Abstract: 
Through an interactive session, Sridhar and Saigopal walk participants through tasks that are required to put in place the important building blocks of Maintenance & Reliability on any new project to maximize value from the assets during their life cycle. While the workshop will be based on the presenters' experience of doing this work over the last 7 years on new projects in the oil sands, the learning can be applied to other various industries as well. Participants will not only learn the extent and depth of coverage of this foundational work, the presenters will also share what they've learned about the point of diminishing returns (where to stop) and the various challenges and pitfalls they have encountered.
