T011 2-Day Master Class on Best Practices in Equipment Maintenance


Workshop - 2 Days

28 & 29 September 2017 YANGON

Thu & Fri

Trainer: KH Liew

Establishing best practices in equipment maintenance is an achievable goal. But it’s a goal that many talk about but few achieve. So why is it so difficult? And, why are so many factories still running at over 90 percent reactive?

Many blame it on the age of their equipment and the repairs they require. More blame goes to not stocking the critical (and expensive) spares needed to sustain production. And still more can be blamed on today’s fast-paced manufacturing that doesn’t allow for proper planning or time management.

Rather than play the “blame” game, what steps can be taken to proactively reach world-class maintenance in this reactive environment?

This 2-Day Master Class will introduce you to the best practices in Equipment Maintenance that are carried out in the Aerospace and Hitech Industries.
