Event summary:
The success of our first PALM Forum last March has demonstrated the growing attention that plant operators are giving to asset management. As a result, plant asset lifecycle management is quickly growing into one of the most effective profit-generating tools in manufacturing and equipment intensive enterprises.

While more and more companies continue to test the waters of asset lifecycle management as a holistic endeavour, industry leaders forge ahead, generating record standards in plant efficiency and pushing information systems providers to generate more data in a real-time, putting more control back in the hands of decision makers.

We plan to build on the success of the first conference with an even more exciting panel of speakers presenting on challenges and demands that operators are dealing with now. Our event offers a complete package, providing a meeting place for the forward-thinking elite among maintenance experts and operators, as well as a well-rounded discussion of the collected insight and experience in the asset lifecycle management field.

Through case studies, interactive roundtable and panel discussions, and workshops, the 2nd Annual PALM Forum will provide you with the understanding and the tools to initiate or expand your company’s asset management strategy.
