RPM Symposium

The RPM (Reliability Process & Maintenance) Symposium is a Midwest-based conference event where end users can network and learn about industrial facilities, reliability, maintenance best practices, electric motor driven powertrains, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions, and so much more! This conference is NOT sales pitches – it is real technology and education right in front of your eyes!  And it's FREE!

CONFERENCE DETAILS

In addition to keynote speakers, an Ask The Experts panel discussion and interactive seminars, this symposium includes:

  • Exhibit Booths from HECO and their leading partners in electric motors, predictive maintenance, and the evolving technology of rotating and fluid processing equipment
  • 20+ learning modules that specialize in what other companies are doing to increase profitability by preventing failures in bearings, pumps, process equipment, gear boxes and motors
  • Networking opportunities
THE CENTER'S EXPERT TO PRESENT AT RPM

Topic: Do You Have the Right Approach to Machine Upkeep?
Presented by: Chuck Werner, Manager Operational Excellence/Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt

Late deliveries, longer lead times, customer dissatisfaction and increased costs – these are all issues that commonly result when our equipment does not support us. Of course, often it is WE who are not supporting our equipment rather than the other way around. A Total Productive Maintenance strategy helps organizations improve the availability, performance, efficiency, quality and predictability of production machines. Join us as we discuss how to engage your entire workforce to maximize productivity and profitability through a standardized approach to machine upkeep, providing your business with the ability to take on more sales, meet the changing needs of customers, prolong the life of your machines and more.

Topic: How to “See” the Health of Your Equipment to Prevent Disruption
Presented by: Chuck Werner, Manager Operational Excellence/Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt

In today’s manufacturing environment, the ability to “see” the health of your equipment has become so affordable and easy to implement that the practice of running key pieces of equipment to the point of failure should be all but obsolete. Maintenance programs have evolved from “breakdown” maintenance, preventative and predictive, and into a level of condition-based upkeep that was previously only idealized. This discussion will cover the application of sensors to critical assets, the ability to utilize baselines and “change of state” to identify issues before they blossom into downtime, and the use of data to improve reliability of equipment and production planning.
