The conference aims to find practical, affordable and sustainable asset management solutions for CEOs, MDs and engineering planners, as well as to provide an opportunity for production and operation managers to discuss solutions for sustainable production and service delivery.
“Sustainability is no longer only the concern of green activists and members of the G8 or the United Nations. Asset engineers and artisans face the realities of legislation, regulations and standards and must, therefore, apply best practice to adhere to these,” says Pragma CEO Adriaan Scheepers.
The conference will start with three workshops presented by Pragma partner consultants Dean Griffin and Graham Fogel, who will discuss and untangle the increasingly popu- lar asset management standard, PAS 55, which is the British Standards Institution’s publicly available specification for the opti- mised management of physical assets.
Pragma consultant Stefan Terblanche will discuss the fundamentals of asset management, and author of Maintenance and Reliability Best Practices Ramesh Gulati will discuss this topic.
Attendees can choose sessions that suit their specific interests.
Other key speakers include independent political analyst and motivational speaker David Silke, knowledge management consultants Knoco director Dr Ian Corbett and Reliability.com publisher Terrence O’Hanlon.
Chartis Australia senior account engineer Ian Barnard, Pragma products MD Arnold Botha and John Mitchell, author of An Introduction to Machinery Monitoring and Analysis and Physical Asset Management Handbook, will also be speaking at the conference.
