Enjoy the late October outdoors in Austin, Texas

This year’s Emerson Exchange conference for the Americas will take place on my home turf of Austin, Texas during the week of October 24 through 28. Registration is open and you can save $400 through the end of August on the registration fee.

Knowing that getting approval to attend can be a challenge for some, the Emerson Exchange Board of Directors has a justification letter template to help you make your case. And, if you enjoy the outdoors, I have suggestions on some things to do.

I’ll be featuring some of the presentations to be given there over the next several weeks. You can find a fully searchable list of presentations here.

Emerson's Will Goetz


Today let’s begin with technology and workflow to improve reliability. Emerson’s Will Goetz will present, Best Practices for Using Condition Monitoring to Drive Maintenance Workflows. Here’s his abstract [hyperlinks added]:

A well-designed condition monitoring system can find the early warning signs of failures but what happens next is equally important. This session will explore real world failures to develop the best practice model for using condition information to drive maintenance work. It will use Doc Palmer‘s time study analysis to illustrate the productivity potential of planning & scheduling and demonstrate the impact of these practices on the MRO [maintenance, repair, and operations] supply chain. In addition, it will explore the use of criticality/risk models in prioritizing work and explore the business impact of the best practice model.

Will will share how process manufacturers and producers have an opportunity to reduce downtime by as much as 75% per failure and incident maintenance costs by 90% through the effective combination of machinery condition monitoring and redesigned workflows to support a more proactive approach.

Since most safety incidents occur during non-steady state conditions, such as startups and shutdowns, top quartile performers have much lower injury rates, higher availability and lower maintenance costs. He’ll demonstrate how to how to set up an organization and work process to use condition monitoring data to plan and execute corrective maintenance as part of an overall reliability strategy.

If you have a role in the reliable operations of your manufacturing or production site, this is one presentation you’ll want to attend. You can also connect and interact with other reliability experts in the Reliability & Maintenance group in the Emerson Exchange 365 community.
