Fort Myers FL (PRWEB) February 5, 2008
Reliabilityweb.com announced today that representatives from the new Association for Maintenance Professionals, the Vibration Association of New Zealand, Japan Institute for Plant Maintenance, the Korean Association of Plant Engineers, the Plant Engineering and Maintenance Association of Canada will all meet on March 17 in Las Vegas at RCM-2008 Reliability Centered Maintenance Managers' Forum and EAM-2008 Enterprise Asset Management Summit to discuss global cooperation for empowering maintenance and reliability professionals.
"We could not be more pleased to support the maintenance and reliability community with a meeting like this," stated conference organizer Terrence O'Hanlon "So many maintenance professionals re-invent the wheel as they begin to move to more reliability based strategies. By encouraging Professional Associations to cooperate and share knowledge, the ultimate winner is the maintenance and reliability professional."
The topics covered at the conference include Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM), considered a proactive strategy to ensure that factory assets provide the desired function at the desired output. Studies show that companies that employ Reliability Centered Maintenance enjoy a 10% cost advantage over companies that are dependant upon time based preventive maintenance.
Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) is the other focus area for this learning event as further research shows "best in class" companies use powerful integrated maintenance software solutions like EAM and Analytics not only to track equipment history, maintenance labor and material; but to collect leading key performance indicators that are shared with stakeholders across the enterprise.
"With energy and material costs rising, combined with the credit market tightening, many companies are desperately seeking new areas to increase production output while reducing operating cost." continued O'Hanlon "Reliability based asset management is an area that can reap significant returns that provide companies with a global market advantage in the efficient supply chain brought in by the flat world most compete in. This event features 50 real world case studies that prove the theory."
Seats are still available for RCM-2008 and EAM-2008 held March 17-20 in Las Vegas. Full program details and registration information is available online at MaintenanceConference.com or at Reliabilityweb.com
