[Register; Book Accommodation; Sponsor Students]

9th International Conference
on CANDU® Maintenance
Metro Toronto Convention Centre
4-6 December, 2011

“Industry Performance – Getting a Grip”
- was the promised focus – it’s happening -

CMC 2011 Adopts a Dual Focus for Its Plenary
and Technical Programs;
1. Industry Performance
and 2. Technical Excellence;

Focus #1 - ‘Special Sessions on Industry Performance’
CMC 2011 is configured in four Half-day Sessions [A thru D], each opening with a breakfast or luncheon Plenary Session. These four opening Plenary Sessions [and the subsequent ‘Special Sessions on Industry Performance’], focus on essential ‘Ways-of-Working Improvements’ - come prepared for some interesting dialogue.

These Sessions [A, C, D respectively] address the three distinct Businesses Types of; i) ‘Tightly-Managed Outage Services’; ii) ‘Refurbs Large and Small’; iii) ‘New Build 2011-Style’.

Session B addresses ‘Ways of Working Improvements’– focusing specifically on the essential ‘tools’ and ‘competencies’ needed to improve performance going forward [we of this conference feel that such ways-of-working issues are at the root of recent performance deficits].

Focus #2 – Technical Excellence Sessions
Technical Excellence Sessions run separately/ parallel to the Special Sessions. These capture research, expertise, and practice technologies - the foundation of all Service/ Operational Support
