Young Asset Management Practitioners (YAMPs) Session 2014

Tuesday 3rd June


YAMPs will benefit from the whole AMPEAK program and as part of the Asset Management Council’s ongoing commitment to encourage ‘the next generation’ to begin their asset management journey, this year’s conference program will again feature a YAMP-focused session.


The Young Asset Manager’s event planned for this year’s AMPEAK conference is aimed at providing some informative views to young engineers about the emerging practice field of Asset Management. There is currently only non institutional learning available for the complex world of Asset Management because it’s emergence as a Business function and multidisciplinary interaction to deliver the Asset Management outcomes are still under development. ISO 55000 series of Asset Management System Standards has raised the profile of Asset Management and potentially the interest in implementing the required structure and processes. The Asset Management Council offers this event to addresses some pressing questions about Asset Management requirements, career possibilities and options, success factors and associated challenges.


The event will be featuring the Perth Zoo, a very uniquely positioned case study in Asset Management. A Professional in the recruitment business for Asset Management provide an overview of the demand and current Asset Management landscape, other experiences come from Public works. Of course the host, Blake Huntley, will share his long experience in Asset Management as an ‘end to end’ business process.

Providing an environment for creating and deepening awareness of what contemporary Asset Management intends to achieve, giving insight into specific experiences sharing and achievements together with Networking with presenters and other interested young engineer is the aim of the forum.

The YAMP Session 2014

With direction from Blake Hunton, Facilities and Environmental Services, a tour of Perth Zoo will detail the infrastructure of the zoo and address the challenges that are faced to upgrade the facilities and incorporate renewable energy for a more sustainable future.


Asset management encompasses much more than mining, transport or oil and gas. A great example of an asset management microcosm is Perth Zoo. Opened in 1898 and home to 1,258 animals, it operates on a limited budget to improve the infrastructure of the existing site and has assets of varying ages. The Perth Zoo must ensure that the animals are housed and maintained (and do not escape), whilst providing education and entertainment to the general public.


This off-site visit will be followed by the YAMP Networking Evening at Crown Convention Centre.

What the Speakers had to say about their 2011

Conference Experiences

"My experience as a first time presenter was very worthwhile. The process of writing the paper and the associated research helped consolidating ideas and various theories into a clear methodology and argument. The review by the technical panel was beneficial in further clarifying and testing the ideas and the case study…It was great having an opportunity to present something you are passionate about to peers and contribute to asset management in industry.

Ray Oweis, RailCorp

"As a speaker and attendee at this event, the conference provided a collaborative and industry-wide view of the challenges in asset management. The frank, friendly and open forum enabled practitioners to share and discuss very practical issues (strategic, tactical and operational) and potential approaches.”

Naomi Feigl, Parsons Brinckerhoff

Presenting at ICOMS provides a feedback from a wide spectrum of industries, thus providing insights to further applications.  The phrases "We are facing the same issues too" and "We tend to manage it this way...." can have far reaching benefits. Presenting at ICOMS allows me to share ideas with other presenters and also conference attendees, some of whom became part of my professional support network.

Gerard Gan, Mulgrave Engineers

Hands-on Workshops

Sharpen your Asset Management skills and knowledge by particpating in any of our specialised workshops conducted as part of the ICOMS Asset Management Conference, running on Friday June 8th, from 9.00am to 4.30pm.

Workshop 1: Developing an Asset Renewal Strategy Dr. Diederik Lugtigheid, Haultrax

Do you have an asset renewal strategy? How effective is it? Without an asset renewal strategy, assets deteriorate and managers face the consequences of ageing plants, such as reduced quality/output, efficiency and cost effectiveness.

