Increasing Profitability

Raise Your Plant Performance To a Higher Standard

Asset intensive facilities everywhere face the same challenge: translating the organization’s objectives into asset-related decisions, plans, and activities. In fact, an effective Asset Management program is essential for any facility to achieve maximum asset value.  An effective program manages risk and opportunity to achieve the desired balance of cost, risk and performance. Our clients have found changing their approach to asset management keeps cost low and uptime high.

Asset Management Strategy

Asset Management is complex. Without a solid strategy, organizations frequently find themselves in reactive, emergency mode, spending too much time and money to keep their facility operating efficiently. Our process focuses on risk evaluation and reduction which in turn helps maximize the return on your facility assets and investments. Proactively identifying the right maintenance at the right time improves asset performance and assures regulatory compliance. Our Strategic Asset Management solutions drive continuous improvement and produce measurable results, improving your bottom line.

Our Maintenance and Reliability Services

Early Asset Management

The life cycle cost of an asset is established during the design and installation phase. This is a critical step for evaluating and designing maintenance out of the system, and ensuring optimal asset installation; eliminating failure modes and maximizing return on investment. This approach develops the right balance between risk, cost, and performance.

Minimize Life Cycle Costs (LCC) and Optimize Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

We help you establish fully qualified, optimized asset installations through early equipment management with a focus on front end planning and by designing for reliability. This results in improved uptime which reduces the need for routine outages and reduces operating costs throughout the life of your assets. The end goal is reduced LCC.

Mature Asset Management

Identifying opportunities in your existing asset management strategy can help minimize risk, lower running costs, and optimize operational performance.

A Program Designed to Meet Your Needs and Deliver ROI

Reactive maintenance and most preventive maintenance programs are expensive. In addition, they eventually result in issues with process reliability and manufacturing performance. An effective maintenance program requires a strong asset management strategy at its foundation.

Best practice and compliance based asset management programs are achieved by establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving the organization’s asset management strategy. We provide the maintenance and reliability industry expertise and if necessary, regulatory compliance experience to improve or establish an asset management program tailored for your specific needs. Our asset strategies deliver sustained, optimized asset performance and increase ROI by helping you maximize the value of your assets.

Asset Performance Optimization

Tools such as real-time asset tracking are valuable – especially when they are part of a comprehensive program. Ideally, asset management programs establish the framework for applying the programs and tools that will be used in the day-to-day management of the organization’s physical assets, and implementation of a safety culture. Using asset and program performance optimization techniques, we define the business case, ROI, and roadmap to achieve your business goals.

Define Your Business Case, ROI, and Roadmap to Achieve Your Objectives

We help you benchmark your maintenance program against the best practices in your industry as well as other industries to help you make strategic, data driven decisions and achieve your goals. These goals serve as your guideposts on a journey to continuous improvement, equipment reliability, and optimized production.

This optimization process results in increased quality and equipment reliability, and a reduction in equipment downtime.
