Reliability Engineering Fundamentals for Asset Performance Management

Asset Performance Management (APM) is a process that encompasses tools and procedures to maintain or improve an assets’ reliability, maintainability and/or availability with respect to its requirements, under its use environment, for the duration of its lifetime. APM is intended to be applied to an asset in an operational environment. Whilst many elements are involved in APM, Reliability Engineering is a central element to success.

This 1-day course covers the fundamentals of Reliability Engineering for Asset Performance Management process, with the following aims:

  • Introduce Reliability Engineering principles (objectives, terminology, definitions).
  • Describe the elements of an Asset Performance Management process and how they work together.
  • Provide awareness of typical Reliability Engineering tools that help identify, monitor and manage risks.
  • Demonstrate how reliability, maintainability and availability can be quantified.
