|12:15 - 12:40|| Seminar: How to Cost Justify Your Lubrication Program
The cost of a reactive maintenance program can be up to 10 times that of a proactive approach. This affects numerous aspects of your business, including downtime, employee morale, attrition to share price and even operational viability. In this presentation, Austin O'Kelley of Noria Corporation explains why a proactive maintenance regime and sound asset management programme should start with world-class lubrication.
|Austin O'Kelley, Director of Global Operations, Noria|
|12:50 - 13:15|| Seminar: The Reason for Condition Monitoring (a key component of asset management)
The avoidance of serious machine failures through the detection of incipient faults is only the first part of the benefits deliverable by a condition monitoring (CM) programme. Better still is to avoid the faults in the first place, by correct installation and operation. And the CM analyst – through involvement in the processes of design, specification, acceptance testing, repair, alignment, FMECA, and more – can do much to ensure this. But in many cases they are only delivering half of the benefits they are capable of.
|Dean Whittle, Instructor, Reliability Training Institute|

|12:15 - 13:45|| BEHIND CLOSED DOORS Round Table Discussion - "The impact of the global economy on the maintenance function"
The Round Table Discussion is closed to the public, but will be video recorded, edited and subsequently published as a podcast on the Maintec website, as well as in the Western Business Publishing print titles (Controls, Drives and Automation and Industrial Plant and Equipment).
Around a dozen invited participants are invited to take part in this discussion, pre-selected from exhibitors, industry experts, academics and show visitors.The session, which will last about 90 minutes, this year explores the topical issue of "The impact of the global economy on the maintenance function". With the UK keen to trade with distant growth markets, rather than with neighbouring countries, the subject is never more topical than today!
Chaired by Consulting Editor Andy Pye, strands which will be explored will include remote monitoring on a global scale, how to run a viable maintenance function from a distance, the availability of spares, recruiting local staff, and understanding different business cultures. And wherever else the conversation leads!
