The Evolution of Maintenance Technology:

Introducing Efficient Plant

F

ROM ITS START, Maintenance Technology's mission has been to deliver
must-have business and operational intelligence for plant operations. The
practices, news, and case studies provided have always been focused on operational efficiency. Your needs, though, have evolved as new technologies, new customer
demands, and new realities have taken root. Technological advances have transformed
the way we live and what our readers expect from their work.
In 2017, simply maintaining plant assets isn't enough. It's with that in mind that
we are excited to announce that, starting with this issue, Maintenance Technology
will become Efficient Plant.
Why Efficient Plant? We want our name to better reflect what you strive for in
your operations. You want your physical assets, facilities, and workforce to perform
and function in the best possible manner with the least amount of wasted time,
effort, energy, and money. We see "efficient" as the sum of reliability, maintainability,
safety, and profitability.
We will continue in-depth coverage of traditional reliability and maintenance
disciplines while we add content about mobile technologies, IIoT/IoT, cybersecurity,
environmental risks, smart controls, the empowered workforce, asset optimization,
financial management, and more.
In addition to the name change, we've:
 redesigned and reformatted our print edition
 completely rebuilt our website to provide more and better content,
in a variety of formats
 enhanced our newsletters to better keep you informed
 added new columnists and recurring features to help keep you
up to date on technology
 introduced a new award program, expanded event partner coverage-and we're
continually looking to do more.
We welcome your comments, thoughts, feedback, and ideas. This is an exciting
time for all of us.

We see
"efficient"
as the sum
of reliability,
maintainability,
safety, and
profitability.
