M560 - Reliability-Based Program Planning and Implementation in Asset Management
Learn Asset Performance Management ( APM )
M560 provides a Reliability-based Asset Management planning framework focusing on the reliability methods and tools that support the needs of maintenance planning and Asset Performance Management (APM). It teaches how to apply proven reliability methods to each step in the Equipment Life Cycle process (Acquire/Create, Utilize/Maintain, Renew/Dispose) through hands-on examples.
M560 presents concepts and software that you could use to help your organization:
- Gain an understanding of the methods, terms and metrics used in reliability, when to apply particular tools during different stages of asset management and the associated benefits and drawbacks of each.
- Implement a holistic reliability-based process in asset performance management environments and leverage the benefits of this process.
- Build an effective reliability culture within the organization and help to determine what needs to be added or improved in your APM initiatives.
- Evaluate your strengths in each methodology, which will serve as a guide for any additional skills you may need to acquire or augment.
