Operator Maintenance

To prevent errors and disruptions, and address them in the early stages

The TPM concept is based on that the operators through their knowledge and proximity to the machines know what to do to prevent errors and disruptions or detect them at an early stage. This reduces the loss in quality and the delivery reliability is improved.

Operational reliability and a good maintenance work has important implications to an organization's performance. This course describes how to develop operator maintenance and improve reliability.

Objectives: You will learn to understand the importance of continuous monitoring of operational disruptions and making adapted measures, in order to develop the company's productive processes and increase the overall efficiency. The concept provides the operators a greater participation in the company's operation and its improvement work.

Participants: The course is aimed at anyone working operationally with any function within the areas of production technology, production development, maintenance engineering, and development work on streamlining the company's manufacturing processes.

Qualifications: There are no formal knowledge requirements, but you are welcome to have some work experience from maintenance, production and production technology or process development.

Training Method: Operator Maintenance is a Premium course and is studied over the internet via our e-learning platform Instant education. Read more about the training method E-learning - Premium courses.
