FREE: Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

In the exhibit booth, SMRP maintenance and reliability professionals engaged and educated middle school students, high school students, and families about science and engineering from a maintenance and reliability perspective. Attendees stood in front of cutting-edge technology to explore heat transmission through various objects, while others listened to high frequency sound waves captured by the ultrasonic gun that humans typically cannot hear.

“When this opportunity presented itself, SMRP wanted to take advantage of educating students about the maintenance and reliability engineering world and informing these potential future leaders about the abundance of career opportunities available in manufacturing. We were able to share with the students and their parents what SMRP does for industry, as well as how we can help them with scholarships and education opportunities,” said Shon Isenhour, CMRP, vice chair of SMRP and director of global training for GPAllied, Inc. Over the three-day festival, more than 700 paper airplanes were built and discussion between M&R professionals with 150,000 plus festival goers revolved around SMRP career & scholarship opportunities, the importance of SMRP in the community, and the art behind the technology used in the M&R field.
