“Mainstream is the best Asset Management and Reliability conference in the world”
Renowned Reliability Thought-Leader
WHAT IS BOOTLEGGED INNOVATION?
Make more, break less and not spend!
Regarded as one of the world’s best reliability educators, John has proved that maintenance and reliability can be a highly profitable investment, and not just a cost. John’s mission is to help Asset and Reliability executives with courage bridge the gap between the needs of the business and the ability of the workforce to execute in a secure and resilient environment.
UNIMAGINED RELIABILITY SUCCESS
Build strong team dynamics & harness your rock stars.
Cliff will share his unorthodox approach to solving ‘culture change’ using tools that don’t appear in any maintenance and reliability toolbox. This is a fascinating case study of how a culture of self-management, engagement, job satisfaction and ownership has achieved world class maintenance and reliability metrics. Cliff is the Corporate Maintenance Manager with Canadian Chemical manufacturer, ERCO Worldwide.
GOOD ASSET MANAGEMENT
SIMPLE TO EXPLAIN, BUT HARD TO DO
Jimmy Wilson – CEO, CBH Group
Jimmy Wilson, CEO, and Mike Greyling, Head of Asset Management at Australia’s largest grain exporter, CBH Group, discuss how a cultural shift in asset management practices can only be achieved if the Chief Executive and the Asset Manager are aligned in their approach to improvement and their belief in the primacy of their front-line teams.
DON’T BREAK THE CHAIN
ANCIENT ROMAN LESSONS FROM ASSET STRATEGY IN 97AD
Christer Idhammar, Founder, IDCON INC. (USA)
Maintenance employees are bombarded with new technologies, but some old well-known basics must still be in place. If sensors, that can measure the condition of components many times a second, are applied, can your organisation then handle a “100%” (or at very least, huge increases) in early detected failures? Yes, you can. Provided, the chain from detection to planning to scheduling to action is solid.
