Postponement of the Asset Management: Reliability for a Digital Age seminar
The Institution of Mechanical Engineers is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and in line with government and FCO / WHO guidelines is implementing measures to ensure the health and safety of our attendees and supporting staff at IMechE events. Following UK Government advice to restrict social interaction and movement in public areas, we have therefore taken the decision to postpone the Asset Management: Reliability for a Digital Age seminar due to take place on 26 March 2020.
Please be assured that your delegate ticket will be carried over to the new event date. However, if you would like to refund your ticket, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will aim to process this as soon as possible.
We hope you understand that, under the present fluctuating circumstances, it is not possible for us to confirm the date at this precise moment, however the new date will be communicated to you as soon as the scale of the impact of COVID-19 becomes clearer.
Join this seminar to learn how to successfully integrate advanced digital systems and deliver real value for asset owners and operators. Leveraging asset history and operational data can inform better decisions, enabling you to reduce downtime and expenditure. However, given the potentially disruptive nature of this technology, it is imperative that these digital capabilities are aligned with your mechanical engineering requirements. Learn from leaders in aviation, rail infrastructure, renewable energy, nuclear, and power distribution about how digital tools are revolutionising the operation and performance of their assets.
Cutting-edge industry presentations will demonstrate how condition monitoring and data analysis are being used to give insights into present and future performance for assets at different stages of their lifecycle. Return to your organisation with knowledge of what tools and technologies are best suited to support your assets and learn how to incorporate them smoothly into your operational environment.
Take part in peer-to-peer roundtables led by asset management and reliability experts, giving you the opportunity to raise specific challenges and work together to propose solutions. Talking points from each discussion will then be fed back to the whole delegation and distributed to attendees to ensure these valuable insights can be put into practice.
This is your opportunity to beat the buzzwords and understand the true potential for digital twins to meaningfully enhance asset management. You will hear from experts with practical experience in the development, implementation and operation of these digital assets. Furthermore, learn how real-time data is being collected and processed in order to continuously improve performance and efficiency.
This event is a must-attend for asset managers at all stages of digital transformation. It is a unique opportunity to share best practice with engineers from across mechanical engineering and forge connections as you take the next step into digital era.
Attend this seminar to:
- Learn about the application of data analytics to support design, operation, maintenance and life extension decisions
