Port Harcourt Maintenance Summit
We are pleased to invite you to the Maiden edition of the Port Harcourt Maintenance Summit.
Theme: Built to Last: Secrets to Extending Asset Life
Date: 20 – 21 April 2017
Venue: The Atrium, Stadium Road, Port Harcourt City, Nigeria.
The Case for PHMS
Technological advancement is the backbone for the successful development and advancement of any society. Engineers are the primary group saddled with the task of fostering technological advancement. Hence the development of any society would be proportional to the viability of its engineering population. The capacity of the engineering population to perform in the highest levels is dependent on adequate knowledge and training engineers at different levels receive. Engineering professionals in developing countries like Nigeria find it difficult to access the right kind education to help them function optimally. Issues ranging from inadequate and competent human resources, funding research and technological development projects and lack of relevant learning infrastructure are but a few challenges confronting the Nigerian engineer. With this climate most our professionals are below par when compared to their counterparts in the developed world.
We are responding to these needs by organizing The Port Harcourt Maintenance Summit is an Educational Project targeting Engineering professionals at all levels including undergraduate engineering students. The Objective is to bridge the widening skills gap in the engineering profession in Nigeria by providing an alternative learning environment where professionals can meet face to face with top experts and influencers, Connect with peers (Networking), Learn from other professionals going through similar challenges like they are, in a new space and environment away from the rigors of work. This we believe will create avenues for collaboration and Growth in Nigeria. For young graduates and undergrads, we are looking to equip them with the right skills to help them thrive when they get into the industry.
About PHMS 2017 Theme: Built to Last: Secrets to Extending Asset Life
The theme for this event is geared toward educating the engineering population and organizations on creative ways of sustaining, improving or extending asset life to remain competitive in these economically challenging times. This would be achieved through interaction between stakeholders and experts from world class organisations sharing experiences, case studies and technological solutions with our audience that can be leveraged. This event would be facilitated by seasoned professionals from major industries across Nigeria.
The Summit deliberations would be on the following themes:
- Role of Maintenance in Extending Asset Life
- Basics of Reliability Engineering
- Asset Management Standards & Reliability (ISO 55000)
- Continuous Improvement
- Maintenance Management
- Supporting Technologies (CMMS, EAM, Predictive tools, IoT, Machine Intelligence)
- Leadership and Culture
- Risk vs Reliability
- Industry Best Practices.
This event has been designed as a veritable platform to converge the topmost engineering professionals in the country, captains of major industries, engineering organizations, vendors and the entire engineering community in the Niger Delta at a spot for the purpose of addressing topical issues affecting the growth and performance of industries in Nigeria as well as an avenue for cross-pollination of ideas, transfer of Knowledge and technology. This we believe is a viable recipe for the growth of individual professionals, society, and the country at large. Some of the features of this year’s event include:
- Quality Keynote and presentations by Engineering experts and Captains of industries
- Panel Sessions
- Networking and Exhibition
This event is proposed to be at no cost to attendees. Our Objective is to impact 1000 engineering professionals and students at this maiden event.
