About the course:

E4A has a wide-ranging content of engineering materials information and provides a course covering selection of materials in a series of services such as engineering parts and equipment designs. The course covers selected applications in various processes, important materials properties and key details of manufacturing and assembly that should be carefully considered for successful long-term performance life in service. This course is thus to be considered as a broad-based overview of selection and design of materials for practical and reliable in-plant services. 

It is not possible to address every point of material selection and design in service, but E4A focuses on key approaches to the designs, points of critical importance and prior recorded failures, and thus serves to make the attendees aware of the wider but important considerations of each material and standard. The use of industry standards and ratings of institutes (such as API for rating of pipes) - both metal and plastic and the service conditions to which the nominal coding applies - are a special and interesting sub-section addressed.

Each year there are new materials developments added and in the 2021 edition we have also added content on the new E4A approach termed GREY INNOVATION. This leads on to savings and profit leverage that can be achieved through deeper understanding of design benefits from application of Grey Innovation design concepts. We take you through the simplified but very effective workplace economics models that E4A has developed.

Economic benefits are achieved by optimization of the total design of each material system.
We strive through our course examples and case studies to drive the economic payback.

VENUE: All of SADC, as the Course is digital and on-line. Live-course and run at office or at home workshops provides the ideal mix of course contents.
