9. Learning Outcomes

Subject Mastery           Understanding, Knowledge and Subject-Specific Skills

                          Introduction to the basics and definition of Asset Maintenance Management; Various types of maintenance, including preventative,
                          corrective, reactive, emergency; objectives of planned maintenance., including stock condition, standards, budget plans, workloads.
                          Introduction to the maintenance policy, its main components, primary procedures and assembly, objectives, standards and requirements..
                          Understanding of the key factors influencing the maintenance policy, including technical, corporate, financial, economic and environmental
                          considerations. Appreciation of the basics of maintenance project objectives, cost and time limits. Understanding of structures for
                          maintenance procedures. Understanding of how to produce a strategic planned maintenance programme, preparation of an asset register.
                          An introduction to monitoring and control of the maintenance programme. Module develops the concept of Asset Maintenance Management
                          as a life cycle cost. It goes through the various primary objectives of life cycle costing (LCC) and life cycle phases. It considers the
                          applicability of LCC to AMM and the implementation of the maintenance programme in cost terms. Students will understand the definition,
                          objectives and benefits of LCC, the factors affecting the investment life of a project, the costs and values included in an LCC exercise, the
                          processes and data sources for LCC.

Personal Abilities        Cognitive skills, Core skills and Professional Awareness

                          By working through the module pack students are required to reflect on their reading and consider the in-text questions. They are also required to
