Facility and Building Preventive and Predictive Maintenance Management Workshop

Date: 16 October 2016 - 20 October 2016
Course ID: 765/2016
Duration: 5 Days
Fee US $: 2950 US$
Venue: Dubai / UAE
Category: Maintenance and Operation, Asset and Facility Management

Introduction:

Structures, like people never get younger. Structures, like people can maintain their good health with age, if properly cared for, examined, and treated when needed. One may view this course, in this context, as a structural Physician's reference.



It may be said that a structure that has withstood the combined effects of use, abuse, loads, and environmental conditions over time has, in fact, proven itself. However, buildings and other structures do deteriorate with time because of repeated loadings, exposure to the elements, aging of materials, wear and tear from normal use, abuse, inadequate maintenance, and other factors.



Engineers and managers working in the field of design, construction and maintenance of structures often feel the lack of a comprehensive practical guide on the practice, needs and effective programs of good maintenance. Few practical references are available that bridge the gap between theoretical, technical, practical and managerial matters in this regard.



This course is planned to answer technical questions frequently asked by the experienced engineer and executive. It includes information about the significance of applicable codes and standards, critical characteristics of a given structure, critical loads, types and causes of common deficiencies of structures, workable preventive measures for the decay and deterioration of structures, maintenance work types, root cause analysis, comprehensive check list library and the use of innovative technology and new materials.

Objectives:

• To understand the philosophy and significance of codes and standards

• To learn about the uncertainty associated with loads and load effects

• To understand the causes and mechanisms leading to deficient structures

• To workout preventive measures to counteract deterioration of structures

• To plan effective maintenance programs

• To understand the nature of innovative technology and new materials

• To learn about specific needs and requirements for concrete, steel and other structures

• To comprehend the role of the designer, the contractor and the supervision in producing sound structures

• To provide an overview for the role of effective management

• To provide a comprehensive check list library for maintenance jobs

• To learn from past lessons

• To learn from historical structures that stood the test of time

Who should attend:

This course is designed to meet the needs primarily of engineers and managers, facing the challenges of maintaining and preserving good, sound structures. It is generally useful for engineers of different disciplines, quality assurance experts, construction and supervision engineers, owners and managers of constructed facilities.



It is expected that a number of the attendees will find the information beneficial and a useful addition to their reference library even though they are not directly practicing in the field.

Engineers involved in design, supervision, construction, maintenance or planning will find many direct links with their practice and requirements and can put the information provided to use immediately.
