Asset Management and Reliability (AM&R) Process Troubleshooting

Establish value and success through asset management services

Asset Management: An Art and a Science

Asset management is no longer an option, but a necessity for any small, medium or large organization, whose goal is to provide sustainable results over a long period.

It is quite common despite the availability of an Asset Management and Reliability Program, with defined goals, scope, and KPIs, the business interruption exposure or asset failure rate to remain unknown or even to increase. So why it is not working and what can be done?

Understanding Asset Management

Asset management is a very complex “process infrastructure” through which any organization is “driving” to realize value from critical equipment and assets. The art and science of making the right decisions within a facility and optimizing the delivery of value lies at the heart of asset management. This is done through processes designed to make the right decisions and optimize the delivery of value.

Asset Management and Reliability Troubleshooting Concepts

The typical insurance risk-based surveys are primarily focused on limiting their level of asset exposure, while evaluating the severity and risk against critical controls in place and mitigating maintenance programs.

Asset Management and Reliability (AM&R) Process Troubleshooting is a corporate, top-down custom systematic approach for evaluation of the Asset Management system in place, focusing on the processes and the interaction between the parties involved, as well as supporting metrics, organizational design, processes, information systems, and corporate culture for your business.

The process includes evaluation of the risk management program and the balance between the cost opportunity and risk against the desired business goals focused on your production value streams.

Symptoms of a Deficient AM&R Program

  • Asset management procedures not covering the whole asset lifecycle
  • Underdeveloped/underutilized CMMS
  • Poor asset performance and increased asset maintenance cost (KPIs)
  • High site business interruption & property damage exposure
  • Asset contingency plans are focused on product quality and EH&S while excluding business interruption exposure
  • Maintenance driven operation in lieu of operations driven maintenance approach
  • Asset maintenance strategy is predominantly time based, compliance-based or corrective rather asset
  • Performance-based, or condition-based
  • Deficient Management of Change process
  • Lack of formal process for management of third-party recommendations
  • Investment in high-tech solutions and limited assessment of displayed, collected data
  • High staff & contractor turnover
