With a huge amount of resource and costs required at the design stage, it is vital that companies are ensuring the design process is fit for purpose. Considerations at the early stages of design contribute most significantly to the success or failure of the final product. Especially as the reliability of equipment cannot be enhanced by maintenance, only preserved.
This seminar will shift focus towards designing for reliability, and how it can be used to reduce maintenance and ensure reliability throughout the life cycle of an asset. Understand the significance of design considerations for cost-saving and maintenance reduction.
Attendees will leave with an understanding of how reliability may be inputted into design, and how it is managed and demonstrated in various production and use activities. Learn how to effectively and efficiently manage your systems, products and equipment in order to maintain reliability throughout the full life-cycle, and how design can impact this. Utilise opportunities for networking with other industry practitioners and share experiences.
Attend this seminar to:
- Hear from asset management, design and reliability specialists from organisations across engineering sectors including Sellafield Ltd, Caterpillar Defense, Dyson, Rolls-Royce and Network Rail
- Learn how achieving clear definitions of life-cycle conditions, loads and costs, can assist in saving costs and man-hours, reduce maintenance needs and guarantee safety
- Address challenges in capturing data in context, and using trending data to measure design robustness
- Build upon and improve existing design and strategies for whole life cycle costs
- Take part in interactive discussions during our roundtable sessions focusing in on key challenges relating to designing for reliability
Key programme highlights:
- Rolls-Royce address how alignment through the levels of detail within a large company making complex systems can improve the reliability of assets
- Caterpillar Defense discuss how to build upon and improve existing asset design including environmentally sustainable practices
