Unfortunately, making the goal is the easy part; following through is far more difficult. Often this is because we make a goal without taking into consideration other factors that need to be addressed as well. Losing 15 lbs, for instance, may be a good goal. However, if the person with the goal severely dislikes strenuous exercise and doesn't plan to change their eating habits, it is unlikely that they will succeed.
We see the same thing in the world of asset performance management. Companies want greater reliability but don't know exactly how to do it. They need a plan forward and, like those wanting to lose 15 lbs, need to remove the issues that are holding them back. In order to help companies eliminate failures, Meridium is making Failure Elimination the subject of its second workshop.
Meridium's Failure Elimination Workshop will take place November 18th in Houston, TX. Reliability experts will teach attendees how to employ root cause analysis as well as set up metrics and scorecards to evaluate how well a company's asset strategies are working. The experts will also discuss how advanced reliability analytics, like those found in APM software, can be used to make sense of more complex situations. By attending the workshop, attendees will be better prepared to find failures and then fix them.
The APM Foundation Work Process Workshop taking place on November 4th in Houston, TX is a pre-requisite for the Failure Elimination Workshop. For more information on these and other Meridium Work Process Workshops, please click here.
