Calgary, AB — The Proactive Maintenance Management Seminar, set for the Glenmore Inn in Calgary Nov. 14-17, 2005, will provide attendees with the practical tactics necessary to design and implement effective and efficient preventive and predictive industrial and plant maintenance using lean, reliability based and TPM strategies.

The event is organized by Maintenance Technology International Inc. of Cochrane, Alta., and presented by maintenance expert and Machinery & Equipment MRO contributor Tex Leugner.

“In Canada, sudden unexpected machinery problems cost millions of dollars each day, due to ineffective or inadequate PM and the misuse of Pdm programs,” says Leugner. “This waste results in poor quality products and reduced capacity, because quality products or processes cannot be produced by poor quality or inadequately managed equipment.”

The ideas presented in the seminar will move equipment management culture from reactive to proactive, a change that will result in reducing maintenance costs, while increasing productivity, capacity and quality, says Leugner.


Topics include, but are not limited to: PM review processes; effective use of Pdm technologies like ultrasonics, thermography, vibration analysis, oil analysis, particle counting and ferrography; planning and scheduling; lean- and reliability-based principles; development of bills of materials; life cycle costing techniques; maintainability improvements; and failure analysis techniques. These are part of the philosophy of ‘Total Equipment Management from Design to Disposal.’

The seminar takes place over four days, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. Fees are $1,695.00 plus GST per person (e-mail or call, to discuss available discounts).

Handout materials provided at the seminar include a 600-page reference covering every topic. In addition, the references Practical Handbook of Machinery Lubrication, 3rd Edition, and the NFPA 70B Handbook of Electrical Equipment Maintenance, will be provided — in all, a $345.00 retail value.
