2016 SMRP Conference Round Up with Christopher Mears
This episode of the weekly podcast is focused on the 2016 SMRP conference and is described in detail by one of the Board members of the SMRP itself, the education director Christopher Mears. Society for Maintenance and Reliability Professionals is a shared group where you get many opportunities to learn, experience, and improve your working skills for your own and your organization’s benefit. They have an annual event in October called the SMRP conference where professionals from around gather and get a know-how about the best practices that many good quality CMRPs use in different industries. It is shared event in which many companies exhibit in workshops which technologies they are using right now. What have they come across while dealing with the reliability improvements and what are they up to—not the specific details like confidential designs, documents, and charts. But kind of keynotes that are food for thought if you are keen to make yourself better in the race of reliability professionals. Apart from this yearly event, you can find the webinars of SMRP members on the official site along with the presentations of different professionals that are working in the leading organizations of the field. The exhibitors of this society are very successful at what they do and if you want to start your reliability engineering journey—doesn’t matter if you’re a student, earlier in the career, or an experienced professional—there’s plenty for you to do in the workshops along with a chance to see the best facilities of the city in which the conferences are held.
This year’s conference that was the 24th SMRP Annual Conference, held in Jacksonville Florida, was a remarkable event in the history of maintenance and reliability. The interaction between the exhibitors and the attendees just got to a whole new level and one of the main reasons of so much exposure to the knowledge, equipment information, and excelling in different working practices was the mobile app of the SMRP. You can stay up-to-date with the latest news about the SMRP events by checking this app—see which workshops are close to your job area or what topics interest you the most—hotel arrangements and travel information etc. The best thing about this year’s conference was that even if you didn’t get to attend the conference, see the presenters, and got to use the workshops, you can get all the material on the app which is definitely precious—considering that it came from some of the world’s best technicians, educators, and executives. The networking and educational process of this conference were just amazing as it had more than 50 track sessions, 24 hands-on workshops, and a lot of facility tours.
These incredible sessions definitely add a lot of value to your professional career even if you just listen to the keynotes carefully and just practice those techniques once for a better approach. The next conference that will be held in Kansas City.
