ENEM13012 - Maintenance Engineering
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEM13012 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

This unit outlines the importance of effective maintenance management in industry, the costs of maintenance and the benefits of effective maintenance planning and strategies. Emphasis is placed on practical aspects of managing maintenance for plant and equipment. You are introduced to techniques and methods for monitoring the condition of plant and equipment, and to processes used to implement and manage condition monitoring. You will investigate maintenance problems and prepare plans to solve such problems. The unit outlines methods for assessing maintenance effectiveness and improving maintenance systems, and provides a vehicle for developing skills for working and learning autonomously to solve problems, to document approaches used to solve problems and to communicate professionally.

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 15%
2. Written Assessment 25%
3. Presentation and Written Assessment 60%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Explain the impact of maintenance on the business of industrial organisations and the need for maintenance management.
  2. Describe processes for establishing maintenance needs of engineering operations, and developing maintenance plans and strategies, and explain costs and benefits of maintenance management.
  3. Describe techniques and methods for monitoring the condition of plant and equipment.
  4. Describe processes used to implement and manage condition monitoring programs for specific applications of plant and equipment.
  5. Investigate and analyse maintenance problems and develop plans to solve these problems.
  6. Describe methods for assessing maintenance effectiveness and methods for improving maintenance systems and control of maintenance.
  7. Work and learn autonomously to solve problems and record and communicate clearly and professionally the approaches used to solve problems and the rationale for adopting such approaches to problems.
