Description

12th Annual IndyCon 2019

Attendees, sponsors, presenters, and vendors - anyone interested in maintenance & reliability (M&R) may register here for IndyCon 2019. This M&R conference is designed for Midwest businesses - Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Ohio.

Doc Palmer (Planning and Scheduling guru) is this year's Keynote Speaker and kicks off the conference speaking about the value in work planning and scheduling. Afterward, attendees may select up to 4 presentations from a list of 8 in addition to speaking with vendors and expanding their network of peers.

This year's event contains a second day where participants may take an SMRP CMRT or CMRP exam or attend an all-day hands-on workshop that helps folks implement reliability into their workplace - refer to workshop description below. This workshop will certainly reduce the trial and error mistakes often encountered when "going-it-alone". The workshop covers many topics ranging from proper leadership support, setting proper metrics, roles and responsibilities to precision maintenance tactics.

Membership survey impact on IndyCon - based on a membership survey, we were told that over the years we’ve done a great job of bringing an affordable world-class M&R conversation to Indiana businesses. However, these members also challenged us to take that natural next step, to help them implement M&R in their workplaces. Our chapter is now at that crossroad – starting this year we are beginning to break away from only “talking about M&R". Now, we are also bringing “know-how and hands-on learning and coaching" to our members. It starts with a new 2nd day at IndyCon that focuses on how to implement a reliability program. And, after the conference, we will be planning to set up shop at the doorsteps of area businesses across the state - more to come later.

2nd-day Reliable Manufacturing workshop description

We ask; what job roles and metrics are required to achieve reliability in the workplace - how do mindsets, culture and skill sets need to change to improve reliability, what do sponsorship and advocacy look like, what are the sources of most machine failures, and how does a reliability-centered plant with a highly engaged and higher skilled workforce impact profitability? We examine four major areas: Effective Organizations, Precision Maintenance® – essential craft skills, Process Excellence – essential asset care, and Asset Condition Assessment – on-line condition monitoring and machine analysis. What does "good" look like - we teach the importance and value of implementing an improvement process that; qualifies people, quantifies value and reports progress.