Workshop 2: Leading Process Innovation in Asset Managemen Steve Doran, Infrastream Pty Ltd

Asset management and maintenance leaders are driven by increasingly heightened pressure to improve the organisation’s bottom line. In this environment, continuing with the status quo poses great risks, especially in contrast to the potential benefits to be gained through the pursuit of innovation. Highlighting people, process and technology success keys, this practical and interactive workshop will equip attendees to lead and influence process innovation in asset management within their organisation by:
•  Exploring the common pitfalls and hurdles in this field and how to overcome them
•  Working through a staged approach to developing and implementing such changes
•  Describing five common step change opportunities, by example and from across the asset life cycle, with proven outcomes
•  Outlining eight support framework elements to boost asset performance improvement activity from frontline staff or contractors

Workshop 4 Asset Management Plans Ernst Krauss, Woodside

The Asset Management Council’s definition of asset management is – “The life cycle management of physical assets to achieve the stated outputs of the enterprise.” As a result, an Asset Management Plan (AMP) should directly support the requirements of the Business Plan. The content of the AMP should both articulate the required asset outputs and support the achievement of those outputs.

Workshop 6 Technology Innovation Hemant Rathod, SAP

Technology to Enhance Field-Force Productivity - The new generation of IT solutions provides ways to ensure that information travels to the user rather than user travel to access the information.

High Performing Asset Analytics - This session will give a quick view on some of the new applications developed on HANA based analytical platform and provide an opportunity to all participants to judge and identify areas where they can use such technology and bring in value for their day–to-day analytical needs.

Workshop 7: How to Predict Reliability and Availability for New Projects Michael Drew, ARMS Reliability

If you are concerned with maximizing uptime, minimizing unplanned downtime, minimizing maintenance costs and truly understanding the impact your proposed maintenance strategy will have on the design of your next capital project, then this educational series will provide you with the tools you need to make an informed decision about your organizations projects.

About Hobart

Surrounded as it is by the coast and untamed wilderness, Hobart offers plenty of opportunity for active pursuits. Take a hike up Mount Wellington or get an adrenaline rush on a mountain bike ride down; take an exhilarating white-water jet boat ride on the stunning Huon River; journey through the treetops of the spectacular Tahune National Forest on the elevated Airwalk walkway; or simply explore the wilderness surrounding Hobart in one of the many World Heritage Areas such as Mount Field National Park. For more leisurely pursuits, Hobart is just a short trip to Port Arthur where you can learn about Australia’s harsh convict history, Moorilla estate where you can drink fine wine and visit the world class Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) and Barilla Bay where you can shuck your own oysters, just fresh out of the water.

Take advantage of the long weekend following the conference to explore the many attractions that Hobart has to offer.

Questions

What is sustainability in asset management terms?
What does the community consider to be sustainability?
What might asset management practitioners need to take into account in the future?
Who decides?

Panellists

Peter Way, IPWEA
Tim Goshert, SMRP
Richard Edwards, IAM, UK
Chris Adams, AWA

Background

Sustainability is defined in many ways by asset management practitioners. So what is sustainability, and how does it interrelate with asset management?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sustainability is the capacity to endure. In ecology, the word describes how biological systems remain diverse and productive over time. Long-lived and healthy wetlands and forests are examples of sustainable biological systems. For humans, sustainability is the potential for long-term maintenance of well being, which has environmental, economic, and social dimensions.

The word sustainability is derived from the Latin sustinere (tenere, to hold; sus, up). Dictionaries provide more than ten meanings for sustain, the main ones being to “maintain", "support", or "endure”.[4][5] However, since the 1980s sustainability has been used more in the sense of human sustainability on planet Earth and this has resulted in the most widely quoted definition of sustainability and sustainable development, that of the Brundtland Commission of the United Nations on March 20, 1987: “sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”[6][7]

The Institute of Public Works Engineering have, in their position paper on “SUSTAINABILITY IN SERVICE PROVISION” (http://www.ipwea.org.au/nams/upload/PP2.pdf), suggested that this view of sustainability be adopted, and therefore considered part of the triple bottom line, but that people operating in different parts of a business or organisation – such as physical asset management, financial management, customers – will have different and narrower definitions of sustainability.

The emerging ISO standard on asset management has a draft definition of asset management as “systematic and coordinated activities and practices through which an organization optimally and sustainably manages its assets and asset systems, their associated performance, risks and expenditures over their life cycles for the purpose of achieving its organizational strategic plan”

Panel: ISO Asset Management Standard

There is an international committee developing the ISO Asset Management Standards

Questions

What is the overall intent of developing this standard beyond PAS55?
This standard is not about assets – what is it about?
What material should the standard cover?
How are people and IP covered by the standard?
What are the relationships between safety, environment, quality systems and asset management?
Has sustainability been suitably defined?
How will the standard deal with the differences between simple and complex systems?
How will the standard manage different approaches by different industries and disciplines?

