New NIBRT Course ‘Managing Asset Reliability – BioPharma Process’
NIBRT is delighted to launch a new course in collaboration with Pro-Reliability Solutions. This course is designed to interactively teach participants how to develop proactive asset management strategies for bio processing equipment through the application of best practice Reliability Engineering principles.
Participants will explore the application of Root Cause Analysis, Asset Maintenance Strategy Optimisation, Strategy Simulation, and Work Management practices to make optimised maintenance and reliability decisions. With access to the on site suite of biopharma manufacturing process equipment, a practical exercise is also undertaken by the class to incorporate reliability principles and methods.
Course delivery method: 2 days onsite in NIBRT

- Maintenance, Director/Manager/Lead/Engineer
- Reliability, Director/Manager/Lead/Engineer
- Operations, Director/Manager/Lead
- Tech Operations, Director/Manager/Lead
- Engineering Specialist / Senior Specialist
- Manufacturing Biotech Associate (including senior/lead roles)
Topics covered in this course will include:
Introduction to Reliability Engineering:
- What is reliability and what does it meant to your organisation?
- Why do we need Reliability?
- The journey of reliability and what it can deliver
Root Cause Analysis (RCA) – Best Practice Defect Elimination:
- How RCA is a key tool for eliminating defects and an essential component of you asset management strategy
- RCA investigations – from 5 ‘whys’ to Cause and Effect Analysis
- What we need to investigate through trigger points?
- Identifying solutions to prevent and eliminate future reoccurrences
Asset Maintenance Strategy Optimisation:
- Are you performing the right maintenance at the right frequency? How do you know?
- Why Equipment Criticality Analysis is important?
- What is Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM)?
- Applying RCA failure data to asset maintenance strategy optimisation
- Identifying failure modes that impact your plant and how to mitigate/eliminate them
- Improving effectiveness of existing maintenance strategies
- Building and simulating the optimised maintenance strategy
- Forecasting spares, resources, budgets and risks
Work Management – Planning, Performance and Productivity:
- You have developed optimised maintenance strategies but now to execute them efficiently?
- Identifying best practices, methods and systems required to get the most from planning and scheduling to unlock resource capacity
- How accurate maintenance planning maximises tool time, resource and information availability
- How the performance of your work management process is a vital input to maintenance strategy optimisation
- Driving quality with high-quality planning and scheduling performance
Tying it all together: A practical exercise is also undertaken by the class to incorporate reliability principles and methods
Upon completion, participants will:
- Understand how to develop proactive asset management strategies for bio processing equipment through the application of best practice Reliability Engineering principles
- Know how to apply Root Cause Analysis techniques to support asset strategy optimisation
- Be able to develop optimised maintenance strategies, plans and tasks and know the benefit to the business
- Be able to forecast spares, resources, budgets and risks
- Demonstrate the ability to run maintenance strategy optimisation simulations
- Understand how to improve the efficiency of maintenance execution through the application of work management business processes
- Know what needs to be done to keep a maintenance plan focused on minimising the chance of future failures and losses
