Asset Management

ASSET PERFORMANCE

Asset Management involves the balancing of costs, opportunities and risks against the desired performance of assets, to achieve the organizational objectives. Thus asset performance is a combination of stability, costs, capacity utilisation, throughput, organizational performance, maintenance effectiveness and value chain optimisation. We help you plan and monitor all of these in such a way that your goals and objectives are met.

OPEX OPTIMISATION

We are focused at identifying ways/tools to improve production and maintenance cost predictability.

Following thorough analysis of optional actions to optimise /reduce OPEX, we discuss options with our client and ultimately prepare fit-for-purpose recommendations for immediate implementation.

With thorough analysis, there is usually room for optimisation, typically resulting in cost savings and / or performance improvements. However cost savings must always be demonstrated to not compromise HSE and reliability. Employing our powerful methodology help you optimising your operational challenges.

PRODUCTION RELIABILITY AND EFFICIENCY

Our experience combined with external research has highlighted that asset reliability tends to vary significantly across shifts and crews. Thus we help asset operators design and implement processes, procedures and systems aimed at reducing these variations through alignment of Production Upset Management behaviours and active benchmarking and training between individual crews. In fact, streamlining how you, on an asset level, react to alarms, variations and production upsets has been proven to increase throughput significantly, leading to cash flow improvements.

MAINTENANCE OPTIMISATION

Monitoring and maintaining your equipment is becoming increasingly more important as production complexity is rising. Most asset operators realise this and are working hard to ensure maintenance efficiency. However, many focus primarily on implementing RCM and CBM based applications and less on coordination, collaboration, data sharing between asset departments, support organisations and contractors. Working from a structured approach to achieve true integration through optimising planning and communication processes and harnessing operator knowledge has enabled us to help organizations achieve significant results.

SUPPLY CHAIN OPTIMISATION

Supply Chain performance and costs are often not given the focus they deserve. In fact, optimising your Supply Chain can generate substantial benefits when a systematic approach to performance enhancement and capacity utilisation is applied.

INTEGRATED OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT

True integration of management systems across the asset value chain is increasingly becoming a priority for asset based business across the world. However, most ambitious efforts have failed, mainly due to insufficient focus on the change management aspects of such initiatives. We have developed a proven methodology to support Integrated Operations initiatives involving all stakeholders and processes along the value chain from Strategic Forecasting over Work Permit Systems and Metering to Financial Reporting.
