Asset Maintenance Management Training Program (5 Days)

Course Overview

This 5 day introductory level training course focusses on the fundamental asset management, maintenance and reliability principles.

Day 1 delivers a thorough overview of asset management, providing participants with the information to understand the fundamentals of asset management and how they can provide benefits to an organisation.

Day 2 and 3 aims to provide participants with a sound understanding of fundamental reliability engineering concepts such as Reliability Centered Maintenance, Failure Modes Effect Cause and Analysis (FMECA), Condition Monitoring and Risk-Based Inspection, including data analysis and reliability predictions. This section of the program will also cover relevant maintenance concepts such as Preventive, Predictive, Reactive and Proactive Maintenance.

Day 4 and 5 will focus on Computer Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS), working with maintenance master data to provide participants with a basic understanding of data management and verification, asset registers, hierarchies and functional locations. Training content will also cover the Maintenance Build Project Workflow, including Spares and Material Management, Planning and Scheduling.

Learning Objectives

As a result of completing the Asset Maintenance Management Training Program, participants will have the ability to;

  • Define Asset Management and describe relevant systems, principles and concepts
  • Analyse and evaluate risk and understand the key principles of industry standards (ISO) and AMBoK
  • Understand Asset Management technical processes and their application within industry
  • Apply learnings to develop Asset Management objectives to meet stakeholder requirements and optimise overall organisational performance
  • Identify available Asset Management tools and techniques
  • Understand the basics of Reliability, Availability and Maintainability
  • Understand Preventive, Reliability, Risk-Based Maintenance techniques/ strategies
  • Understand the purpose  and application of the Reliability Centred Maintenance process
  • Understand the different failure patterns and associated failure rates
  • Understand the purpose and application of FME(C)A
  • Understand what generic maintenance strategies are and how they are applied
  • Identify the most suitable maintenance strategy/strategies based on the asset’s failure characteristics and organisational requirements
  • Understand what a CMMS is and how it adds value to your business
  • Identify the various CMMS and determine which one would best suit your business
  • Understand the do’s and don’ts of selection and implementation of a CMMS
  • Understand what a “maintenance build” is and where a CMMS fits in to this process

Who Should Attend?

  • Asset Management professionals
  • Maintenance Managers
  • Operations Managers
  • Supply chain managers
  • Operations Engineers
  • Maintenance  & Reliability Engineers
  • Process Engineers


Participants will complete a small assessment component at the conclusion of each day. These will then be discussed at the beginning of the next day’s workshop, with solutions and answers provided. This will provide participants with an opportunity to reinforce the knowledge gained from the previous day, allowing them to progress logically through the course content.

About the Facilitators

Mark Mackenzie

Mark has over 24 years experience where he has focused on maintenance engineering and logistics support. He has a degree in Mechanical Engineering and has a Masters Degree in Reliability and Quality Engineering. With a strong background in Defence, Mark has worked as the Army's senior reliability engineer where he managed the Army's Centre of Expertise on all reliability matters. His previous experience also includes conducting RAM and logistics analysis for the Collins Class submarine Combat System and the provision of reliability related advice to all major Army projects. He was the Army’s representative on the Defence Reliability Steering Committee and was a senior instructor on Defence Reliability management courses. Mark has received a US Meritorious Service Medal for his work in test and evaluation and a Land Commanders Commendation for his work while in the Army.

Due to Mark’s reliability experience and work as a Panel member with WAAMI in 2004, he was invited to lecture on reliability testing and reliability modelling at the University of WA. In addition to this, Mark also teaches at Curtin University where he runs a Masters level unit called Safety Integrity Reliability Management. He also currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Maintenance Engineering Society of Australia.

Alastair Krebs

Alastair has over 30 years’ experience in Asset Integrity and Reliability management, gained within the power generation and onshore/offshore hydrocarbon supply and processing industries. He has worked at a senior level both onshore and offshore for major contractors and clients, and has acquired extensive experience in the development and implementation Maintenance and Integrity Management Systems. Alastair was a guest lecturer in Operational Asset Maintenance and Integrity Management Systems, and HSE Management Systems at Curtin University in Perth as part of their Masters’ Degree in Petroleum Engineering. He also, with Mark, delivers the Safety Reliability Integrity Management unit at Curtin University.

Alastair has presented numerous papers on Reliability Centred Maintenance, Reliability and Bench Marking, and The Adaptive Process for Maintenance and Integrity at Keynote Technical seminars throughout the world. Alastair also has extensive experience in the specification and implementation of computerised maintenance management systems such as Maximo, SAP and IFS.
