APM – The Key to Unlocking Business Value from Predictive Technologies

Oil and gas companies have made significant investments in the latest predictive and online monitoring technologies to identify and detect failures early. Unfortunately, many companies struggle to leverage these as an integrated component to their larger maintenance and reliability program. In turn, teams struggle to sustain consistent ROI from these tools.

Join BHGE for our panel discussion with former maintenance & reliability executives to see how they successfully adopted these technologies as a component of a holistic Asset Performance Management program. They will share insights on how they engrained these technologies within their teams to drive a holistic strategy on to meet their organizational objectives.