ICOMS 2011 WORKSHOPS

The Workshops are a "Hands-On" day for Asset Managers to sharpen their skills, to focus on critical, professional competence and to benchmark through a full day of workshops and networking.

Each workshop is presented by a renowned asset manager and offers an opportunity to hone your skills in an interactive group of limited size.

Workshops will run 9.00am to 4.30pm on the last day of the conference. Notes and other necessary material will be provided by the Workshop leader.

The following workshops and training intensives are scheduled for Friday 20 May, 2011:

Integrated Asset Management Using SAP

Presented by Hemant Rathod, Johann Schachtner, Brindusa Radulescu and Hanneke Raap, SAP

Increased cost and non-compliance as a result of poor maintenance management present a major risk to organizations.   Organizations commit substantial resources to review these risks and plans for its mitigation. Planning corrective measures to avoid or reduce impact of these operational risks can be a challenging and daunting task. These risks can be reduced through the identification of various root causes and follow standardized processes to manage the risks across life cycle of the assets.

In this two part workshop we will review solutions offered by SAP to manage safe, efficient and reliable assets. The workshop will also give a view on how improved analytical solutions from SAP can help monitor asset performance and provide visibility with regards to process compliance. Practical application will be demonstrated by presenting selected use cases.

 

Part 1: Managing safety, operational risk and compliance using SAP solution

The session will give an overview of operational risk management using harmonized set of solutions from SAP.  It will give a perspective on how to manage and reduce risks that arise in the course of daily operations, improve safety and confirm compliance with focus on :

  • Enterprise Safety and Risk Management
  • How to move from Risk Assessment to a Pro-Active Risk Management Approach
  • How to increase safety performance of the company’s operations, while increasing operational reliability.
  • Integrate Compliance of Safety management Processes utilizing SAP GRC and SAP Audit Management
  • How to  set up processes to review effective usage of standards across the organization

 

Part 2: Solution for managing performance of assets

High performance, as it relates to assets, is achieved when safety and performance are  managed together across an asset's life  cycle, This is a  multi- dimensional  challenge. Technology is a key enabler. SAP provides the functionality and technology platform to improve asset performance.  Capable asset analytics and performance management is a key to drive high performing assets.

Maintenance improvement Initiatives, like any other initiative, is subjected to more aggressive return on investment (ROI) hurdles. Asset analytics and performance management initiatives, if executed properly, are  capable of delivering rapid payback.

In this session will focus on the following:

  • Modern trends in analytics
  • The business case for asset analytics and performance management
  • Framework for Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety

Asset Management Plans

Instructor: Gary Winsor

This training intensive will:

  • Identify what content should be addressed by a typical Asset Management Plan
  • Identify the benefits able to be realised by a properly constructed Asset Management Plan
  • Develop the benefits of adopting and implementing efficient Asset Management Plans
  • Assist participants initiate the development of Asset Management Plans in their enterprise

The AM Council’s definition of asset management is – “The life cycle management of physical assets to achieve the stated outputs of the enterprise.”

As a result, an Asset Management Plan (AMP) should directly support the requirements of the Business Plan.  The content of the AMP should both articulate the required asset outputs and support the achievement of those outputs.  The AMP does this through the development & delivery of an effective management approach supported by effective processes.

This asset management planning training intensive is suitable for:

  • All business activity types including mining, Defence, oil and gas, power generation and transmission, state and local government and chemical industry
  • Any person who wishes to realise the benefits from the effective use of assets within their organisation.

Life Cycle Costing (LCC) Management

Instructor: Dr Ali Zuashkiani, University of Toronto, School of Continuing Studies

 

Engineering Organizations adopting Life Cycle Costing are rapidly increasing in number, as more of them recognize its role in making optimal long-term decisions. The idea of “buying the cheapest” is losing its appeal as more managers realize that, in the long run, the cheapest acquisition costs rarely coincide with the least expensive buy. This session combines Life Cycle Costing decisions with many real-world examples in an interactive and hands-on forum. It will help those responsible for LCC-related decisions to learn when to buy a new asset, how to determine the best time to replace an existing asset, and how to forecast the future life cycle costs of their fixed and mobile machinery and equipment.

