The workshop will also review how to manage spares and materials utilization optimization analytics to provide the right materials, at the right time, at the lowest cost.

"The application of reliability-centered maintenance principles to maintenance performance measures can help organizations develop a cost-effective maintenance strategy that will consistently help them achieve their operational goals. I look forward to discussing maintenance and spares principles with workshop participants to help them improve both the efficiency and effectiveness of their maintenance initiatives."
