"Leaping Forward Using Deming Principles in Asset Management"
Back by popular demand, Doc Palmer has over three decades of industrial experience as a practitioner primarily within the maintenance department of the Jacksonville Electric Authority, a major United States electric utility. From 1990 through 1994, Palmer was responsible for overhauling the existing maintenance planning organization. The resulting success played a role in expanding planning to all crafts and stations owned and operated by the utility. Publisher McGraw-Hill subsequently sought out Palmer to author the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook published in 1999 and now in its third edition. Currently Palmer provides guidance, mentoring, and training for companies internationally for maintenance planning success.

ABOUT THE CUSTOMER ADVISORY BOARD (CAB) MEETING
Following the format used last year, the Oracle Utilities Multi-Product Customer Advisory Board (CAB) scheduled for March 3-4, 2014, will be open to all customers for all Oracle Utilities products, and is a separate event from FullCircle. The CAB meeting will be used to present Product Roadmaps and to solicit feedback from customers. Please note that this FullCircle announcement is not an invitation to the CAB. Invitation and registration information for the CAB is forthcoming under separate cover from your Oracle representative . There is no cost to attend the CAB; registration will be handled separately (travel and other costs are the responsibility of each attendee). However, there is a low registration fee to attend the self-funded FullCircle OWAM event that relies solely on attendee registration fees and industry partner sponsorships each year. For CAB questions, please contact Bob.Darchi@oracle.com.
