Reliability vs. Innovation: Introducing Emerging Technologies



Introducing new equipment or technology can reduce cost and improve performance, and often has added cache of innovation. But being an early adopter also has risks when the technology is not fully proven to perform, particularly for mission critical facilities. This session explores how to achieve the benefits of innovation by undertaking additional groundwork to decide if the application is right for you. Investing in rigorous due diligence will help ensure your technology innovations yield years of trouble-free service. Before you embrace the big “I” – Innovation – consider three additional “i’s” as a litmus test for evaluating and mitigating risk.


Learning Objectives:
1. Review a case study of a VRF installation with tangible lessons learned, and ways to avoid similar pitfalls
2. Learn methods to fully investigate proposed technology’s performance elsewhere
3. Learn methods to safeguard systems and performance during installation of new technologies
4. Understand options for test models that help insure success
