LOUISVILLE, KY – June 10, 2021 – Net Results Group (NRG), celebrating its 25th anniversary specializing in MRO master data management, and CertainTeed®, a subsidiary of Saint-Gobain and a leading North American manufacturer of building materials, today announced that their collaboration on a presentation entitled, “The Foundation for Continuous Manufacturing Improvement — Quality MRO Material Data and Meta Data” has been selected by the Society for Maintenance and Reliability Professionals’ (SMRP) steering committee for presentation at their upcoming Annual Conference.

“MRO data analytics is now established as a primary mechanism for gaining mission-critical insight in many industries and can’t be overstated in the current economic condition,” said Lance Gilbert, Managing Partner, Net Results Group. “The value of historical process data is proven in nearly every process-based industry, yet many business leaders are uncertain how data science can maximize operational productivity and profitability. We will discuss the usefulness of historical process data and illustrate how to extract full value with MRO data mining and visualization.”

“I look forward to sharing the bottom-line benefits our firm achieved through cleansing, standardizing and enriching our data,” commented Ben Borgmeyer, Manager, Corporate Strategic Capital, CertainTeed. “After applying SOPs to ensure data quality sustainability and scalability it helped identify obsolete MRO materials and duplicate MRO items, and fostered effective data governance throughout the organization.”

The conference is debuting a hybrid model for attendees to join in person in St. Louis, MO or virtually.  The presenters’ abstract will be published on the meeting’s website and their presentation is scheduled for Tuesday, October 26, 2021 at 2:45 pm in Room 104/105.  Both Gilbert and Borgmeyer welcome and encourage fellow maintenance, reliability and physical asset management professionals from across the globe to join them.
