What is ISO 55000? - Implementing ISO 55000

Tuesday, 30 June 2015 12:30

The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) released its first series of standards on asset management in January 2014.

Asset Management is based on a set of fundamentals that were agreed during the development of ISO 55000.  They can be applied to any asset-intensive industry, regardless of your stance on the ISO 55000 standards.

Scott Yates, Principal Consultant at Assetivity has published this short video to help you understand the 4 fundamentals of asset management.


What Does a Good Strategic Asset Management Plan Look Like?

Friday, 30 January 2015 21:04


One of the most common questions we hear in relation to asset management is some variation of “What should my Strategic Asset Management Plan look like?” We used to hear this in regards to asset management strategies under PAS 55, but the greater visibility and lower levels of prescription in ISO 55000 have clearly created uncertainty regarding the practicalities of how to build this important document. While there is no single “right way” to structure a SAMP, we would like to share our thoughts on how to create a good one that will work for your business.


Video Presentation: Visualising the International Asset Management Standard ISO 55001

From January 2015 the International Asset Management standard ISO 55000 will replace the PAS 55 (The British Standards Institute specification for Asset Management). 

The International Asset Management standard ISO 55001 contains a lot of words, and no pictures or graphics. This short 18 minute video explains the key elements of ISO 55001 in a more visual manner, and outlines how they fit together.  It also contains a high level overview of the types of evidence that may be required in order to demonstrate compliance or alignment with each of these elements.

5 Keys to Lean Maintenance and Improving Maintenance Productivity - Part 5 - Environment for Success

Wednesday, 17 December 2014 17:50

In the first in this series of articles, we mentioned that any improvement process is headed for failure without the buy-in and support of all those involved; it is imperative that the leadership and culture is focussed on being proactive rather than reactive, and is performance driven.  In addition, we stated that the development and implementation of a 'balanced scorecard' of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and the support and communication from management are the keys to delivering improvement. In this article we will expand on these thoughts.
