Road to RxM Track

presented by Plant Services

Prescriptive maintenance—often referenced as RxM—relies on advanced analytics to not only predict machines’ maintenance needs and recommend corrective courses, but also implement these changes autonomously.

It’s heady stuff–and is already being practiced by facilities that are at the forefront of digital transformation. These progressive manufacturing and power plants, mining operations, and utilities are already reaping the rewards of increased uptime and reduced expenditures.

Join us this year for the first-ever “Road to RxM” program, a dedicated track designed for MRO professionals to learn from their peers how digital maintenance and reliability approaches can benefit their facilities. This track is developed and moderated by the editors of Plant Services, a Putman publication that focuses on smart solutions for maintenance and reliability.
