The 16th Maintenance Forum, focused this year on Digital Transformation and Reliability 4.0, successfully took place on November 8 & 9 at the OTE Academy in Athens. This annual conference marks a significant opportunity for professionals in the maintenance field to convene, exchange knowledge, and delve into discussions regarding the latest trends and challenges associated with Maintenance practices.
Atlantis Engineering was there, as always, as an organizing company along with the Hellenic Maintenance Society and I4byDesign.
This year, Atlantis Engineering held a fully interactive workshop, in collaboration with the Arpedon company. The workshop was designed to comprehensively illustrate the application of Predictive Maintenance, guiding participants through each stage from theory to practical implementation.
George Efframidis, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of Atlantis Engineering and Thanasis Naskos, Chief Innovation Officer (CIO) of Atlantis Engineering, jointly presented a practical Predictive Maintenance game. In this engaging session, participants had the opportunity to work together as a team, actively contributing to the creation of a roadmap for designing and executing Predictive Maintenance strategies. This interactive approach likely provided a dynamic and hands-on experience to the participants, fostering a deeper understanding of the principles and application of Predictive Maintenance.
More specifically, throughout the workshop, they had the opportunity to evaluate real-time data from a specific air compressor, receiving SMS and e-mail notifications from the Predictive Maintenance Platform – Sibyl, to make critical decisions for the early diagnosis and prediction of failures, and finally to register tasks in the Asset & Maintenance Management System – AIMMS, to solve them.
Why Predictive Maintenance?
Furthermore, George Efframidis delivered a pitch that outlined a guide for the implementation of a Predictive Maintenance Strategy. This guide comprised seven steps, drawing a parallel to the seven days of creation of the world. The analogy likely emphasized the transformative journey from a state of Chaos to the Genesis of Predictive Maintenance, providing a conceptual framework for understanding and implementing this strategic approach. delivered a pitch that outlined a guide for the implementation of a Predictive Maintenance Strategy.

Valuable contributions and insights shared at the conference, including Paul Daugalis‘ speech on “Evaluating Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM) Influence on Future Production Deliverability.”
Additionaly, the presentation by Jan Stoker, SSAMM, Sr., Lecturer/Visiting Fellow at Cranfield University, on the transition to Industry 5.0 and the influence of A.I. in Asset & Maintenance Management with a sustainable human-centered approach was noteworthy.
Paul Whiting, Managing Director of Delta-Xero, showed practical solutions and technologies for extending equipment life and reducing maintenance costs through the adoption of sustainable machine lubrication methods.
The Maintenance Forum is renewing its appointment for next year! Stay tuned!
