What is Asset Management and Why do We Need It

Asset Management is a discipline and is concerned about the lifecycle management of assets. Asset Management is often misunderstood, thought to be primarily about the maintenance of assets - this is far from the truth.

Asset management is concerned about all activities associated with getting the most value from the assets which are used to achieve the organisations goals and objectives. This includes activities associated with human resource management, strategy and planning, procurement, engineering, risk,  performance and of course activities associated with the operations and maintenance of equipment.

Organisations who don’t practice good asset management carry hidden risk(s) which may result in tragedy, they waste money and resources, teams and processes are disjointed, there is a lot of firefighting happening and the organisation is not making headway or improvements. Whether you are an Engineer, Para-professional, Asset Manager or a member of top management, you have a role in asset management.

This 40 min talk is about promoting the benefits of asset management and is presented by Mr Richard Edwards and Mr Michael Patterson of AMCL – an international leading asset management consultancy with offices across the world including Singapore.

Formulating Risk-based Replacement Policy

A traditional replacement approach often involves fixed replacement criteria, which are normally being defined for each specific equipment type. The main drawback of this approach is that no account is made for the differences in stress history or in the impact and thereby the risk of failure: within a specific asset class, critical assets follow the same criteria as non-critical assets, leading to (too) high replacement volumes and (too) early replacements.
This presentation is about how to formulate a risk-based replacement process, staying away from fixed replacement criteria. Rather than simply replacing these assets, only these assets (and only these assets)they are subjected to a risk assessment by estimating the probability and impact, using the risk matrix. Next, the optimum solution for mitigating the risk is defined. This may consist of replacement, but it may just as well be refurbishment, intensification of maintenance, or even accepting the risk.

Enhancing Asset Management with Technical Quality

At the current times, due to demands for high efficiency, performance and optimization of utilising assets, asset owners are struggling with managing the end of electrical asset life, operating the power network at manageable risk levels, and increasing the quality of service. This requires a new framework for asset management which allows asset owners to have a better understanding and visibility of their assets, thus enabling appropriate decisions to be made in terms of the allocation of investments required to operate and manage their asset portfolio. While international AM standards such as the ISO 55000 series provide an internationally accepted framework, terminology and structure, they do not propose industry-specific guidelines. Thus asset owners should incorporate the proper technical content in their asset management system when developing a roadmap and corresponding implementation plan.

Digital Asset Management Analytics and Predictive Maintenance

With the ubiquity of data through the use of condition monitoring, industrial automation systems and networks, big data and data analytics can enable new ways in how asset information and data can be used in Asset Management and Maintenance. The presentation will introduce ideas and applications in using such asset information and data with analytics to improve reliability management, adoption of Predictive Maintenance tenets and delivery of asset management outcomes.
