Asset Management

ABPL provide a comprehensive and structured approach to the long-term management of assets. Our strategies enable effective maintenance, upgrade and operation of assets by combining engineering principles with sound business practice and economic rationale, and our tools facilitate a more organised and flexible approach to making informed decisions.

Main Streams in Asset Management

  • Identification of need for the asset
  • Provision of the asset including its ongoing maintenance
  • Operation of the asset
  • Disposal of the asset when need no longer exists

Maintenance Audits

Our maintenance audits determine whether the way forward is correctly defined and followed.
Audits measure the effectiveness of the normal practices and reveal whether improvements are required. From this, action plans may evolve, which will refine not only the maintenance strategy, but also the way in which the maintenance operations and technologies are applied.
An audit is a more questioning activity than monitoring performance indicators. It can include a review of one or more of the following four areas:
  • Equipment condition and effectiveness
  • Maintenance processes, and the procedures and systems in place
  • The ISO quality system, if appropriate
  • Improvement projects in isolation from all other activities.

Maintenance Plans

ABPL develop equipment maintenance plans that identify the tasks required to properly maintain fixed plant, mobile plant or process equipment.
These plans also provide planning and budgeting information and recommendations.

Contract Support

Our consultants have experience in the management of procurement and life cycle contracts. Managing contracts and monitoring the performance of suppliers is crucial to achieving the intended objectives.
Through the identification and monitoring of a clear set of contract outcomes and actively working with the supplier to ensure the delivery and achievement of these outcomes, we can ensure the intended benefits are actually realised during the period of the contract.
Contract management activities can be broadly grouped into three areas:
  • Service delivery management ensures that the service is being delivered to the level of performance and quality as agreed
  • Relationship management keeps the relationship between the two parties open and constructive, aiming to resolve or ease tensions and identify problems early
  • Contract administration handles the formal governance of the contract and amendments to the contract documentation.
