2:55 PM - 3:15 PM Supporting Customers In A Gray World When Company Policy Is Black And White

Rhonda Monks, Field Service Director, CNH Industrial
Field service exists to protect the integrity of your brand in the eyes of your customer. Responsible businesses set up policies to protect themselves from too much financial exposure when things go wrong, such as a limited warranty for the product they sell. This warranty is the black and white world of company policy. However, not all situations fall neatly into the box of company policy. Session takeaways include and discussion includes how does 1 handle the gray world that is outside the black and white company policy and how do you protect the integrity of your brand and satisfy your customer when things don’t go according to the rule book?

3:40 PM - 4:00 PM Optimizing Field Maintenance Schedules

Vasiliy Krivtsov, Senior Staff Technical Specialist, Ford Motor Company
Complex technical systems, over their design life, are subject to preventive maintenance. Viewed as a field service activity, preventive maintenance is necessary to meet a system's reliability and availability (readiness) requirements. The question is what should be the optimal schedule of such preventive maintenance actions? Optimal in the sense that high frequency of these actions increases the cost of maintaining the system's operation but reduces the cost due to the system's downtime, while low frequency – decreases the cost system's operation but increases the cost of downtime. This presentation reviews mathematical (statistical) models that are used for preventive maintenance optimization and illustrated by case studies from the Vasiliy’s corporate experience.

3:40 PM - 4:00 PM Is There An App For That?

Allan VanDamme, Director of Distribution Technology and Operations, London Hydro Inc.
As mobile computing becomes more entrenched in our everyday activities, the growth of smart applications has been prolific. It is estimated that there are currently 1,500,000 active applications available for the IPhone and the inventory is growing at a rate of about 138 per day. Given the evolution of the population towards an app-centric mindset, London Hydro recognized that some of the field services could be delivered using the app platform. To that end apps have been deployed in the areas of Health and Safety, project cost management, defective equipment reporting and tracking and facility entry control.
