You are probably well aware of the benefits of reliability. All those proactive tasks, condition monitoring tests, and all the other essential elements of a reliability program seem like very good ideas. But there is one very big roadblock: breaking out of the reactive maintenance “emergencies” that pop up every day. When is there time to fix tomorrow’s problems when it is almost impossible to keep up with today’s problems? Well, there is a way to break out of this nasty cycle, and we will explain how to do it in this on-demand webinar.

Equipment failure is an unwelcome but unavoidable reality that negatively affects a facility’s production time, capability, and workplace safety. If you had the chance to identify and remedy the most out-of-control maintenance costs while reducing your team's reactive workload, would you do it? In this on-demand webinar, we explain how a combination of consultation, training, and implementation can help your plant teams achieve a cost saving solutions process.

Shutdowns, turnarounds, and outages are complex, high-cost undertakings that have impacts across the entire business, from shareholders and board members to front-line maintenance workers. When not well-planned and managed, STOs can create safety risks, unplanned downtime, and cost overruns, resulting in reduced profitability if the organization is not able to return on schedule to full operating capacity.

There is an awareness gap between management and maintenance that can result from two factors: (1) management may have limited or no knowledge of the maintenance function and its ability to contribute to the manufacturing process; and (2) maintenance personnel, managers included, can have a limited understanding of the business side of manufacturing. The result is that management and maintenance often are unsure how they together contribute to the company's success. This on-demand webinar examines what can cause this awareness gap and suggests ways to overcome it.

Maintenance is a team sport. Aometimes that means bringing in free agents to help with tasks that aren't core competencies. When an organization considers contracting MRO services, the level of service should be consistent with the rest of the organization. This on-demand webinar explores the pros and cons of outsourcing.

In plant rearrangement, as in other technical work, the devil is always in the details. But the time and expense to produce a detailed plant layout is often out of reach for maintenance management. Frequently, the result is poorly planned rearrangements that leave tradespeople standing around while engineers and managers try to figure ways around details that were missed or ignored when the move was planned. This on-demand webinar offers real-world case studies about the use of 3D laser mapping to provide current and proposed plant layouts.
