The 2015 conference will provide the very latest insights, trends and best practices—direct from leading industry experts—for process plants seeking to improve calibration quality, safety, accuracy, profitability, lower costs and optimize production.

A deeply focused conference agenda will explore critical challenges and how best to solve them through innovations in calibration technology, and new strategies, products and techniques in implementation of calibration process changes, optimizing quality measurement and improving safety.

Guided by two tracks, strategic and technical, attendees will have the opportunity to choose either, or mix and match sessions based on their interests. (Note that conference registrants can earn up to 8 PDHs by attending educational sessions.)

The strategic track is formulated to help executives discover solutions to achive operational excellence. Some example topics include planning for the future considering important market factors, such as the shortage of skilled workers combined with continually evolving technology, and how to maximize process efficiencies. It will cover additional fundamental issues of importance, such as:

The Perfect Storm: Automation and the Future of Smart Manufacturing
Maximizing productivity and quality using an integration-based approach
Core elements of a compliant calibration program
Why continuing education is vital to sustainability and success
Six key steps for an effective process change
How to implement a calibration process change

The technical track is designed to equip engineers and technicians with strategies for improving daily maintenance processes and tasks. Tactics for strengthening accuracy and quality, while lowering the risk of human errors will be taught by industry experts. Techniques for history trending of instruments to provide traceability and determination of calibration intervals will be discussed. In addition, the track will cover key topics of importance, such as:

Loop calibration strategies
Configuring and calibrating smart instruments
Advanced techniques leveraging calibration management software
Tips and techniques for automating calibration processes
Hands-on workshop