The application of the models discussed in the workshop will be demonstrated by means of real case studies. We will introduce software packages called AGE/CON (for mobile equipment replacement decisions) and PERDEC (for fixed capital equipment decisions) and demonstrate how to use them to solve LCC problems. We will also display a software package that can be used to predict future operation and maintenance costs.

 

Life cycle costing management and why it is important

  • Definition of life cycle and its implications
  • Life cycle costs categories
  • Solving inter-departmental conflicts in asset replacement/acquisition decisions
  • The size of the prize

Choosing the best buy in the long term

  • The concept of the time value of money
  • Defining cash flow diagram
  • Calculating net present value of a decision
  • Estimating the time value of money in practice

Calculating the economic life of an asset

  • The trade-off between O & M costs and capital expenditures: establishing the economic life of fixed equipment such as an internal combustion engine
  • South American case study: establishing the economic life of mobile equipment, including fleet vehicles and fork lift trucks
  • North American case study: establishing the economic life of manufacturing equipment that is highly utilized when new, but used for peak demands as it ages
  • North American case studies: transportation
  • Turbo expander case study: how to calculate the best time to replace the current asset with a more technologically-improved asset Repairing an existing asset versus buying a new one
  • South American case study: repair or replace a loader
  • North American case study: repair a leak or replace the damaged section of an underground pipe

Predicting future life cycle costs of a fleet

  • North American case study: a fleet of transformers of a major electricity distribution company

Carrying out LCC analysis when there is limited (or no) data available

  • North American case study: establishing the economic life of linear assets such as the steel mains of a major gas distribution company
  • North American case study: estimating the distribution of end of life of transformers based on experts’ opinions

The case studies referred to above include internal combustion engines, fleet vehicles, forklift trucks, a turbo expander, a loader repair-or-replace decision and a fleet of transformers. They represent real-world examples where companies saved hundreds of millions of dollars by applying LCC management principles.

Clinic

  • AGE/CON software for the optimization of the economic life of mobile equipment
  • PERDEC software for the optimization of the economic life of plant equipment

Engineering Spare Parts – managing risk and cost

Presented by Jagdish Shinde, Oniqua Pty Ltd

This one day workshop covers the fundamental elements of managing spare parts inventory from a cost and risk perspective. The workshop highlights the expectations of key stakeholders (maintenance, supply and finance) and, through practical examples, provides a sustainable process to achieve the best business outcome. The process takes into account stakeholder objectives for:

  • initial holding estimates; and
  • changes over time due to aging plant and re-supply performance.

The workshop provides the delegate with an appreciation of the business issues and practical solutions to manage the issues. The workshop covers the following key areas:

  • Master Data and its importance
  • Economic spare parts holdings based upon asset risk and resupply performance (cost & time)
  • Spare parts profiling
  • Optimizing working capital – how many spares should be held
  • Measuring resupply performance - both cost and risk
  • Systematic processes to ensure sustained results
  • Some best practice techniques that are used by 8 of the top 10 mining companies.

Key points are supported with exercises that provide the delegate with an appreciation of how to calculate initial spare parts holdings and understand the influences likely to impact the model over time and how to manage these influences.

Full papers (as traditionally presented at ICOMS) should be used to report on mature work, or efforts that have reached an important milestone. These papers will be rigorously peer reviewed and if accepted, compiled into a formal conference proceedings that will then be registered with one or more referencing databases (e.g. Compendex). To be accepted, papers will need to present a concise, coherent and well argued case (be this theoretical or practical). Full papers will be limited to 12 pages and adhere to the ICOMS 2010 author’s guide.  An award will be presented to the author(s) of the best full paper (on the basis of their written submission).

Short Papers

Short papers should be used to: highlight efforts that might be in an early stage but are important for the asset management community to be made aware of, present novel theories for discussion, or illustrate systems or case studies that can be described sufficiently in a limited space. Short papers are restricted to 2 pages, inclusive of all text, illustrations, graphs and references. These will also be checked for relevance, novelty and importance of the underlying work, as well as adherence to the conference guidelines.  Accepted short papers will be published in separate conference booklet, but this will not be registered with referencing databases. Accompanying presentation slides will also need to be supplied for publication via the AMC website following the conference.

