Developing and Implementing Maintenance Tactics PEMA 3001

Maintenance Management Course

Course details

​​This course is the equivalent to PEMAC Maintenance Management Professional Certification Program​ Module 5: Developing and Implementing Maintenance Tactics. This module focuses on maintenance efforts to ensure that physical assets safely, capably, reliably and repeatedly perform to their designed specifications. The focus is on techniques to develop maintenance tactics that will address how the assets are used, how they are likely to fail, the consequence of failure, and identifying maintenance tactics that are both feasible and worth doing. After developing tactics, the module will focus on how tactics need to be implemented and their effectiveness tracked. Topics include: understanding the “Operating Context”; defining asset function and functional failures; Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA); planning maintenance tasks; decision diagram; understanding consequences and the application of the RCM; maintenance task identification; implementing preventive maintenance; and introducing condition-based monitoring (CBM) into the maintenance equation.
