Designing technical systems that can be affordably maintained throughout their life

In SESSION 2: The importance of designing for technology during the early stages of a project

Designing technical systems that can be affordably maintained throughout their life

Speaker: Nevil Bounds

Nothing is worse than an expensive exhibit with a show stopping “Out Of Order” sign on it or an expected invoice for thousands of pounds worth of projector bulbs ARRIVING 6 months after a project has opened. How can we plan for operational costs? Is there anyone who can do this for us? Is it better to train an in-house team of technicians or take out a service contract?

This session will lead operators and owners through the options for how to look after your system. It will also discuss the reasons why spending a little more on hardware can cut costs later along with the difficulties of budgeting for operational costs when only capital costs are funded.
