Forget the one size fits all model of asset management. Operational Sustainability, LLC® (OS) can develop and implement overall Asset Performance Management (APM) solutions customized to your needs. From Asset Strategy Management (ASM) to Asset Health, Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM), Risk-Based Inspection (RBI), and Integrity Operating Windows (IOWs) – we have the Asset Lifecycle Management (ALM) solution you need to manage your fleet. Explore the elements of comprehensive, integrated, holistic enterprise asset management.
Asset Management / Work Management
Work management is focused on efficient execution of work. Traditional work management is all about the work order, but OS can help you develop your Enterprise Asset Management process to take a holistic approach through integration with other work processes such as management of change, work permitting, inspection findings, worker competency, root cause analysis and more.
Best-in-class asset management strategies incorporate cost, reliability, asset integrity, EHS compliance, process safety, energy consumption and production into an integrated model… driving better asset strategies at the equipment level. That is what happens within the new APM framework developed by OS that improves asset performance, reduces risk, enhances compliance assurance, and minimizes production losses. This expanded view of APM and ASM addresses process safety, human performance, and asset information management to deliver top and bottom line results.
Trust our experienced experts to help you design and implement new APM processes to incorporate this more holistic approach. The reliability-based strategies, mechanical integrity, and failure elimination of APM processes and overall Asset Strategy Management (ASM) are strengthened when human performance, conduct of operations and process safety are simultaneously addressed from a foundation of shared data elements and an integrated approach.
OSHA 1910.119 describes the requirements for mechanical integrity work processes to prevent loss of containment and ensure process safety and compliance. But one size does not fit all companies for mechanical integrity. OS can help with custom development of mechanical integrity and reliability management systems.
A mechanical integrity work process should encompass the following key activities:
From helping you optimize your management systems, getting buy-in from your culture, to digitizing your work processes, OS offers solutions.
Mobilizing your maintenance and inspection workforce is integral to improving operating efficiencies in the field. Initiating work notifications and progressing work orders are two of the more important functions that can be served by maintenance. Inspection needs to conduct visual inspections and thickness measurements while integrating with data loggers (i.e., UT readings). In addition, inspection and maintenance can integrate when an inspection summary report needs to trigger a work notification – all from a tablet or phone. The result is better quality data gathering, quicker decisions at the shop floor, and improved profitability.
Nearly 70% of companies recently surveyed lacked an Asset Strategy.
APM has been traditionally viewed as a means to improve availability and reliability. Operational Sustainability, LLC adds in asset integrity and some other key components. Traditionally, APM IT solutions have been extremely human intensive to maintain. Newer web-based technology and improved integration capabilities have greatly reduced the burden of implementation of these solutions. Traditionally, Risk-Based Inspection and Reliability Centered Maintenance have been seen as time consuming and expensive. Asset Strategy Libraries and Industry specific-templates have helped reduce the cost and reduce implementation.
OS can help you evaluate all the options and create the right APM strategy for your organization.
How Does OESuite™ Address APM?
The OS APM solution portfolio drives interoperability and integration. Numerous OESuite™ modules act as data sources for Asset Health including Work Management/CMMS, Operator Rounds, Inspection Management/Mechanical Integrity, and Production Loss Management along with supporting integrations to external systems like data historians for sensor information, and condition-based monitoring.
Asset Strategy Management (ASM) is a hub that allows not only asset strategies to be derived, but drives the actual execution of integrated work processes in OESuite including:
FMEA Studies and RCM Studies
Integrity Operating Windows Monitoring
Preventative and Predictive Maintenance within Work Management/CMMS
Inspection Management/Mechanical Integrity
Calibration and Proof Testing
Corrective and Preventative Actions
Production Loss Management
In the end, Asset Strategy improves your maintenance plans and Asset Health is a measure of how good the Asset Strategy is. Asset Health can also be used to inform your capital decisions.
