The IMarEST Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) series of conferences have established the reputation of not merely raising the bar of the technical discussion – always the aim of Institute events – but of moving the level of the discussion onto an altogether higher level among owners and in the maritime industry.
The 3rd IMarEST Condition Based Maintenance Conference 2012 will not just be another technical discussion of the subject. Since the condition monitoring technologies and methods which permit a condition based maintenance regime are becoming increasingly mature, it has been important for some time to make the business case for the adoption of the approach rather than simply to further discuss the technical possibilities. The aim is to determine what will be the tipping point for widespread adoption of CBM within organisations.
When properly implemented with the necessary buy in from the top, an intelligent CBM approach to maintenance reduces the residual cost of ownership. Otherwise when adopted as an addition – rather than replacement to traditional planned maintenance, it becomes an additional cost.
CBM systems fail because of the lack of cultural implementation with organisations. Thus moving logically to the next stage this year, the 2012 conference will have as its theme the removal of obstacles to cultural change for CBM; as well as human factors and strategic planning for an optimised, often risk based maintenance regime.
