Clearwater Beach, FL — The fourth annual Ultrasound World conference, hosted by UE Systems, is scheduled from Jan. 27-30, 2008, in Clearwater Beach Florida, at the Hilton Beach Resort.

Ultrasound World IV offers numerous lectures and workshops for maintenance and plant operation professionals. Presented by international plant operation experts involved in all aspects of predictive maintenance, this year’s conference will focus on topics such as energy conservation, bearing monitoring techniques, lubrication inspection, and condition based monitoring.

The keynote speaker will be Timothy Goshert, worldwide reliability and maintenance manager with Cargill. He brings 28 years of industry experience to the event, with extensive expertise in plant operations management, project engineering, and construction management. Over the past decade, Goshert has been involved in the strategy development, supplier selection process, and the implementation phase of Cargill’s Select Supplier process for M&R products.

Goshert’s topic is ‘Creating Value in Supply Chain Partnerships’. He will focus on the fundamentals of strategic development and the supplier selection process, and will relate from his personal experience implementations of these processes in the maintenance and reliability field.


“Creating a win-win relationship for suppliers and customers is one of my professional goals, and will be the focus of my presentation for this year’s Ultrasound World event,” Goshert stated. “Creating supply chain partnerships in the maintenance and reliability field has been a topic of discussion for the last several years. The strategy and path requires a much different attitude that has been normally employed.”
