Technical Training

Hofincons Group has partnered with knowledgeable, experienced and industries big names to offer effective technical training courses. One of the companies is Marshall Institute, USA that has worldwide experience in offering technical courses and have effectively delivered for several years.

All of the public maintenance training subjects can be customized and delivered at your facility, as "on-site" training. "Customized" training means that the instructor can tailor the training around your operation. This can be accomplished by adding a "mini-assessment" ahead of the training, which gives the instructor a “snap-shot” of the client’s facility prior to the training. This training format is most effective when held at the client’s facility. All questions, comments, and discussions are concentrated on your specific issues. In many instances, exercises can be completed on your equipment (when applicable).

Some of the technical trainings we currently offer are as follows:

 

Planning and Scheduling
(Approx. 3 to 5 days) Designed for Planner/Schedulers working in their own environment to learn the 8 steps of Planning. This training will use live work requests from your system and takes you through the planning and scheduling process from request to work order closure. This training ensures that Planner/Schedulers understand the work flow process and helps to establish their roles & responsibilities. It will also assist other personnel in understanding their roles related to working with the Planner/Schedulers and make the process more efficient and effective.

 

Storeroom Solutions
(Approx. 3 to 5 days) The onsite training begins with an assessment that covers: An analysis of current state based on a 77-point survey covering staffing, CMMS, materials handling, layout, inventory controls, and procurement practices A full breakdown of inventories including min/max levels, excess, and obsolete materials with recommendations A review of roles and responsibilities and how current processes and metrics support them And a customized master plan for implementation based on gap analysis from assessment and the training to assure sustainability Following the assessment, the data will be analyzed and a customized training program will identify areas for improvement. Attendees will learn both tactical and strategic processes in order to fully optimize the capabilities of the storeroom and close performance gaps that hamper operations.

 

Root Cause Analysis
(Approx. 2 to 3 days) Learn a structured, analytical process of investigation, analysis, and resolution, to permanently eliminate recurring maintenance failures. This course is based on facts and data utilizing the DMAIC process (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control). Typically this program’s has two days of 'class work' with a third day of on-site exercises on equipment and / or systems.

 

Basic Equipment Care Workshop
This hands-on, four-day course explains and demonstrates, through actual on-site practice sessions, the concepts of TPM/TPR; how to function as a team, how to conduct cleaning and inspecting activities, how to measure equipment effectiveness, how to write standards, and much more. The training enables team members to begin the process of identifying and resolving equipment-related issues on their equipment.
