Virtual Conference

We all started with rules stemming from our Vibration certification education.  Coding these into software was never a real success.  Now we have more than just rules, we have bigger and more completed data and Machine Learning.  Yet, domain expertise in both vibration analysis and in data science is needed to create success that drives Reliability.  I’ll share my experience in the use of IoT technologies, domain expertise, and evolving a Big Data Analytics platform that serves clients in asset intensive industries.  I’ll share examples of where it did not work, and where it does in both simple and complex environments.

The Society of Machinery Failure Prevention Technology is pleased to offer a virtual conference providing an interchange of technical information for the benefit of owners and operators of mechanical machinery.

The MFPT virtual conference offers an interchange of system design methodology, of machine failure prevention technologies including predictive maintenance, of data management and intelligence, of sensor and failure analysis, and the human elements of machinery operation and maintenance.

The MFPT virtual conference includes live keynotes and pre-recorded topics registrants can view at their leisure.  Full papers will be published and available in our conference proceedings.  Our discussion forum offers the opportunity for communication with MFPT 2020 presenters and members.

Register your interest today and join us live on August 6, 2020. In addition to the live content, you’ll also have on-demand, complimentary access to many recorded presentations with the opportunity for Q&A to have all your talk-specific questions answered. 

We look forward to your participation in MFPT 2020, “Advancing Analytics for Failure Prevention”
