Executive Overview:
Industry 4.0 is upon us. The nature of manufacturing, and of manufactured goods, has changed. Everything that can be connected, will be. In a breath, how it works is as follows…

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices generate and collect data. Data is processed by software. Manufacturers use A.I. and software to create better, more automated processes and produce better products. Those innovative (read: better) products include new sensors that generate even more data. The cycle repeats, ever faster – Better and Better and Better!

So why should you care? Manufacturers and technology providers must do more than just keep up. They must make this cycle the ENGINE that powers their businesses.

Some organizations think of maintenance management as merely an annoying cost center activity rather than one that leads to solid financial improvements. The fact is, moving to an overall asset management approach using RCM principles can help drive optimal equipment performance, which translates directly into bottom line business improvements.

This workshop introduces people to the intricacies of modern asset management so that they are best prepared to actively sponsor an asset performance improvement initiative. Roles and responsibilities within a reliability improvement initiative are examined and the keys to success are discussed along with the review of actual case studies.

RCM3, the new standard in risk-based Reliability-Centered Maintenance, is introduced in the context of the 4th Generation of maintenance and reliability management. Discussions revolve around how it provides the framework necessary to develop a sensible and defensible asset management program. Physical asset management through RCM3 also forms the framework for a successful culture change for management, maintenance, operations and engineering. Correctly applied, RCM3 achieves greater safety and environmental integrity, improved operating performance and profitability, higher maintenance cost-effectiveness, and longer useful life of physical assets.
