Asset Management Culture Change: Leadership’s Top Priority
Bob Williamson, Principal, Strategic Work Systems
Asset Management activities, by design, span the entire life cycle of the facility, the equipment, or system. Whether referred to as ISO55000, Total Productive Maintenance, Terotechnology, or as an Asset Management system, a major shift in how the physical assets are managed from concept through operations/maintenance and decommissioning represent a major paradigm shift for most capital-intensive businesses. An Asset Management culture must cut across the traditional organization silos – engineering, procurement, construction, installation, human resources, operations, and maintenance – to develop the most effective, lowest total cost of ownership, managed risk asset deployment strategy. The transition from a traditional business culture to an Asset Management culture is the responsibility of top-level executive management. Recognizing and communicating the big opportunity to manage physical assets differently and setting new expectations must be addressed as a major strategic policy shift, not just another “improvement program” or project. This session will point out the pathways to success and the pitfalls encountered along with way.
