North East Maintenance Forum logo
The North East Maintenance Forum (NEMF) aims to become the UK’s premier forum for maintenance debate and networking, supporting north east companies to develop innovative solutions and strategies for maintenance.
The aim of the North East Maintenance Forum is:

  • To research and share approaches to good maintenance management and to promote and initiate maintenance techniques and processes to reduce operating costs and energy consumption
  • To provide direction in the development of a maintenance strategy, from maintenance management, condition based maintenance and training programme development
  • To initiate and share the results of scientific and practical work in the maintenance field to all within the forum

The benefits of membership include access to a network of companies within Europe to exchange innovative ideas and maintenance practices, promotion of your business via the NEMF website and priority invitations to attend regular networking events with inspiring talks from industry leaders.

The North East Productivity Forum
The University of Sunderland and AMAP have established a forum for manufacturing companies to meet and discuss productivity improvements in a non competitive forum.  The forum is designed to allow like minded organisations to meet and exchange best practice in order to learn from one another’s experience.

Maintenance strategy development within the food and drink industry: A case study approach
Dr David Baglee, Reader, Faculty of Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing, University of Sunderland, UK
Time: 1035 - 1105 Location: G29
The presentation will describe the development and implementation, through case study analysis, of a new maintenance strategy using predictive maintenance strategies and an information system designed to
support staff training. This project has resulted in the transfer of modern maintenance technologies, already successfully implemented in other industry sectors to the food processing sector. This has been achieved
through the transfer and implementation of structured maintenance methods and the introduction of monitoring tools for processing equipment.
Significant benefits include the ability to predict equipment failure, the development of best practice and a significant increase in productivity will be highlighted.
The presentation will conclude with an overview of the new an innovative tools and techniques available to support maintenance strategy development.

The London Maintenance Forum - June 13th 2017

The London Maintenance Forum, led by HSSMI, is organised to provide a place for discussion, debate and networking around innovative maintenance techniques, challenges and solutions.
Following the successful establishment of the North East Maintenance Forum, the London based event aims to follow precedent in providing an arena to research and share approaches to good maintenance management and to promote and initiate maintenance techniques and processes to reduce operating costs and energy consumption.
The first London Maintenance Forum will be an intimate gathering of attendees from a variety of sectors and will include academia, SMEs and global organisations.

Maintec 2017

Maintec will return to the Birmingham, NEC 21-23 March 2017 and AMAP’s Dr David Baglee will be discussing Asset Management tools and techniques.  Now under new ownership the 2017 event promises exciting development, content and new features.

New for 2017, through two new theatres, Maintec Dialogue and Maintec Summit, the seminar programme will address the most important challenges facing maintenance engineering today.

Topics have been carefully selected during extensive research for the recently commissioned White Paper which looks in detail at The Future of Maintenance Engineering with important contribution from EEF, IMechE, IET, Gambica, UKLA – all who will be speaking live at the event.

The World Congress on Engineering Asset Management has been held annually since 2006 with the objective being to bring together academics, practitioners and scientists from all around the world to promote research, development and application in the field of Engineering Asset Management;  to strengthen the link between academic researchers and industrial practitioners in the field and to showcase the state of the art systems and technology in Engineering Asset Management.

Maintenance Performance Measurement & Management 2016

Dr David Baglee will be Co Chair at the forthcoming MPMM2016 at Lulea in Sweden on the 28th November 2016.

InCoME 2016
The University of Manchester has a strong reputation of delivering industry focused professional development courses, consultancy and applied research in plant maintenance and reliability over the past 20 years.
With the aim of providing a common platform by which professionals, engineers, practitioners and researchers working in the field of plant maintenance and reliability can share their experiences, we are holding the first International Conference on Maintenance Engineering. 

Plant & Asset Management 2016
Industry spends huge sums of money maintaining its plant, machinery and building assets and, because of constantly increasing business and financial pressures, there is an ongoing need to achieve the maximum performance from those assets.  Plant & Asset Management is the UK’s premier event for plant, asset, maintenance and works management engineers and directors.  The exhibition, and free seminars, takes place at the NEC, Birmingham, from 12-14 April 2016.

EuroMaintenance 2016
The format continuous along the lines of the well-known EuroMaintenance concept, with focus on the training of the technical-industrial world through 6 dedicated masterclasses about asset management and reliability.

The Maintenance Performance Measurement and Management series of conferences provide an excellent opportunity for engineers from all areas of academia and industry to present and discuss the latest practices and technologies for managing and monitoring the performance of maintenance strategies.

AAEE 2015

Work of AMAP and our Forums receives international attention.

More than 200 engineering academics and industry experts from across the globe will descend on Geelong and the Surf Coast next week when Deakin University hosts the discipline’s largest annual education conference. Read More >>

Our very own Dr David Baglee was invited to present a keynote of the work of AMAP and our models for industrial engagement, which include the work of our forums. Nice to see the work is attracting international attention at such a high profile event. Thanks to all our AMAP and Forum partners for helping us build this reputation.

Dave will come back armed with some interesting knowledge and learning of best practice that we can feed into our ongoing activity remapping our future teaching and learning within engineering and help us shape the future provision and curriculum.
