The Houston Chapter of The Society for Maintenance and Reliability Professionals is hosting the annual Maintenance and Reliability Symposium focused on delivering relevant education in the following areas: Business Management; Manufacturing Process Reliability; Equipment Reliability; People Skills and Work Management.
Meridium is proud to be the exclusive Platinum Sponsor of this event. While at the conference, please be sure to attend "Solving the Data Quality Problem through Competitive Benchmarking" presented by Kevin Bauman (The Dow Chemical Company) and Paul Casto (Meridium).
We've come to live with the notion that "poor data will be with us always." It's a problem that everyone has, so it tends to be accepted and ignored. But poor data quality is neither acceptable nor inevitable. Data is the lifeblood of an organization and bad data leads to poor management decisions. The same piece of data is used multiple times for multiple purposes. The same asset data may be used to drive a maintenance strategy, redesign a system, or make a procurement decision. Further, the asset data may be aggregated and play a key role in helping executives make site level comparisons regarding operational performance or risk assessments. Given the multiple touch-points and purposes of data, it is absolutely imperative that we not only have programs in place to continuously improve the quality of our data, but that we address the organizational barriers that have made this a persistent problem.
This presentation will explore this path to cure by:
- Making the case for data quality
- Exploring the primary human cause of poor data quality
- Leveraging the natural motivations that will drive improvements
- Setting up metrics that are useful at every organizational level
- Using internal and external benchmarking as a way to kindle the competitive spirit and drive improvement programs.
