The world is changing quickly, and maintenance techniques are changing too. In the early 20th century, maintenance was simple – fix it when it breaks. 100 years later, we have numerous tools and techniques at our disposal, including preventive, predictive, proactive and reliability centered and risk based tools. Moreover, the rise of industry 4.0 has provided a unique opportunity to improve our asset management plans even further through tools such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and digital twins. 

During this webinar, you will hear about how maintenance has changed over the last century, and where it is going in the future. You will also learn about some of the key principles needed to develop your own maintenance plan and optimise your strategy, including:  

  • The importance of preparing information

  • Review of failure history

  • Approaching to establish new tasks

Who should attend?

Engineering, asset, maintenance and reliability managers and aspiring managers working within or supporting manufacturing, industrial, utilities or commercial sectors with responsibility for the application and improvement of maintenance plans and procedures.
