Introduction to Fatigue
INTRODUCTION

Numerous structures and machine components are subjected to time-varying load. For example, a particular fibre on the surface of a rotating shaft subjected to bending load undergoes both tension and compression for each revolution of the shaft. Structural members are often found to have failed under the action of fluctuating stresses, although analysis reveals that the actual maximum stresses were below the ultimate strength of the material and frequently even below the yield strength. These failures, which are characterized by a very large number of repeated stresses, are called fatigue failure. This course describes how parts fail under time varying or fatigue load and how to design them to safely resist such conditions.

Total Productive Maintenance
INTRODUCTION

Workers and managements in many companies complain that they are too busy to perform routine maintenance activity on the equipment. The equipment is run continuously until it breaks down. The common reason given is that the equipment is unreliable. Breakdowns create havoc in low-inventory factories. They also lower the quality of products, bring about increases in inventory, ruin morale, cost money, delay schedules and waste resources. Preserving and maintaining the reliability of equipment is an essential task in a successful factory.

An effective program usually includes an in-depth study of preventive maintenance techniques, followed by a thorough program of maintenance control in which vital equipment is kept in good condition before it breaks down.

The workers who operate the equipment are usually the most suitable persons to monitor the day-to-day condition of the equipment. TPM promotes group activities throughout the organization for greater equipment effectiveness, and trains operators to share the responsibility for routine inspection, cleaning, maintenance and minor repairs with maintenance personnel. Over time this cooperative effort dramatically increases productivity and quality, optimizes equipment life cycle cost and broadens the base knowledge and skills of every employee. In many plants, operators do not know how to maintain or repair their own equipment. And for those who are able to repair the machine are not permitted to do so because it is someone else job. Many companies isolate workers and limit their development by creating exclusive job classifications.

This course will provide an insight of TPM and how to integrate daily operations together with maintenance. This way the company does not just benefit from minimum breakdown but also from higher productivity.

COURSE OBJECTIVE

On completion of the course, participants shall be able to:

  • Define and identify the features of TPM.
  • Define and identify the steps to successfully implement Autonomous Maintenance.
  • Conduct Preventive Maintenance, Maintenance Prevention and Equipment Management.
  • Identify the steps to implement TPM company-wide.
  • Identify losses and failures associated with equipment’s and the manufacturing process.
  • Identify steps to eliminate losses and failures identified in 4.

TARGET PARTICIPANTS

  • Maintenance Personnel
  • Production personnel
  • Engineering personnel

Supervisory Management
Introduction

Effective supervisory management is essential in ensuring that the goals of the organization can be achieved. Executives need to supervise subordinates on a daily basis in order to get the work done according to standards and procedures. Managing human resource and supervising them are delicate and complex issues. Supervision is an important link in the management chain of any business enterprise.

With the new breed of better qualified and more demanding employees, executives and supervisors are facing more challenges and this requires them to possess extra skills than before. Technical, inter-personnel as well as administrative skills need to be balanced. Issues such as quality, productivity, delivery date and cost reduction must be dealt with by working together with employees. Leadership and communication are vital in dealing with uncertainties of the manufacturing environment.

In Malaysia, manufacturing contributes greatly to the economy, while services provide many jobs. If we are to prosper economically, executives and supervisors must be knowledgeable in the ways in which they can efficiently improve the internal and external service aspects of their business and the quality of their products.

Diesel Engine Technology
Introduction

Because diesel engines are the most efficient internal combustion engine in the world, they provide power for an incredibly wide range of applications. A vehicle powered by a diesel engine can do more useful work per unit of energy consumed than vehicles powered by gasoline or alternative fuels such as natural gas. Diesel technology at work can be seen every day across many sectors of the world landscape. Goods produced by any nation would not move without diesel engines. Today nearly all freight trucks, locomotives and commercial marine vessels are powered by diesel engines.

New advanced diesel technologies have made these engines cleaner, quieter and more powerful than ever before. Some of these revolutionary innovations include glow plug, electronic control, common rail fuel injection, turbo charging and ultralow sulphur fuel. In other words, the advancements in diesel engine technology will make the engine even more attractive, reliable, economical and environment-friendly.
