Presenter: Ralph "Pete" Peters

Topic: Scoreboard for Maintenance Excellence Audits and ISO 55000

Synopsis:

Learn how a Scoreboard for Maintenance Excellence audit can deliver a Strategic Physical Asset Management Plan with very specific actions and tasks necessary to help achieve ISO 55000 compliance. With ISO 55000 requirements being very vague and descriptive, results from a Scoreboard audit are specific and prescriptive as to best practice needs. The new ISO 55000 standard will become much more important as today's top leaders finally realize the importance of physical asset management. Therefore a Scoreboard audit and deliverables provide key elements for achieving ISO 55000 requirements.

July Webinar

Date: July 14
Time: 3:00pm Eastern
Cost: Free for Members       $99 for Non-members

Presenter: Joel Levitt

Topic: Photographs and Good Maintenance Practices

Synopsis:

“A picture is worth a thousand words and a great picture is worth a thousand pictures”

Documentation and communication using photographs in maintenance has changed dramatically in the last few years. Pictures are replacing words or sketches.

Almost no one in maintenance has training in taking great pictures for maintenance purposes. There is a group who take pictures for some of the similar reasons. This group has trainings, protocols, and well thought through techniques. This group has been made famous by popular TV. They are the CSIs (Crime Scene Investigators).

This webinar will introduce the concepts of CSI photography and demonstrate how it relates to maintenance photography. The three key concepts needed for coherent pictures (context is the story being told, point of view called POV is where the story is being told from, and acuity is what we are looking at or focused on) will be described and modelled.
