Value and ROI on maintenance readiness


ROI on maintenance readiness


The maintenance readiness process is usually initiated by the Project team applying rigorous focus to the detailed technical design and build aspects of the project. If this is neglected from the outset, it can potentially lead to practical challenges in achieving the desired return on investment at project close out. It is suggested that the transition from execution to operations is where high-value leakage occurs.

Certain case studies illustrated that up to 30% of the initial study value has been destroyed. (Illustrated in the graph alongside.) [Source: Adapted from Deloitte, 2012. Effective Operational Readiness of Large Mining Capital Projects – Avoiding value leakage in the transition from project execution into operations. Article.]
