ASB will be hosting a "How to get out of run to failure" workshop October 25 and 26, 2017, at the Crown Plaza Chicago, in Northbrook, IL. The workshop will be instructed by Rowdy Brixey, president, Brixey Engineering, Inc. The cost is $1,295 for ASB members, and $1,795 for non-ASB members.

The simplest maintenance strategy is to execute run to failure maintenance (also known as "run to fail"). In this strategy, assets are deliberately allowed to operate until they break down, at which point reactive maintenance is performed.

This is not a good strategy for food plants; this workshop is designed to provide tactical ideas on how to get out of this mode of operation. Once stabilized, plants can begin focusing on a preventative maintenance approach.

Learning Objectives:

  • At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to build a tactical action plan to address unplanned downtime and understand what leads to reactive maintenance and tactical strategies for getting out of run to fail.
  • Employers should expect that attendees will learn actionable techniques that when properly executed will reduce waste and downtime from a reactive maintenance culture.

Who Should Attend: Plant Managers, Plant Engineers, Maintenance Managers, Operations Managers, Maintenance Supervisors and Planner/Schedulers.
