New Case Study - The Journey to ISO 55001 Certification

As an asset-intensive organisation, Pioneer Energy was focused on demonstrating sound stewardship of its assets and had decided to pursue certification against ISO 55001:2014 as evidence of this. Pioneer Energy also saw ISO 55001 certification as a way of differentiating itself from its competitors and providing customers with confidence in its capabilities to manage assets to meet their needs. In response to a firm commitment to meet ISO 55000 certification, we were engaged to assist Pioneer in their journey to certification.

To read more about how we delievered certification and assisted the client in ensuring this certification was fully embedded and sustained within their organisation, read the full case study below.

New Case Study - The Need for Certification: ISO 55001 vs ISO 9001

Local renewable energy supplier Pioneer Energy was on a journey to achieve certification to the ISO 55001:2014 asset management standard (which it achieved in 2019). When presented with the unique situation where several of their unattended boilers were required to meet ISO 9001 standards, we were engaged to answer the question:

“When Pioneer Energy is certified to ISO 55001, do they still require ISO 9001 certification for the operation and maintenance of each of their limited-attendance/ unattended boilers?” 

To read more about how we answered this question, and allowed Pioneer to save in recertification and surveillance audit costs, read the full case study below.

New Case Study - Asset and Maintenance Management Improvement Program

We were engaged by the client, a large mining and processing company with several mines throughout regional Australia, in order to review their current Asset and Maintenance Management processes and deliver a number of outcomes:

  • An assessment of their current Asset Management practices for alignment against the requirements of ISO 55001 (noting that they were not seeking certification);
  • A detailed assessment of their Maintenance Management practices that supported the overall Asset Management approach;
  • Development and provision of Asset Management awareness training to support improvement efforts;
  • Review and suggested improvements to a new Work Management process that the client had developed but not yet rolled out to the operational sites;
  • Development and provision of tailored Work Management training for specific employment groups;
  • Development of a set of defined Asset and Maintenance Management standards and procedures that were identified as needed to support the client’s Asset and Maintenance Management activities; and
  • A Preventive Maintenance Optimisation (PMO) of the maintenance strategies for four major asset systems.

NEW Case Study - Asset Management Improvement for a Regional Airport Operator

This regional airport provides a significant avenue of entry for both domestic and international visitors supporting the local tourist industry. Consequently, it was important that the airport’s assets reflected an appropriate quality image for the region and the country with passenger traffic expected to grow significantly over the coming years.

The Airport Operator was on a journey to ensure that their assets were being managed appropriately to support achievement of their business objectives . To understand and then improve upon the maturity of their current Asset Management practices, the Airport Operator first sought to benchmark their Asset Management maturity against the AS ISO 55001 Asset Management standard. Although not seeking to be fully compliant or certified to the standard, the Airport Operator wanted to understand the gaps in compliance between their current practices and the requirement of AS ISO 55001 in order to determine their desired level of alignment and subsequently make decisions regarding the improvements that would deliver the most value to the business. Supporting this understanding of opportunities for improvement, the Airport Operator also required a more specific and detailed review of their organisational structure related to Asset Management and the effectiveness of the CMMS they were using to support maintenance activities
