mean Downtime, there are often more attention being paid to reliability and very little towards maintainability.

In fact, a lot of cost and time can be saved if practical maintainability is set up at the design phase.

Because there are very few practical materials on the subject of maintainability, Petro1 proudly presents an upcoming workshop, Maintainability: Reducing Downtimes & Repair Times, which will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

This is a unique 2-day course not offered elsewhere which will discuss both reliability engineering, and team-based solutions that are effective in improving maintainability. The course is also designed with practical application in mind, whereby participants will be involved in hands-on exercises.  

  • Have a better understanding of factors affecting maintainability
  • Understanding of how to measure maintainability
  • Have greater awareness of techniques to improve maintainability
  • Understand what needs to be done in the design phase
  • Explore, apply and benchmark international case-studies, examples, and strategies that can be implemented immediately in your workplace
  • Ability to determine a number of metrics for a repair data set using plotting paper and software
  • Estimate the time for a complete job and then estimate the time by estimating the job in detail
  • Critical path example
  • Simple RAM study
  • Calculate total annual downtime and MTTR using FMEA
  • Determine a new target downtime when plant manager wants another 1% uptime
