The 2016 DOD Maintenance Symposium is challenging you to summit your maintenance related innovations. An evaluation board comprised of maintenance subject matter experts will select six candidates to participate in the challenge during the 2016 DOD Maintenance Symposium, December 5-8, 2016.
Revolutionary or Evolutionary; showcase your maintenance innovation that offers a real solution and value to the DOD Maintenance Community to help them meet the needs and expectations for the future. Demonstrate how to keep maintenance ahead of the curve in processes, testing, validation, finance, methodology, products, services, and/or workflows to the Symposium audience on Monday, December 5, 2016 in Phoenix.
THE CHALLENGE IS ON!
Call for Innovations: Maintenance Innovation Challenge Submit Your Innovation Today!
Deadline for Innovations: Wednesday, September 14, 2016
Presentations must be technical in nature — focused on current or potential maintenance operations or management — and strictly avoid commercialism. Each presenter will be allocated exactly 15 minutes, including audience Q&A. The winner will be selected through vote by the JGDM and MESC Senior Leaders and recognized at the Symposium Plenary Session.
Abstracts (300-500 words) for the 2016 Maintenance Innovation Challenge will be accepted through Wednesday, September 14, 2016. Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of the premier military and commercial maintenance event of this year!
