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

Tacoma Zach has been selected as one of the educational presenters at the 28th International Maintenance Conference (IMC 2013) this coming December in Bonita Springs, Florida. Zach, Managing Director of Uberlytics, will present Fundamental Aspects of a Successful and Meaningful Criticality Analysis. Having spent most of his career in industrial and municipal operations in the United States, Canada and Asia, Zach will apply his real world operational experience to discussing criticality analysis, a vital yet often overlooked cornerstone of asset management.


“I’m looking forward to presenting at IMC 2013 in December and sharing valuable insights for implementing a successful criticality analysis that delivers meaningful results in less time than you expect,” says Zach, who took over the ownership and direction of Uberlytics, LLC earlier this year. “We’ve seen exciting results in the field, where unidentified risks to uptime and compliance have regularly been discovered. Real risk and downtime have been avoided and real dollars have been saved - that’s a great story to tell.”

Prior to assuming the leadership of Uberlytics, Zach was Area Manager for Veolia Water, overseeing the industrial business in the Western US. Effective asset management was a key component in keeping the business profitable during the last economic downturn. Terry Nelson, founder of Uberlytics and architect of the Criticality Analyzer software, will be co-presenting. Between them, the two men build on decades of operational experience for understanding risk and criticality.

IMC 2013 is presented by Uptime Magazine and for maintenance reliability professionals from all over the world. More than 800 maintenance reliability leaders from more than 30 countries are expected to attend. (

Uberlytics specializes in physical asset criticality analysis for any serious enterprise asset management program or ISO 14001 certification requirement. The Uberlytics Criticality Analyzer™, a powerful software tool for rapid facility-wide criticality analysis, was specifically designed to discover unidentified risk, document the process and the risks, and identify mitigating steps. Uberlytics also offers Service Interruption Risk Assessment.

Uberlytics serves asset intensive organizations like refineries, complex industry, power utilities, and municipal water and wastewater utilities.
