Certification and Material:
Each delegate will be provided with a manual of course material.  This workshop carries 3 CPD points.

This course creates an understanding of machinery failures and how to prevent them. It has enormous value in improving the quality of mechanical maintenance and the reduction downtime.
This Workshop will Include:
 Examining the key approaches to Preventive and Predictive Maintenance, and the pursuit of excellence in Maintenance operation. Selection of maintenance strategies.
 Identifying the most frequent failure modes in rotating equipment and moving machinery.
 understanding how parts fail
 Prediction and prevention of such failures
 Using a systematic approach to conduct Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA) on failures, to prevent repetition.
 Developing an approach to optimise lubrication of rotating equipment
 Improving your plant’s up-time and developing an understanding of continuous reliability improvement.

Workshop Outcome and Benefits:
 Participants will understand maintenance strategies, how machinery failures occur and what measures can be taken to prevent common failures.
 An improvement in maintenance standards and rotating equipment reliability can be expected as well as the practical ability to carry out root cause analyses.
Workshop Programme:


  • Understanding Maintenance and Achieving Excellence
  •   Maintenance Strategies. Preventive Maintenance
  •  Predictive Maintenance
  •  Condition Monitoring. Vibration, Ultrasonics, Thermography
  •  Proactive Maintenance
  •  Failure Processes and Failure Modes, including Fatigue, Corrosion and human causes mechanisms


·         Typical fastener, bearing, mechanical seal, gear and other component failures

·         Lubrication and oil analysis

·         Failure of Engine Parts and Failure Investigations (optional)

·         Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA). Several techniques are discussed

·         Allocation of Company case studies and preparation work for Day 3


  • Consolidation of previous course work and review of Company case studies
  • Reliability Centred Maintenance
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Performance Measurement and KPI’s
  •  Goal setting and conclusion
