9.00 Workshop 1 - Implementing an oil analysis and lubrication program for cost effective long term reliability

Workshop Leader:
Dr. Sunil Kumar, Laboratory Manager
Geo-Chem Middle East, UAE
The oil analysis & lubrication program is one of the key condition monitoring practices which have given excellent results to organization
in meeting their reliability & maintenance goals.
The workshop will give you in-depth knowledge about the advantages, methods & best practices that will help you implement the same
successfully in your organization.

Who Should Attend: Condition Monitoring Managers

Reliability Head/Managers
Condition Monitoring Engineers/Specialists/Experts
Condition Monitoring Technicians
Reliability Engineers/Specialists/Experts
Maintenance Engineers/Specialists/Managers

10.30 Coffee Break

11.00 Workshop 2 - Experiences with data analytics in condition monitoring: how Big are your data?

Workshop Leader:
Koenraad De Bauw
Chief Technologist Vibrations & Mechanics
Labrolec, Belgium

Why Attend:
For many critical assets, a multidisciplinary condition monitoring approach is required. Centralizing data and measurement results is
however not the unique solution. We need to bring together the expertise behind the data.
An intelligent combination of the information issued by the available condition monitoring techniques, process data and inspection reports
opens many opportunities for improving the capability of early warning of deviating behaviour of your assets.

About The Workshop:

In a first part of this workshop session we will present some experiences with a more global condition monitoring approach, and on how
they did (or did not) contribute to a more reliable operation and an optimization of maintenance. In a second part of the workshop we will
elaborate on some key messages through an interactive Q&A.

Goal of The Workshop:

The goal of this workshop is to identify key success factors and pitfalls for an efficient introduction of data analytics and model-based
techniques in condition monitoring. Many powerful approaches for data mining exist in what is today generally called Big Data analysis,
but we sometimes risk to forget the exact objectives when applying such methods in condition monitoring or asset management. The tools
must be adapted to the job, and not the other way around.
