MAINTENANCE & RELIABILITY INDUSTRY 4.0
28-29 April 2021 – Virtual Edition Half Day Series – Africa
About Maintainence and Reliability
Manufacturing companies around the world are grappling with the appropriate response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) for their employees, customers and their businesses. This unique situation of an overstocked oil market and a massive fall in demand has created a once a generation test of resilience planning and organization flexibility.
For organizations that are on the path to being more agile and have value streams defined, the Covid-19 situation is a great litmus test – they should be able to look at value streams which are still yielding (or are expected to) yield high value and focus on those while curtailing the other ones.
As the digital, physical and human worlds continue to integrate, we experience a deep transformation in industry, which far-reaches into our lives. The 4th industrial revolution, the internet of things and big data, the industrial internet, are changing the way we design, manufacture, provide products and services. Maintenance is one of the application areas, referred to as Maintenance 4.0, in the form of self-learning and smart system that predicts failure, makes diagnosis and triggers maintenance.
Plant reliability is an essential factor in quality management, for ensuring customer satisfaction by minimising production downtime. Buzzwords linked to Industry 4.0 like “AI,” and “Automation” bring to light questions associated with its changing manufacturing processes and operations. How will the new manufacturing trends of Industry 4.0 implicate plant reliability for better or for worse? How can manufacturers mitigate the transition to come out ahead?
The virtual conference will run on an e-platform allowing delegates to participate in interactive discussions and presentations and also engage in training programs. Our aim is to impart adequate knowledge to our esteemed delegates with great takeaways to implement in their respective organizations .
