Experienced operations and engineering experts will share how they measure success and maximize equipment utilization, as well as how they use: 

-Machine learning and artificial intelligence to enable predictive maintenance to reduce downtime
-Advanced data analytics to identify patterns and processes that can be tightened up and improved
-A variety of asset management techniques to help improve uptime