General Instructions

All contributions will need to be written in English and must follow the ICOMS Asset Management Conference 2011 authors guide, which is  available for downloading from the conference website.  Potential authors should also be aware that commercialization in the form of touting a specific organization or product will not be tolerated in submissions to either category.  Abstracts and final papers will also need to be submitted via this Website.  Firstly, potential authors must Login or Register.  Then from Main Menu on the left hand side select Submit Abstract..

Paper Template for authors:  papertemplate.doc


GUIDELINES FOR PREPARING A GOOD PAPER (INFORMATION ONLY)


Four general types of papers, commonly presented at ICOMS, have been identified:

(a)     Theoretical/Research Papers (including models)

(b)     Case Studies

(c)     Theory plus Case Study (Applied R&D)

(d)     Review Papers

(e)     Short Papers

Some guidelines apply to all types of papers, whilst others are specific to one or more types of paper.

Common Guidelines


1.       The sequence of sections in any paper is important to readers trying to follow the logic and description of another’s work. Matters which the authors assume to be well known may not be familiar to, or agreed by all readers and so must be clearly stated as background/assumptions to the study.

2.       A proposition becomes a hypothesis only when a logical and plausible explanation has been devised for its support.  A hypothesis becomes a theory when supported by the evidence of at least one Case Study.  A theory can be undone by just one contrary Case Study, so should never be regarded as the last word on the subject.  Only confirmed data can be regarded as facts.

3.       The following Section heads should be considered for all papers. Those marked with an asterisk are considered particularly important and should not be omitted without good reason. Those with two asterisks are compulsory for ICOMS. The exact wording of headings may be varied.

Abstract or Summary*

*Keywords** (up to 6)

Introduction* (Explain the purpose and outline how and what was achieved)

Literature Review* (include authors’ own previous relevant work)

Description of Work Done*

*Theory (This can come later if theory formation followed from analysis of data)

Data*

Analysis of Results*

*Conclusions**

*Acknowledgements

References*

Bibliography

4.      From 2009 a new type of paper presentation has been incorporated in the ICOMS Asset Management Conference 2010.   These short papers should be used to highlight efforts that might be in an early stage but are important for the asset management community to be made aware of, present novel theories for discussion, or illustrate systems or case studies that can be described sufficiently in a limited space.   Abstract papers are restricted to 2 pages, inclusive of all text, illustrations, graphs and references.


The short papers shall contain the following headings/sections.

Introduction and Aims:
A paragraph which clearly and succinctly describes what it is being assessed / described in the paper

Methods/Processes/Work Done: 
Describe the approach used, or the proposal, what has been done, what methods were selected and why. Theory / methodology must be explained in terms intelligible to a graduate engineer.

Results:
Short description of the outcomes of the case study / proposals / experiment / investigations

Conclusions:
Describe what conclusions can be drawn from the results and what areas remain open for ongoing investigation / research.  Include any lessons learned.

5.       Papers must be written in plain, correctly spelt and grammatically correct English. Jargon should be avoided and acronyms must be defined the first time they are used.   

6.       Blatant advertising is strictly forbidden and papers in which a company, product or service are specifically promoted (rather than the underlying concepts) are likely to be rejected during the review process.  Authors are however, encouraged to very briefly state their affiliation and describe their business as it relates to the subject matter to ensure the work can be appropriately contextualised.  Consultants may need permission of their customers, which is the responsibility of authors.

7.       References are work that is directly cited in the paper whilst a bibliography consists of other written work the authors found useful when preparing the paper.

Theoretical/Research Papers (Including models)


1.       Authors must show by means of a thorough literature survey that the theory really is new and what it owes to previous work by the authors and others.

2.       Theory must be explained in terms intelligible to a graduate engineer.

3.       Proposals for testing the new theory must be included.

4.       Examples to illustrate the operation of the logic or mathematics shall be given.  It is acceptable to rework old data or to use fabricated data for these examples, but sources must be clearly stated.

