Jim Porter, formerly chief engineer and vice president of engineering and operations for DuPont, currently founder and president, Sustainable Operations Solutions, LLC, and member of the National Academy of Engineering, said, “I regard reliability-centered maintenance as a key strategy for those cases in which I’ve helped investigate industrial losses and incidents. It was very clear to me that having a systematic asset performance management approach, such as that provided by Ivara EXP, would have been a very good investment. I’ve said many times, investments by manufacturers in safety are wise financial decisions. As I’m now familiar with Bentley’s AssetWise offering, I think this is going to be a tremendous and unique enabler for plant operators to proactively improve their safe operations.”
