Why You Should Attend

7th Annual Total Plant Management 2016

The plant on the last day of its operation wants the same as its first day. What you need is a ‘smarter business and operational strategy’ that will get you the best bang for your buck, across the different teams. Management of plants and assets is accompanied with countless and often competing demands of priorities, skills and resources. Initiatives like the Lean Concept and Six Sigma have been in existence for a period of time, but failure in deployment is one of the key problems in all these strategies. What the Australian industry needs now is authentic leadership as against assumed leadership that can ensure continuous improvement and lead the business on the way to success!

The Marcus Evans 7th Annual Total Plant Management conference this year with the input of a line-up of experienced speakers will bring answers to some of your most pressing challenges - be it data, asset or resource management, it all falls under one umbrella. Thoroughly researched with senior management professionals across various disciplines of manufacturing, operations, production and engineering, this event guarantees you a deep dive into strategic and technical issues of plant management.
