The $10M Inspection:

The Value of inspecting the right things at the right time.
  • Wesley J. Oliphant, P.E., F.SEI, F.ASCE
  • Michael D. Miller P.E., P.Eng., F.ASCE, F.SEI
  • Kenneth L. Sharpless, P.E., F.ASCE, F.SEI

What to Expect:
Exo’s key engineers and inspection professionals share first person accounts where asset inspection in the field, in the plant, or at the end of a warranty was a game changer. In one case study you will hear the story of an inspection that was worth tens of millions of dollars (in the utility’s favor).

Timing: 30 minute presentation, 15 minutes of Q & A

We take a look at unique inspection disciplines, how they work, and how they make you more valuable to your organization. Including:

  • In-Plant Inspection
  • In-Field Inspection
  • End-of-Warranty Inspection
  • Failure Inspection – Root Cause Analysis
  • Quality Assurance Consultation
  • Specifications

Failing Forward, Part 1:

Exploring why structures fail, what to do when they fail, and how to avoid failure on your watch (and dime).
  • Wesley J. Oliphant, P.E., F.SEI, F.ASCE
  • Michael D. Miller P.E., P.Eng., F.ASCE, F.SEI
  • Kenneth L. Sharpless, P.E., F.ASCE, F.SEI

What to Expect:
Join our team of experts to explore lessons learned from 100 years of combined experience analyzing the root cause of failures. Expect dozens of asset failure case studies, documentation, photographs, and practical guidance to prevent failures and extend asset life.

Together we will explore:

  • Why structures, poles and towers fail
  • What to do when they fail
  • How to avoid failure on your watch

45 minutes: 30 minute presentation, 15 minutes of Q & A

Wood Innovation:

The new way forward for wood pole services
  • Garrett “Big G” Ehler, Exo’s VP of Wood Services and Continuous Improvement
  • Joel Rovang, Exo’s Wood Pole Subject Matter Expert

What to Expect:

Wood Pole Services leader and non-destructive testing (NDT) expert Garrett “Big G” Ehler is joined by 30+ year wood services industry leader, Joel Rovang, to discuss how the old way of managing wood pole assets is slow, expensive and often wasteful. Unfortunately, many utilities are unaware that there is a better way. The good news is the future of wood services is here and it is a much more valuable investment for utilities of all sizes.

45 minutes: Expect a 20 minute presentation/conversation and 15+ minute Q & A session to address issues you may be facing managing the health of your wood poles.

The ROI of Integrity:

Building an asset maintenance plan that creates value for your company and confidence in your leadership.
  • Zachary Oliphant, Exo’s Chief Executive Officer

What to Expect:

Nobody really seems to understand just how valuable ( financially and personally ) it is to ensure the integrity of your assets. The future of asset management requires leaders to identify and address aging and decaying assets before they create an expensive and dangerous problem or fail to perform financially. Imagine what it would mean to you and your organization if you had a plan that you believed in, that allowed you to:

  • Predict problems with your assets, before they fail
  • Prioritize your repairs and budget based on risk and needs
  • Preserve your assets and credibility through good stewardship principles
  • Save millions of dollars maintaining- instead of replacing- assets
  • Avoid the frustration of responding to an avoidable failure

45 minutes: Expect a 30 minute presentation and 15+ minute Q & A session to discuss the challenges that are keeping you from the value that investing in the integrity of your infrastructure provides
