Sec­re­tary Main­te­nance En­gi­neer­ing So­ci­ety New Zealand

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - CONTENTS -

The Main­te­nance En­gi­neer­ing So­ci­ety of New Zealand’s (MESNZ) role of sup­port­ing main­te­nance en­gi­neers na­tion­ally af­fords a lofty view of the evo­lu­tion of man­u­fac­tur­ing across the coun­try and the role of main­te­nance en­gi­neers in con­stantly de­vel­op­ing and re­fin­ing how to pro­vide ef­fec­tive plant re­li­a­bil­ity in the real world.

A keen theme run­ning through the so­ci­ety’s veins is the need to match 2014 pro­duc­tion ca­pa­bil­ity with 2014 main­te­nance man­age­ment, or in good belts and braces terms, “Lift­ing the Game”.

Con­fer­ences are the ideal fo­rum for in­spir­ing en­gi­neers want­ing to lift their game, show­cas­ing the lat­est so­lu­tions, shar­ing ex­pe­ri­ences and con­sol­i­dat­ing col­lec­tive thoughts or di­rec­tion.

The so­ci­ety’s an­nual SKF Na­tional Main­te­nance En­gi­neer­ing Con­fer­ence has de­vel­oped an en­vi­ron­ment that helps en­gi­neers gain in­for­ma­tion and in­spi­ra­tion through a dis­tinct pro­gramme of pre­sen­ta­tions, ex­hi­bi­tion and net­work­ing. Or­gan­ised by in­dus­try prac­ti­tion­ers who un­der­stand trades based en­gi­neers, the con­fer­ence recog­nises that main­te­nance en­gi­neers are so­lu­tion providers by na­ture, and love noth­ing more than tap­ping into po­ten­tial so­lu­tions for fu­ture prob­lems.

The con­fer­ence is pre­sented by the Main­te­nance En­gi­neer­ing So­ci­ety of New Zealand (MESNZ), a tech­ni­cal in­ter­est group of IPENZ. Rep­re­sent­ing main­te­nance en­gi­neers na­tion­ally, the so­ci­ety is a strong ad­vo­cate of re­mov­ing cost bar­ri­ers to par­tic­i­pa­tion.

Tick­ets for the Novem­ber 2014 Hamil­ton event are $ 680+GST per per­son with dis­count op­por­tu­ni­ties down to $440+GST per per­son, eas­ily the cheap­est rate for any two­day plus event in New Zealand.

Reg­is­tra­tion forms are at www.mesnz.org.nz/nmec/ or call event man­ager Leanne Powley on (09) 296 1333.
