Building Your Predictive Maintenance Roadmap: Steps to Start or Take Your Program to the Next Level

Wednesday, January 18, 2023, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM ET

Your Maintenance and Reliability programs are only getting more complex. Between the supply chain challenges, disruptive technologies, remote work, and staff shortages, maintenance teams are being stretched and expected to do more with less. Predictive maintenance strategies can help. Understanding function and failure is the backbone of any Predictive Maintenance program. It lets teams focus on failure modes and prioritize plant systems, while sensors and software manage automated data collection and subsequent tasks. We will help you understand how to select a strategy with the appropriate technology and implement it into a new or existing program. We will also overview people and processes needed to successfully implement within an organization. The webinar will be educational for maintenance and reliability professionals beginning a Predictive Maintenance journey, as well as professionals working in programs that needs to be refreshed, restarted, or taken to the next level.

Key Takeaways on Building your Predictive Maintenance Roadmap:

  • Break down the seemingly “insurmountable” challenges into a roadmap for better outcomes
  • Understand asset criticality and accurately assess how it benefits your organization
  • Combine multiple technologies and match failure modes to effectively eliminate and/or mitigate root causes
  • Understand the keys of implementing a new program and the pillars of a successful, sustainable program
