By far the largest part of the conference was the learning sessions, which allowed those in attendance to learn about the ins and outs of the industry as well as where it is going.
Sessions included: Operational Reliability: What it is and How You Can Achieve it; IoT Fundamentals for Non-IT Reliability Professionals; A Day in the Life of a Maintenance Planner; Exploring the Future of Maintenance; Case Study: How to Develop and Manage Your Plant’s Maintenance Strategy; The Industry 4.0 Evolution: Taking Advantage of Connected Reliability; Going Beyond Routine Oil Analysis to Root Cause Analysis; and Wired vs. Wireless IIoT Solutions: The Pros, Cons and Key Considerations.
This year’s keynote address was Battle-Tested Principles for World-Class Leadership presented by Mark McGinnis, founder, SEAL Leadership LLC, and a former United States Navy SEAL.
Over 100 exhibitors were at Reliable Plant, displaying new products, services and technologies to those in attendance, as well as networking with industry professionals.
Also part of the conference was a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Tour, a TestOil Lab Tour, an ALS Tribology Tour, certificate programs, and pre- and post-conference workshops.
