LinkedIn APM Forums Experience Rapid Growth
Last month Meridium launched a number of new online forums for knowledge sharing and product input. Just three weeks later, using LinkedIn, over 100 asset performance management (APM) professionals have shared their perspectives on topics that include ISO standardization for APM, strategies for increasing asset reliability, techniques used for making failure information more easily processed and analyzed, and opinions on why they believe APM initiatives like Six Sigma fail to yield the desired results.
Meridium APM Community Forum
The APM Community, open to all asset performance management professionals, offers diverse and lively conversation. LinkedIn participants of APM Community represent a varied group of professionals including academics, industry analysts, and solution providers like SAP and Emerson. However, the most important contributions come from the shared experience and expertise of APM first responders - the operations, maintenance, and reliability professionals of our on-line community. When a community becomes a wellspring of discussion that comes from practitioners in the field, a certain level of genuine exchange is achieved. APM Community LinkedIn discussions are not product or vendor-centric, and offer a genuine, open, and objective exchange - a characteristic which will continue to be preserved.
We invite all of you to join the conversation. Feel free to post a discussion, a comment on an existing discussion, or post news items. Come and meet and share your experiences and expertise with other APM professionals throughout the world.Join the APM Community on LinkedIn here.
Meridium Focus Groups
For Meridium users, LinkedIn discussion groups have also been formed for: APM Core, Mechanical Integrity, Strategy & Risk Management, as well as SIS & Instrumentation Management. These groups are exclusively for Meridium's user community and provide a direct connection to Meridium's Product Managers, subject matter experts and development teams for the purpose of knowledge sharing, and feedback on Meridium software. As product roadmaps and enhancements are being discussed, Meridium seeks this valuable customer input, and is using these LinkedIn groups to provide a collaborative, knowledge-sharing culture where our users can learn, problem solve, and achieve maximum value from their Meridium investment.
Meridium users can join the Meridium Product Focus Groups on LinkedIn here.
Meridium Focus Groups will meet live on Monday, April 12, at Meridium Conference 2010. Make plans now to attend as part of your complete Meridium Conference experience!