5.       If any example is real and new, then the paper is re-classified as Theory plus Case Study.

6.       A paper is no less theoretical if it is expressed in words rather than algebra, or both; it must be logically developed and not just an opinion.

7.       Experimental methods and analysis techniques must describe what was done and what happened in sufficient detail for the experiments and/or analysis to be repeated by another person or team.  Data used and the testing environment must be fully described.

Theory Plus Case Study Papers  (Applied R&D)


1.       All the rules for Theoretical/Research Papers (see above) and Case Studies (see below) still apply.

2.       State clearly whether the case study was conducted to test the theory or the theory arose from the data’s analysis.

Case Studies


1.       Case studies are essential to formulate, improve and increase confidence in theories. The fact that a case study “merely confirms an established theory” does not detract from its value. If it seems to disprove current theory then there is all the more reason to publish it.

2.       It is vital that case studies describe what was done and what happened in sufficient detail for the study to be repeated by another person or team. Methodology, data and environment must be fully described. For example, data on failures must include preventive renewals and overhauls. Good data-sets in this field are unfortunately rare, and so precious.

3.       Data should be analysed using current methodology. The author(s) may then comment on how well the results accord with current theories, speculate on the reasons for discrepancies and propose further work to settle outstanding matters.

Review Papers


1.       A review paper is a detailed examination of the state of play in a defined subject area. It should be more than a literature survey. It should draw attention to historical development of theory and practice, inconsistencies and disagreements, case studies, analyses and re-analyses of published data-sets where appropriate, etc. They usually come from academia but sometimes from consultancies.

2.       The References and Bibliography sections will inevitably be large, and will become too large if no limit is placed on referencing less meritorious work from long ago. The great gurus of the past should be acknowledged though. Reference to previous review papers is a good way to keep such papers within bounds.

3.       Such papers often arise from deep and extensive literature surveys by doctoral students who have reached the stage of forming their own opinions and sketching out their substantive research to come, or professors seeking consolidation of years of work by themselves and colleagues, again in order to see what now needs doing. The art is to condense to a reasonable size without losing either the thread of development or any work vital to further progress.

Simple accumulation is not enough to get such work published. Review papers must proceed to critical re-examination and reasoned judgements about the continued usefulness in several contexts of the work reviewed.

ICOMS Asset Management Conference Adelaide 2010

ICOMS Asset Management Conference Adelaide 2010

Monday 21st to Thursday 24th June 2010
University of Adelaide, South Australia

 

ICOMS Asset Management Conference

 

What is the ICOMS Asset Management Conference?

The ICOMS Asset Management Conference is the Asset Management Council’s premier meeting place for asset management and maintenance professionals. Each year, speakers and delegates from across Australia and around the world come together to learn and exchange the latest technical knowledge, and to meet and network with other like-minded individuals.

Beginning in 1994 with its main focus on maintenance, the Conference now encompasses all aspects of engineering asset management, such as asset management principles, processes, configuration management, continuous improvement, demand management, integrated support, operations and maintenance and systems engineering. Also covered in the Conference are technical and managerial aspects of asset management.

This year, the ICOMS Asset Management Conference offers a variety of new ways for delegates to be involved. In addition to attending plenary keynote, full paper and short paper presentations, delegates will be able to participate in interactive panel discussions, case study round table workshops and the Asset Management Council technical group open forums. Lengthy breaks between sessions and various evening functions will provide vital opportunities for delegates to network with keynotes, speakers and other attendees.

We welcome and invite all members and supporters of the asset management profession, be they end-users, academics, consultants or providers of asset management services to participate in our 2010 ICOMS Asset Management Conference.

Who should come to the ICOMS Asset Management Conference?

Anyone who is interested in maximizing equipment reliability, increasing plant performance or enhancing company profitability through better or smarter asset management should attend the ICOMS Asset Management Conference.

Presenting at the ICOMS Asset Management Conference

There are two ways to present at the ICOMS Asset Management Conference.

Authors can submit full papers (as traditionally seen at the ICOMS Asset Management Conference) that are peer-reviewed prior to the conference and subsequently published in formal proceedings.

Alternatively, authors can submit short papers, which are checked by the Conference Technical Team to ensure that the proposed material is fresh, challenging, sound and relevant. Short papers will not be peer-reviewed or included in the official conference proceedings.

