Topic: Optimizing Preventive Maintenance

Preventive Maintenance (PM) programs are the base of every organization’s reliability plans. However, too often they become the repository of desperate measures to placate the organization and half formed root cause analyses. A proactive PM program must be under systemic evaluation to continue to give the results organizations demand. This session will outline such an evaluation program and emphasize the value of using failure modes to create effective PMs.

Presenter: Ralph "Pete" Peters

Topic: Scoreboard for Maintenance Excellence Audits and ISO 55000


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.
