Flygt Launches E-Learning Course For LCC
ITT Flygt has launched a Life Cycle Cost (LCC) e-learning course from its website www.flygt.co.uk, aimed at providing easily accessible information to customers about how they can reduce ownership, maintenance and energy costs by using the LCC solution.
This innovative and unique customer LCC course by Flygt was designed specifically as a web - based training product to suit the needs of busy water sector and industry engineers who specify pumps, mixers and aeration systems. Bob Went, Flygts Group Consultant explains: “The course is accessible via the Internet and designed in modules so individuals can access it as and when they want to from the comfort of their office or home, in recognition of people’s hectic schedules and the associated difficulties in attending location-based seminars.
“LCC is becoming more widely adopted in various industry sectors, and has recently been purposely defined for the area of pumping and mixing systems. The course is about enabling specifiers to think about the planning of pumping installations in their entirety and not just focus on capital cost and possible short term savings. Essentially it provides a better understanding of how LCC is applied in reality and the fundamental issues involved with its adoption.”
The course takes users right through the subject of LCC in bite size modules, so that customers can go at their own pace and work through it, or use it as a resource as and when needed. It is part of Flygt’s drive to continually offer a value-added service to its customers.
Bob Went continues, “The LCC approach considers all the costs of ownership over an assets life to ensure this overall cost is kept to a minimum. The challenge for all organisations in adopting the LCC approach to procurement is recognising that incurring the marginal extra capital cost for an LCC item of plant, compared with the cheapest available, significantly reduces the overall LCC costs for the business. This is especially true when there is pressure on capital budgets and when those responsible for implementing projects are targeted to achieve Capex savings on the programme budget.”