Both full and short papers must be presented by one of their authors during the conference. Please note that the call for papers is now closed for ICOMS Asset Management Conference 2010.

Industry suppliers are able to advertise their products and services by hosting a booth at the accompanying MAINTEX Trade Exhibition.

A note from the Technical Chair

The Conference Technical Organizing Committee is working hard to ensure that the final program is both engaging, distinctive and of high quality. However, we need your help. Consider becoming one of our discerning speakers. Join us as a delegate and member of the Asset Management Community. Because it is your knowledge, your experience, your insight and your willingness to participate that will make the ICOMS Asset Management Conference 2010 a time to remember.

I look forward to seeing you in Adelaide.

Joel Leonard Joel_Leonard_photo ‘The Maintenance Evangelist’ SkillTV.net USA

The maintenance industry is fast losing its most qualified and reliable workers - through retirement and attrition - and is not replacing them as quickly as required to avert a full-on maintenance crisis. Joel Leonard is one of the few people who has made it a personal mission to turn industry recruitment around. His zeal has earned him the nickname "maintenance evangelist," and he plans to make all media outlets his pulpit for improving the image of this shrinking industry.

For the last quarter of a century Penny’s life has revolved around asset management.  Not the technical, engineering variety, but the strategic decision making end of town where decisions on assets are taken, not to make the assets better, but to make the business better.  In this role she has spent several years as advisor to a Minister of Construction, Resources and Energy, advised numerous State Audit Commissions of Inquiry, researched and wrote 8 Parliamentary reports on asset renewal, established an asset management institute in Kuala Lumpur, and been on the advisory panels for numerous associations and courses in asset management.  She has consulted and advised at all levels of government as well as for the private sector, both here and overseas. Looking back, she notes that policies that have worked well in some areas did not work at all in others, that asset management has developed differently in industry and in the public sector, and that different disciplines have progressed at different rates in their overall understanding. To make sense of all of this, Penny is currently working on a “History of Asset Management” covering developments over the last 30 years.

Conference Objective

Despite the current economic climate Australia has a number of asset replacement challenges as aged assets approach retirement, and demand for services is sustained or in some cases increases. This combined with the financial constraints being experienced provides us all with challenges about how we can sustain our businesses, and our assets, to continue to achieve the required delivery of services. The assets which enable our businesses to deliver the required services have long lifecycles, longer than the economic boom/bust cycle, longer than the tenure on a CEO or Board member, and certainly longer than a political term.

Keynote:
The Team Approach to the Development of Life Cycle Management Strategies
Whether an asset is new or has been in use for decades, responsible physical asset management means ensuring that the asset meets the needs of the community that depends on it. This requires safe, cost effective, and technically defensible Life Cycle Management Strategies.
There are many factors that influence an asset’s performance such as the proactive maintenance it receives. But there are a multitude of other dynamics such as operating procedures, technical publications, training programs, equipment design, supply issues, operating environment, and operational tempo. The identification of Life Cycle Management Strategies includes all these elements.
The best way to achieve this is to adopt a facilitated team approach. A diverse team of experts, including those most intimate with the operating environment, meets in a formal setting bringing together a blend of experience, judgment, and technical data. This ensures that the system is analyzed not only from the viewpoint of its design but from the perspective of how it must function in its operating environment. Nancy Regan will detail this team approach and illustrate its power by offering clear examples from her own work.

Keynote:
Intelligent Cost Reduction Through Asset Management: A Case Study
Times are tough and almost everyone is talking about reducing costs. It is in this environment that I start to hear executives asking one of the world’s dumbest questions – “If I accept a lower level of reliability in my assets, how much can I save in my maintenance costs?” While there are exceptions to every rule, it is our experience that for most assets we come across, maintenance costs get a lot higher when we allow reliability to slip. Rather than sacrificing our reliability program now is the time to redouble our efforts and expand the scope of programs in order to achieve intelligent cost reduction that meet the new business objectives. Taking examples from a number of Transfield Services’ sites this presentation will show how using a systematic approach to brown field asset management has delivered substantial and rapid one off cost reductions and yet still delivered continuing year on year reductions into the future
