3 training courses designed to unlock efficiencies for your asset

While training may seem like a costly and unnecessary venture right now, it will inevitably unlock ROI opportunities and savings in the long run. As new skills are learned, knowledge is enhanced and efficiencies will be gained in relation to enhanced production, reliability, HSE performance and cost optimization. 

This is especially true within the world of asset management and maintenance optimization at the moment, as there are a wealth of efficiency savings and production optimization  opportunities that can be unearthed and capitalised upon. And effective training can be the much-needed catalyst for these savings. 

My Take on Managing the Cost of Aging Assets

My Take on Managing the Cost of Aging Assets

Managing operational expenditure is a challenge for any asset, but as the age of an asset increases, additional challenges are introduced, and the cost of operational expenditure typically rises. These additional costs are usually driven by equipment failure, obsolescence, and lack of sufficient maintenance.

To help manage the costs of aging assets, maintenance and operational stakeholders need to consider, and invest into proven initiatives that optimise ways of working, increase equipment reliability and assure safety integrity of the facility.

5 tips for preventing unplanned downtime

5 tips for preventing unplanned downtime

The biggest enemy of maintenance and reliability is unplanned downtime. While planned downtime is inevitable when managing a plant, unplanned downtime is often one of the largest challenges and expenses.

When production has to cease unexpectedly because of a broken part or safety issue, time needs to be urgently spent to identify the problem, fix it, and ensure there are no ancillary issues before restarting. This is highly disruptive and costly, and maintenance teams are therefore always striving to avoid unexpected failures or breakdowns.

How to save time and money whilst verifying assets and collecting key data

How to save time and money whilst verifying assets and collecting key data

After 15 years of working with companies to help build asset registers and develop maintenance management programs, our team has identified a trend of inaccurate and missing asset register data, which can cause significant issues for an operating facility. Without good quality and fully populated base data, assets run the risk of: 

  • Equipment failing due to no maintenance being assigned or executed 
  • Spare parts being unavailable due to no visibility on what is required 
  • No assurance that the integrity of the equipment is being managed, which could result in an incident

Add Energy’s Maintenance Engineer, Trent Cooper, has witnessed this issue first-hand. In this blog post, he outlines the importance of plugging data gaps in your asset register, the challenges associated with traditional data collection methods, as well as a new digital way to streamline data collection and verification from source.
