Predictive Maintenance and Condition Monitoring
Inefficiencies and wastages abound in both manufacturing and service systems as a result of poor machine maintenance procedures. Moreover, technical and technological inability to monitor equipment conditions and failure to prescribe the corresponding maintenance procedures aggravate the problem.
The training course is designed to answer the needs of maintenance systems. Participants, after this training, are expected to acquire a comprehensive and integrated methodology in machine troubleshooting.
At the end of the course, the participants are expected:
1. To have an introduction on the concepts of predictive maintenance and condition monitoring.
2. To be familiar with the various condition monitoring techniques which enhance the efficiency, reliability and safety of equipment
