Five Steps to IIoT Proposal Success

Presented By Michael Kanellos

IIoT technology implementation has the potential to transform your operation by cutting energy use, helping you establish and benefit from predictive/preventive maintenance, differentiating your company from competitors, increasing worker safety, and reducing component and data-management costs. For most, however, the biggest hurdle to implementation is simply starting.

In this webinar, Michael Kanellos, IoT Analyst at OSIsoft, San Leandro, CA (osisoft.com) will provide you with fivesteps that will help you assemble an IIoT project proposal that will lead to approval and successful implementation. If initiating an IIoT project is on your to-do list, but you’re not sure how to begin, this webinar will get you off the dime.

Varnish: The Silent Machine Killer

The impact of particle and moisture contamination on the reliability of industrial equipment has been well documented. Put simply, running a machine with sub-optimal levels of oil cleanliness results in shorter component life and poor asset reliability. But what’s less well understood is the effects of varnish on system performance. Just like cholesterol in the human cardiovascular system, varnish – a by-product of oil degradation – slowly creates issues with deposit formation, blocking vital clearance in pumps and valves causing system slow down and eventually catastrophic failure. In this session we’ll look at why varnish is becoming more and more of an issue in industrial equipment and how it can be mitigated through effective varnish control strategies.

Mark Barnes serves as the Senior Vice President of Sales and Business Development for Des-Case Corporation. He has 21 years of experience in the fields of lubrication management, oil analysis, and contamination control, has published more than 150 technical articles and white papers, and is an invited speaker at conferences around the globe.

7 Habits of a Highly Effective Maintenance Leader

Being a Maintenance leader requires one to be efficient and effective. Of course a Maintenance team leader needs to understand how to use planning and scheduling to drive work execution, and how to manage assets using strategies like preventive, predictive and condition-based maintenance. But to be effective in their role, Maintenance leaders also need to master and model certain behaviors.

In this webinar Ricky Smith will discuss seven habits he has observed through his experience as a U.S. Army military leader and in his work with manufacturers around the globe.

You’ll learn from Ricky’s examples of what effective leadership looks like, how to approach solving problems as a team, and behaviors that drive expected results. Get ready to be inspired by this fresh perspective on how influential a Maintenance leader can be!

Optimizing Service Delivery For Asset Operators

Whether you are in the business of operating a power plant, developing an oil field, or manufacturing pharmaceuticals, your mission-critical assets need timely maintenance to ensure consistent uptime. Asset failures can cost companies hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue, reduced durability, and increased safety and compliance risks. By transforming service delivery from manual processes to digital-service execution, companies provide smarter maintenance while also optimizing resource utilization and improving safety and compliance indicators. Join this webinar from GE Digital ServiceMax to learn how to improve your service execution.

Not Your Granddad’s Machinery Protection System

Machinery protection systems are generally thought of as a necessity that acts as an “earthquake switch” for your critical machinery. Often, these systems are stranded in hard-to-reach areas and are not connected to the plant’s data processes. They are typically hard to configure and require many spare parts to deal with the different types of signals. New technologies are emerging to deliver valuable predictive data from the protection system, making it a contributor to improving plant and asset reliability.

Topic to be discussed include:

• Traditional protection systems are evolving to provide more value.
• Mobile applications are making interaction with these systems more efficient.
• Flexible I/O is reducing spare-parts inventory and allowing late configuration changes.

Factors that Make or Break Reliability Programs

The concept of Reliability and creating a Reliable Manufacturing Process is on everyone’s minds these days. Constrained budgets and fragile economies are driving many organizations to use reliability to realize more from their existing assets. However, improving reliability is not as simple as increasing asset performance.

>> Click here to view the webinar.

Improving reliability first requires understanding your current level of performance. Only then can you figure out how to improve that performance. Some questions that immediately come to mind:

— Do you know how you compare to your competition and your peers?
— Do you know your reliability weaknesses and why?
— Do you have an organizational structure that supports reliability?
— Do people in your organization even know what reliability is?

These are just a few of many questions that will determine if you have a chance of becoming more reliable.

Watch this webinar to acquire answers to these and other questions and to learn why some reliability journeys reach their goals and why other fail.
