What our experience has brought

Our hands on approach leads to an increased cost transparency and increased asset performance.

We realize this by challenging or defining multi-year asset management plans and budgets. Combining the as-is technical conditions of assets with multi-year asset management plans will serve as a stable basis for managing and improveming cost expenditure and asset performance. By implementing a performance management system transparency is increased and continuous improvement, using small step changes, is implemented. Embedding root cause analyses after technical failures will lead to a decrease of breakdowns and increased predictability.

Common issues
in the branch

Life time extention, replacement or dis-investment

With decreasing financial funds for investments it is becoming increasingly important to choose between the short term and the long term opportunities. Having an equipment life span strategy for the short term and the long term is essential. Are you struggling between life time extension, replacement or continuing without investments? Are you getting the right information to properly make a decision on these matters ? We can support you in obtaining the right information and gaining insights in the consequences on the choices to be made.

Changing legislation

Not only the legislation and the statutory requirements are changing and becoming more strict year on year. Also the role and approach of the government and related inspection organizations is changing. With an in- depth knowledge of legislation and statutory requirements of your branch we can support you with reviewing and challenging your technical management and asset management plans.

Competences and capacity

It has been a long time since proper maintenance and equipment analyses have been executed as a result of a lack of focus, time, resources and/or competences. Do you recognise this ?We can support you with executing these type of analyses. We can analyse whether the amount of the type of maintenance you execute is sufficient, nog enough or even too much. We support organization by training and consultancy to increase focus, knowledge and competences so your organization can start initiating continuous improvement.

New information technologies

The capabilities for (the integration of) equipment condition monitoring have increased substantially over the last couple of years whilst the costs have dropped. Real-time monitoring of the equipment condition unleashes new opportunities for more, faster and more in-depth maintenance analyses. However, this will often require a new set-up of your data management, way of working and management to effectively realize the opportunities. We would like to explore how these developments could be of value for your organization.

IP-Solutions

The technical management of assets is under pressure. Increasing competition, cost reduction and continuously changing legislation and compliance requirements demand greater transparency, flexibility and efficiency. Furthermore, there is an increasing requirement and demand on traceability of assurance of technical integrity of assets.

New technologies, digitalization and automation offer opportunities to improve and professionalize asset management in ways which were not possible until recently. IP-Solutions acts in the midst of this playing field. By adapting and using these new developments further improvements can be realized.
