Consulting and Projects
Looking to improve a specific area of your asset management programme? Our asset management specialists are available for short-term or ongoing consulting.
We’ll conduct a thorough Asset Management Improvement Planning (AMIP) assessment of your systems and plant, and use the results to develop a long-term improvement road map which takes current challenges into account and puts ISO 55000 compliance within reach.
Our senior asset management specialists are available to consult on all issues related to your equipment and plant, including getting your organisation ready for ISO 55000 accreditation. Our asset maturity assessments help develop asset management policy, strategy and implementation, and lay the foundation for ongoing asset care plans, standards and procedures. We’ll help you manage all aspects of your asset lifecycle, from asset identification, verification and condition assessments to risk analysis and evaluation; from spare parts administration to inventory optimisation, from condition monitoring to condition-based maintenance programmes. We’ll further assist with energy management and can also guide the planning and management of shutdowns. Our ultimate goal is to help you get the most out of your assets, so that you can do more with your resources while driving down costs.
We’re able to do this effectively thanks to the seniority and experience of our team, as well as our culture of continuous improvement and our thorough understanding of the finer nuances of each client’s case.
Our asset management specialists provide assistance and guidance for projects such as:
- ISO 55000 assessments, alignment and preparation for certification
- Asset management maturity assessments
- Development of an asset management charter consisting of a policy, strategy and implementation plans
- Asset criticality analyses

We believe that our success may be attributed to several factors. For a start, we help our clients develop a full understanding of their needs, and guide them through the actions they need to take to address these. We appoint a resident asset management team who support our proposed solutions, and are on hand to plan, implement and execute them. Added to this, we make sure that another team is in place to take care of the project long after the involvement of our asset care specialists. We also secure buy-in from senior management, so that our solution has their full support. By following these steps, we help our clients entrench a culture of continuous improvement and develop teams geared towards finding practical solutions, even if this means trying a new way of doing things.
