The need to reduce production downtime and keep the machines running used to be Maintenance, Repair & Operations (MRO)  professionals’ number one focus. It still is, but just keeping up is no longer enough. As oil prices and cost of capital are low, MRO and related procurement need to be ready to support an increase in production activity. Doing more with the same or less while staying agile requires a transformation. MRO professionals need to figure out how to implement new technologies in MRO to increase productivity.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss three current focus areas for MRO professionals globally. We’ll zero in on the key challenges in today’s operating environment and discuss the demands they create for MRO procurement:

  • How to reduce production downtime
  • How to support increasing production activity
  • How new technologies such as RFID, robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain and 3D printing can help MRO professionals keep up.  

Who should attendThis webinar is for MRO and procurement professionals who want to keep up with the fast-changing operating environment and want to understand the opportunities that come from leveraging new technology.
