Organizations increasingly need to make improvements as a key part of their culture in order to remain cost-competitive. The same is true of Maintenance Organisations. Maintenance Departments are increasingly under pressure to improve performance and reduce costs. This program looks at Maintenance Auditing and Benchmarking as two key tools that can be used as the basis for driving the improvement process in maintenance, by identifying best practices, gaps with current practices, and assist with the formulation of strategies to bridge such gaps.In addition, we address how Auditing and Benchmarking can become an integral part of a maintenance management strategy by integrating such activities into maintenance performance measures, key performance indicators and objective setting.
The objectives of this program are to provide participants with an awareness and working knowledge of how to:
Maintenance Auditing and Benchmarking is a hands-on, stimulating learning experience. The program will be highly interactive, with opportunities to advance your opinions and ideas. Participation is encouraged in a supportive environment. To ensure the concepts introduced during the program are understood, they will be reinforced through a mix of learning methods, including lecture-style presentations, open discussion, case studies, simulations, and group work.
This program covers all the essential skills necessary to understand how an effective and efficient maintenance function is implemented, supported, and improved. This includes the use and application of a standardized maintenance management audit methodology consistent with the recognized maintenance excellence framework to assess the current state of maintenance and identify opportunities for improvement. Similarly, participants will learn how to plan, conduct, and interpret the results of a benchmarking study which has been adapted to the need for maintenance.
