Elective: Maintenance Engineering for Product Life Cycle Management

Maintenance Engineering is becoming a critical issue today for many organizations that must reduce their operational costs. This three-day course provides a practical and comprehensive overview of the maintenance engineering lifecycle; from product design and development, to field maintenance and the in-service systems engineering management of operational systems.

The course covers maintenance engineering design methods, maintainability predictions, analysis, testing and demonstration, and operational systems engineering principles and applications. Students learn how Maintenance Engineering is integrated with other specialty engineering fields such as reliability, logistics, human factors, and systems engineering.

The course contains several real world case study examples that support the methods and techniques taught through out the course. Current state of the art software application packages are discussed and demonstrated to provide the student with the required theory and practical tools necessary to implement maintenance engineering quickly within their organizations.
