Great two day event with CRL Training Workshop and presentations
The attendees, presenters and supporters of the two day symposium on the lawn, Uptime Consultant at the back there!
An excellent two days immersed in Reliability with the Reliabilityweb organisation and supporting partners Pruftechnik, IRISS, Emerson, Interloc, Stork (Fluor Company) and ARMS Reliability.
Billed as the "Reliability & Asset Management Training Symposium" with world leaders in reliability like Terrence O'Hanlon and Dave Rieber from Reliabilityweb presenting keynotes and running training classes, supported by the associated companies mentioned above is was bound to be a successful event and it was.
Some delegates had been studying for their CRL (Certified Reliability Leader) exam that was to take place on the afternoon of the second day after attending three workshops to support that. This is the basis for many in industry to take the first steps in their reliability journey and from seeing the content is a great way to start.
The team from Reliabilityweb were just as I expected, warm, friendly and helpful with a schedule that ran like clockwork thanks mainly to Maura Abad who kept things on track.
I chose to attend the first two hour workshop with Martin Robinson, CEO of IRISS with 'How to Create an Effective Electrical Maintenance Program' which was eye opening for many attendees especially when we looked at risks of Arc Flash and electrocution.
The afternoon of day one I then took in a session from Oliver Booth of ARMS Reliability with his presentation 'How to Get Optimal Strategies on Every Asset All The Time' most of the content I already use when training or talking to my clients including, RCM, Criticality, Risks vs Rewards and Consequences of Failure.
Another well balanced session from a top presenter.
Day two started with three RAP talks, similar to a TED talk that last about 20 minutes and were presented by Ian Higham, Michael Whittaker from Emerson Automation and Terrance O'Hanlon CEO of Reliabilityweb.com
The morning workshop was from ARMS Reliability and Steve Vardy explaining their own 'Apollo' RCA approach to problem solving, basically more than 5 Whys and Fishbone; imagine mixing both with 5W branches on the Fishbone to broaden the analysis.
After another excellent lunch provided I took in a session for two hours with Dave Rieber of Reliabilityweb entitled 'How to Support, Promote and Sustain an Asset Condition Monitoring Project' another great presentation saying most of the things I already share; drive ROI, report the wins, act with integrity, sell the Condition Monitoring benefits relentlessly in your business.
Reliabilityweb.com are going to return to the UK in 2018 so look out for those dates, I know I will be there either taking in the presentations or presenting if they will have me!
Highly recommended and if you are looking at a formal qualification for Reliability this is the place to look.
