The course presents understanding of equipment failure characteristics. To achieve an optimal maintenance program that meets specified safety, environmental, and economic goals. Participants will learn to preserve equipment functions by identifying appropriate predictive maintenance (PdM) tasks, failure finding tasks and other actions that protect against failure or mitigate the consequences of failure.

This course present a systematic approach to fault diagnosis and failure prevention in a broad range of machinery used in many industries. The key routes to preventive maintenance are demonstrated through both overview and the study of examples in different failure analysis and a sequential approach to machinery trouble-shooting and problem solving.

Failure analysis, Troubleshooting and Predictive & Planned Maintenance techniques, including vibration analysis, oil analysis, and others techniques are discussed in the course with a view to optimising the maintenance engineering effort while maximising production.

This course provides the fundamentals of PdM and condition monitoring applicable to plants, facilities and manufacturing lines. Predictive Maintenance & Condition Monitoring will provide Participants with a framework to make the right decisions on what equipment needs condition monitoring, what technologies to use to meet their needs and how to measure the effectiveness of their decisions.


Participants will learn how to collect, analyze and interpret failure statistics and will also gain an understanding of FMECA. Participants will be instructed in condition monitoring methods and will be taught how vibration analysis can be used to detect, locate, severity assess and diagnose a range of common faults in machines.

Upon the successful completion of this course the participant shall be able to:

  • Understand the principles of failure analysis in process plant
  • An understanding of Machine Failure Analysis and Troubleshooting techniques
  • Learn about machinery troubleshooting in pumps, centrifugal compressors, , gas turbines and electric motors
  • Describe the Benefits of a PdM & Condition Monitoring Program
  • Identify What Equipment to Monitor
  • Predict What Maintenance Needs to be done and When
  • An understanding of a range of Planned & Predictive Maintenance Technologies
  • Knowledge of the potential contribution of each these technologies to maintenance efficiency
  • Guidelines indicating how these technologies can interact with and support each other

This seminar is directed towards Supervisors, Team Leaders and Managers in Maintenance, Engineering and Production. The seminar will also benefit anyone who wishes to update themselves on Predictive Maintenance Technologies and Failure Analysis techniques, as well as those who have to judge the suitability of these technologies for their needs, and learn how to implement them for the benefit of their organizations.
