Videos from the
Mainstream Conference

O

ne of my favorite conferences is the
Mainstream event. The 2017 version
was held this past May in Nashville, TN,
Gary L. Parr
(mainstreamna.com). "The maintenance,
Editorial Director
reliability, and asset-management conference for
companies that care about people, leadership,
innovation, and culture," is how the Eventful Group
organizers describe the conference. What makes the
event work is that they hold true to the mission of
serving "companies that care about people, leadership, innovation, and culture."
To help you experience a small bit of what the
conference had to offer, I collaborated with the
Mainstream people to do video interviews with
eight of the speakers who had stories that I found
interesting. It was
great fun to chat with
each of the presenters
about their experiences developing
reliability cultures
To view the global schedule of upcoming
at their companies.

While each of these
interviews is only
about 10 min. long,
we were generally able to hit the high points and give
you some thought-provoking material.
Here's a little about each of the speakers I
interviewed and what we discussed:
■ Rodney Pervier, of Boeing, Chicago (boeing.
com), has responsibility for evaluating what must
be done with his company's many real-estate
holdings. His program for collecting and analyzing
data and using the Asset Condition Room
approach to meeting and communication can be
beneficial to anyone.
■ Cliff Williams, Global Corporate Maintenance
Manager, ERCO Worldwide, Yulee, FL (peopleandprocesses.com), discusses using his C.R.E.A.T.E
tool to achieve maintenance excellence. CREATE
represents communicate, respect, educate,
authority, trust, and exercise.
■ Larry Bryant, Director of Reliability, Domtar
Paper Co., Hawesville, KY (domtar.com),
discussed his company's journey to reliability success by involving alignment,
training, empowerment, employee pride,
and management support.

MAINTENANCE TECHNOLOGY

■

Mary Jane Van Hoesen, eAM Specialist, Alcoa,
Ferndale, WA (alcoa.com), discussed the
company's extensive mobile work-order creation,
monitoring, and analysis program, an effort she
is spearheading and that is rapidly becoming a
difference maker for her organization.
■ Harvey Henkel, Supervisor Condition Monitoring,
TransAlta, Duffield, Alberta, Canada (transalta.
com), talked about a journey his team initiated
in 2000, focused on building and maintaining a
world-class condition-monitoring team. Their
efforts, particularly in extending average motor life
span, have been a great success. Most important,
Henkel discussed what they've done to maintain
the program.
■ Brian Ricker, Director of Operations, Martin
Operating Partnership, Smackover, AR
(martinmlp.com), inherited a quality CMMS, saw
the potential, and leveraged it as the backbone of
a powerful predictive-maintenance program that
has put the company on the right side of reliability
and aligned with operational priorities.
■ Steven Lallensack, Director of Operations, Empire
Level, Mukwonago, WI (empirelevel.com), and
his team are a tremendous success story of moving
from an aged company that received minimal
investment to a modern, automated operation that
is experiencing rapid growth. Empire's approach
kept people employed, improved reliability, and
changed the company's overall culture. Empire
Level was MT's Plant Profile story in Nov. 2016.
■ George Parada, CMRP & Maintenance & Reliability Leader, Cargill Salt, Newark, CA (cargill.
com), had to deal with the skills gap that affects so
many companies. Their solution was to implement the Salt ROME (Reliability, Operations,
Maintenance, Engineering) Ops Boot Camp. New
employees must complete the camp to ensure that
they have the knowledge they need to be effective
in Cargill facilities. To date, camp graduates have
been instrumental in a 3% to 5% improvement in
productivity.

chatting with these speakers and am confident the
conversations will provide ideas and inspiration that
help you move your operation forward. MT
