Cary Forgeron – General Manager, Bureau Veritas- Oil Analysis April 18, 8:00 am – 8:50 am. Room 136
Many maintenance professionals do not realize how critical database management has become in the information age. This session will help you understand how oil analysis laboratories set up sample databases and what you can do to ensure you get the most out of the data you generate. Discover how to mine data histories to gain more insight beyond a single oil sample result, as well as how to organize and manage your sampling program data to maximize the value and information you are able to extract from it.

Elizabeth Nelson has authored seven books and numerous technical papers on cooling system maintenance issues facing the industry and has trained thousands of maintenance and reliability professionals on the impact coolant analysis and cooling system maintenance can have on overall engine performance. She is a coolant analysis industry veteran with over three decades of experience in Cooling System Predictive Maintenance research and development. Over the course of her career she has managed coolant testing and analysis programs for several U.S. laboratories overseeing production, quality control, testing methodologies and data interpretation.
