In today’s economic climate, there is an increasing emphasis and need to reduce the cost of manufacturing through increased efficiency tools and techniques. Advanced Maintenance is seen as a discipline which has the potential to reduce manufacturing costs, improve equipment reliability and availability and increase product quality.
The University of Sunderland and AMAP have established the North East Maintenance Forum for companies to meet and discuss maintenance improvements in a non competitive forum. The forum is designed to allow like minded organizations to meet and exchange best practice in order to learn from one another’s experience.
The North East Maintenance Forum (NEMF) aims to become the UK’s premier forum for maintenance debate and networking, supporting north east companies to develop innovative solutions and strategies for maintenance.
The aim of the North East Maintenance Forum is:
- To research and share approaches to good maintenance management and to promote and initiate maintenance techniques and processes to reduce operating costs and energy consumption
- To provide direction in the development of a maintenance strategy, from maintenance management, condition based maintenance and training programme development
- To initiate and share the results of scientific and practical work in the maintenance field to all within the forum
The benefits of membership include access to a network of companies within Europe to exchange innovative ideas and maintenance practices, promotion of your business via the NEMF website and priority invitations to attend regular networking events with inspiring talks from industry leaders.
