An Introduction to Maintenance Engineering and Asset Management

  1. 1. An Introduction to Maintenance Engineering and Asset Management A five-day intensive course for Engineers An Introduction to Maintenance Engineering and Asset Management This five day course on Maintenance Engineering and Asset Management is generic in nature and is applicable to all kinds of industries. The course covers the basics of the following; Maintenance strategy and systems, Maintenance organisation, Turnaround Management, Audit maintenance, Reliability and Vibration Based Condition Monitoring of plant. All these are supported by case studies and will be covered from a management perspective throughout the course. The University of Manchester Date: 7 - 11 June 2010
  2. 2. Page 2 An introduction to Maintenance Engineering and Asset Management Background to the course Maintenance Engineering and Asset Management is a critical field of managerial and technical im- portance to UK and international industry. It is estimated that 10% of typical plant cost is spent every year maintaining that plant. Maintenance can make the difference in competitiveness on a global scale. Maintenance managers can make major impacts on their companies’ bottom line, and often report at board level. This week long intensive course will cover a basic introduction to Maintenance and Asset Man- agement organised by the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering at The Univer- sity of Manchester Who is the course for? The course content is generic in nature and so is applicable to all kind of Industries, e.g., Oil and Gas, Nuclear, Railways, Chemical, Food processing, Energy and Power generation and manufac- turing industries. This course will appeal to practising engineers, new graduate engineers and ex- perienced managers, who are responsible for the maintenance of plant and equipment in their organisation and need updating in the latest developments in this area. The Course The School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering based in the University of Manchester is one of the UK’s leading institutions in the engineering field. The School has extensive teaching and research facilities and contracts with major industries operating throughout the world. The School is establishing a reputation as a provider of short updating courses for engineers that will support staff through their working lives with the latest research and business practice. All the speakers are consultants and managers from major UK organizations and leaders in their field. The Venue The course takes place in central Manchester and delegates will be based on-campus for the five days in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering on our Sackville Street campus.

  5. 5. Page 5 Course Presenters Dr Jyoti Sinha (Course Leader) BSc (Chemistry Hons.), BSc (Mech.), Mtech(Aero), PhD (Rotor dynamics) Lecturer and Course Director, M.Sc. Maintenance Engineering and Assets Management (MEAM) course The University of Manchester Dr. Jyoti K. Sinha took up the present post in January 2007. He previously worked as a Senior Research Scientist in the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, India for nearly 16 years. He also worked as a Research Fellow in Cranfield University, UK for 18 months. He received his Bachelor’s degree (Mech. Eng.) from BIT, Sindri (India), Master’s degree (Aerospace Eng.) from IIT Bombay, Mumbai (India). He completed his Ph.D. from the University of Wales Swansea (UK). His research area is Vibration and Structural Dynamics using both experiments and analytical methods in- cluding FE model updating, Vibration control, and Health Monitoring techniques. He is recipient of the pres- tigious “Young Scientist (Boyscast) Fellowship” from the Department of Science and Technology, India for his outstanding work in Vibration diagnosis and Structural Dynamics related to number of rotating ma- chines and structural components of Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs). Dr. Sinha has been extensively involved in the number of projects related to Vibration and Dynamics and instrumental in developing number of innovative techniques in his research area. He is the author of more than 60 technical reports and 85 tech- nical papers in the International Journals and Conferences (Journal-54nos, Conference-29 nos., Invited talk- 2nos.). Tom Lenahan (TLL Limited) Since 1996 Tom Lenahan has worked as an independent consultant assisting clients achieve cost effective solutions to difficult issues in maintenance strategy in general and turnaround management in particular. Tom has been involved in all aspects of maintenance and built up extensive experience working for compa- nies in the UK, USA, India, Malaysia, Russia, South Africa and the Middle East. He has been trained in ad- vanced communication skills and has extensive experience in dealing with 'soft' people issues that are as vital to the success of maintenance strategies as the more traditional technical issues. This has made him expert in the role of facilitation. Tom's first book on turnaround management was published in August 1999 and he is at present engaged on developing a 'stripped down' turnaround methodology for companies with limited resources. John Harris (Visiting Lecturer, The University of Manchester) Following experience in research engineering in the early UK nuclear power programme, lectured in the School of Engineering at Manchester University where, after work in nuclear reactor physics and heat trans- fer he developed research interests in safety and reliability engineering and in maintenance. He co-authored, with Tony Kelly, the pioneering textbook Management of Industrial Maintenance, and edits the journal Maintenance & Asset Management. His research publications have dealt with topics as diverse as reactor neutronics and heat transfer, nuclear plant containment, the maintenance of hazardous plant and the moni- toring of reliability. A founder member and sometime Chairman of the erstwhile Reliability Committee of the UK Institution of Mechanical Engineers, he contributed substantially to its handbook (published in the Institution's Series of Guides for the Process Industries). Paul Wheelhouse (ESS Ltd) Paul Wheelhouse is a chartered electrical engineer a member of the Institution of Engineering Technology and a council member of the Institute of Asset Management. After studying physics at UMIST (now The University of Manchester) he worked in the speciality chemicals business for 20 years in a variety of engi- neering, production and distribution roles at several locations in Europe. A large part of his time was de- voted to improving the performance of plant, work processes and the functioning of groups. For the past fifteen years Paul has been engaged in asset management consulting. This has involved helping clients to enhance return on assets by improved equipment reliability, reduced working capital and the more effective use of labour. His recent assignments have crossed a wide range of industries in Europe, Middle East, North America and the Far East. Paul is currently Principal Consultant with ESS Ltd. which specialises in all aspects of maintenance consultancy, training and performance improvement. He divides his time between business development, teaching and consulting. To register, phone Amanda Clare on 0161 275 4323
