There’s no better time to practice tackling than the fall, and there’s no better forum to tackle plant floor issues than the fall series of Webcasts beginning this month.

Two new PLANT ENGINEERING Webcasts scheduled for October will focus on issues that plant managers face each day %%MDASSML%%

Identifying ways to save energy on the plant floor is a pivotal issue, and the Oct. 18 Webcast on motor efficiency promises to lay out the business and maintenance case for effective motor replacement and operation. The Webcast will be moderated by editor Bob Vavra and is sponsored by NSK.

On Oct. 25 , the focus turns to enterprise asset management . Brian Dunks, senior product manager for Lawson Software, will discuss the emerging trends and opportunities for EAM in an exclusive Webcast.

Improved asset management efficiency, based on new integrated models being driven through industry standards, can bring substantial direct cost savings as well as indirect savings through lower insurance premiums and improved relationships with regulators or auditors, as a consequence of reducing risk.

Dunks will focus on how an integrated EAM systems can reduce risk and enhance performance on the plant floor.
