The proper physical asset management certainly depends on the ubiquitous active or even proactive participation of all organization’s/company’s managers and employees. This sort of participation in turn is very dependent on targeted training, and customized knowledge and skill development for the staff in this field. So, PCN Co. services in this section play complementary and supportive role for other services and products delivered by PCN Group members.

The PCN Co. training and promotional programs are essentially practical and mostly workshop-based. The structure of all trainings, seminars, and workshops is framed based on a problem-centric and result-oriented approach. Following four general categories summarize these services:

(A) Basic training courses aim at creating grounds for advanced trainings and workshops.

(B) Workshops conduct interactively for different purposes in different types.

(C) Specialized/advanced trainings designed for knowledge and skill level improvement of participants in executive and operational activities related to the physical asset management.

(D) Seminars designed and implemented based on successful/unsuccessful case studies, and experiences analysis approach and their “lessons learnt”.


Educational and Skill Development Services Classification


Basic training courses

3) Production and operations management (basic and advanced)

4) Supply chain management

5) Risk management (general knowledge and fundamentals)

6) Risk assessment (models and tools)

7) Reliability engineering

8) Quality engineering tools

9) Preventive maintenance

10) Corrosion management

11) Warehousing management

12) Inventory management and control



Assessing the status quo and analyzing the root causes of clients’ issues and problems form the bases for developing the content of PCN Co. workshops.  Received feedback from clients’ side is used to improve their effectiveness. The main objective of these workshops is to improve knowledge level and practical skills of the participants in management and optimal utilization of physical assets through whole life cycle.

The workshops are categorized by following six categories:

  1. General workshops designed and developed based on common issues and needs of target industries and organizations (in physical asset management: organizational structure design, self-assessment, overall maturity level evaluation, asset management plan development, and asset management 4.0 workshops. For industry problem-centric workshops: corrosion control, pipelines and tank shells restorative coatings, etc.)
  2. Specific workshops designed and developed based on clients’ specific issues and needs (workshop on projects and plans prioritization, protecting outdoor parts and equipment subject to harsh and extreme environment for a specific customer).
  3. Customized workshops based on direct request (introduction to modern inventory control and warehousing management technology workshop, workshop in risk management standard application to optimal physical asset utilization).
  4. Complementary workshops to support sold products and services conducted free of charge (workshop on how to use protective covers for flanges and clamps in aggressive environments).
  5. Promotional workshops to introduce PCN Group products and services either by your order or our offer (spare parts reverse engineering workshop, ISO-55000 standard implementation workshop on repair and maintenance of rotary equipment).
  6. Practical workshops to introduce how to use tools and models in quality engineering, reliability engineering, risk assessment & management, integration management, and so on.
