Course Material

Course Overview

PM Optimization (PMO) is a process which uses the principles of Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) to rationalize existing maintenance programs, failure history, and other technical documentation. The ultimate intended goal of PMO is to eliminate defects, improve uptime, and positively impact OEE. The PMO Workshop is 4.5 days of hands-on, highly interactive sessions that explore how PMO fits into strategy management and asset performance management sustainability. The program includes Strategy Optimizer (formerly PMO2000®) Software training.

Join us as we take you through an 8 step process to consider when implementing a PMO program. Attendees will discuss a simplified PMO theory in an interactive session which engages people in the streamlined concepts and how to apply those learnings inside the Strategy Optimizer Software.

We will take a closer look at hidden and evident failures, expected and unacceptable (unexpected) failure modes, and the best methods to influence management. We will also introduce the concept of a ‘fault initiator’ and what can be done to control a reliable outcome.

  • Understand data requirements in decision making during PMO
  • Learn how to build a case for change
  • Engage in team thinking for better decision making
  • Understand the concept of no maintenance required
  • Learn the ingredients of a living reliability program

Learning Objectives

This course will be held in a highly interactive workshop format with case studies and real-world examples. The material has been designed using Adult Learning Methodology that believes the ideal ratio for optimum learning and retention is 60% / 40%:

60% - blended combination of discussion, practical exercises, simulations, & case studies

40% - material/slides

Participants will engage in interactive exercises and discussions throughout the course to ensure the material is not only taught, but can also be applied. Limited class size (15 participants) is strictly enforced to enhance individual learning experiences and interaction with the instructor and other participants.

Course Format
