The conference "Smart Maintenance and Repairs" gathered more than 60 representatives of enterprises of various industries of Russia, who shared a successful experience of improving the processes of asset maintenance and repair. This event was a platform for live exchange of knowledge between experts with broad experience in various aspects of improving maintenance and repair – from techniques to repair certain types of equipment, to strategies for maintenance of large industrial enterprises. Each of the conference participants had the opportunity to get an idea about the experience of colleagues and share their experience and development plans for the future. From the outset, the conference developed a warm and friendly atmosphere of openness and a focus on results.

Daniel, having long experience in implementation of reliability and risk management at the largest petrochemical company in Brazil, was given practical examples to show the feasibility and effectiveness of asset management development in this direction. In the roundtable organized by Maintex "Usage of asset reliability and risk management tools – from theory to practice", participants discussed the most relevant topics - particularly implementation of management techniques for reliability and risk management at the enterprises of the Russian Federation.

"Not all of the issues that we raised have received unconditional support and understanding. But we were able to give examples from our own experience and experience of Meridium proving the propriety of those changes on enterprise, which entails the implementation of techniques such as RCM, RCA, FMEA, RBI.
