Door Open: 7:00 P.M.                                   Presentation: 7:30 P.M. 

Location: Islington Golf Club, 45 Riverbank Drive, Etobicoke, M9B 5B8.


Today, physical asset management is a high-tech field with software able to analyze condition-monitoring data and suggest to companies when to intervene with a maintenance action such as repair or replacement. For over 30 years, Professor Andrew Jardine has been working on optimizing the condition-based maintenance (CBM) decision by creating software able to determine both the risk of failure and the economic consequences of failure. The talk will focus on the development and applications of mathematical/statistical tools to balance risk and economic consequences of equipment failure.
