The reliability journey to predictive and prescriptive

Technology is important, but having a team culture of reliability-minded members is critical. Without team buy-in, the high-tech gadgets may collect dust on a shelf. Attend these sessions to learn how to move from reactive to proactive strategies and how to make sure your team becomes enthusiastic about the process.

Improving and enhancing your maintenance strategy

Culture change and adoption are critical, but after your team is on board, you need a plan to use the tools and technology to be successful. You want to gain some quick wins to share with your team and all other stakeholders. This track helps you learn about the different asset health technology types available and how they can be used to improve your daily workflows.

Getting started with IIoT and data integration

If you are just learning about the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and the technology and benefits involved, this track is for you. Gain information on cloud storage and data streaming and how to integrate data from multiple sources to streamline your maintenance and reliability processes.

8:15am – 9:00am“The 5 traits of a reliability super hero… and 5 skills they can retire” by Shon Isenhour, Founding Partner at Eruditio
In this session, Shon will discuss what tools and skills every good reliability superhero will need to be successful in their facility. He’ll be taking a deeper look into predictive maintenance and maintenance management systems and how they can enable you, the superhero, to fight off downtime and unreliable assets. Join us for a fun and informative look at the personal superpowers you will want to develop and refine for 2019.

9:45am – 10:30am“The $37 billion problem — workplace errors” by Jake Mazulewicz, Ph.D.
Preventable errors in the workplace can end lives, ruin careers, and capsize company reputations overnight. Some teams manage workplace errors far more effectively than others. What works? What doesn’t? Join us to learn the fundamentals of three core error management strategies used by pilots, surgeons, wildland firefighters, elite military units, and other high-reliability teams. You’ll walk away with practical techniques that you can apply immediately, as well as eye-opening insights that can help you improve reliability and safety in your workplace for years to come.

3:00pm – 3:45pm“Survival skills for R&M superheroes of the next decade” by Klause Blache
Data volumes are becoming almost incomprehensible. Machine intelligence, artificial intelligence, wireless, 3D printing, augmented reality, virtual reality, interconnectivity, smart wearables, autonomous vehicles and robotics, blockchain, virtual assistants, and many more weren’t even in picture five to ten years ago (and still aren’t) for many reliability and maintainability (R&M) initiatives. Big data collects lots of information, but analysis of that data is rarely done. Most companies are still struggling to improve and survive day-to-day. Over 25 years ago, better reliability and maintenance practices were identified as being key to improved manufacturing capability in the United States. There has been some improvement, but implementation and culture are still roadblocks. In this session we will be discussing what R&M is needed to be successful as new challenges and opportunities evolve.
