A day on an equal footing

No platitudes, no suits - just topics and people who are interesting and interested! It's about technology, small and large projects, experiences from day-to-day work, new ideas and everything else that moves maintenance staff. The presentations in the morning and afternoon will highlight various technical and organisational - but always maintenance-related - aspects of this topic and in this way aim to provide impetus, new ideas and a basis for further discussions among the participants.

Our topic

The motto of the "2. KSK-Instandhaltertag" in May 2024 is "Small details, big impact". This is about a central point in maintenance: many challenges and problems, but also changes and optimisations often happen in the day-to-day work of the plant manager, operating engineer or maintenance technician in small details that are not directly visible. However, the impact on the entire operating process is often immense. We therefore believe that it is extremely worthwhile to pay attention to the supposedly small details.
