The bottom line on asset availability

Nov. 12 Webcast looks at how small improvements can drive productivity, profitability

10/30/2009


Keeping your plant assets up and running is crucial to productivity and profit, but most facilities don't really know if they are running at peak efficiency. A 1% improvement in plant availability means 3 1/2 more days of operation per year.
How to achieve that kind of improvement in asset availability, and how that improvement can translate into a safer and more efficient plant, will be the subject of a new Webcast produced by Plant Engineering and IBM on November 12 at 2 p.m. EST.

Bob Parker from IDC Manufacturing Insights will discuss the need for asset intensive industries to improve asset productivity. He will examine the importance of improving return on asset performance and how better asset management contributes to substantial improvement.

Dr. David Shipman, Energy & Utilities Industry Director of IBM, will outline the benefits from an integrated solution of enterprise asset management and enterprise content management. He'll further explain how enterprise content management and asset management ensures the smooth, compliant and profitable running of organizations by giving maintenance workers the right information the first time to maximize productivity and uptime.
