Maintenance Technology, along with industry consultant and author Al
Poling will present a webinar designed to help you measure the cost
of unreliable operations. Profitability is the goal of every enterprise
and asset reliability has an impact on the bottom line. But what is
that impact? Is it worth the investment and effort required to develop a
reliable culture? Poling will demonstrate the true cost of unreliability to
plant operations and how establishing a focused and sustained reliable
culture will have a direct and positive impact on a company's bottom
line. To register, visit:

Webinar: Not Your Granddad's Machinery Protection System. Machinery
protection systems are generally thought of as a necessity that acts as an "earthquake switch"
for your critical machinery. Often, these systems are stranded in hard-to-reach areas and are
not connected to the plant's data processes. They are typically hard to configure and require
many spare parts to deal with the different types of signals. This webinar addresses new
technologies that are emerging to deliver valuable predictive data from the protection system,
making it a contributor to improving plant and asset reliability.

Webinar: Asset Management as the Foundation for Your IIoT Ecosystem.

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) continues to be a buzzword in the industry-but how to
implement an IIoT ecosystem can feel confusing or overwhelming. Connecting your smart
devices through a robust asset management program to the IIoT is an easy way to start.
Most facilities already have most of the elements in place-and can utilize that infrastructure
to begin realizing the benefits promised in the IIoT buzz. This webinar will help you use your
asset-management program to realize IIoT benefits, use mobile devices to sovle problems, and
extend the value of IIoT across the life cycle of your smart field devices.

to an organization's asset-management ecosystem. Our latest webinar will provide you with
expert insight and lessons learned through a case study that showcases a large multinational
company's approach to MRO data optimization. maintenancetechnology.com/1706sphera
