Asset Lifecycle and Lifecycle Cost Management

Optimizing Ageing Assets and Operational Readiness 


About the course:

The current economic climate focused on productivity and cost cutting which has followed our recent boom time has resulted in a unique situation.

There are significant amounts of new assets still being deployed, together with pressures to extend the life of ageing equipment. This has sparked a renewed interest in productivity and operational readiness initiatives based on a more thorough assessment of equipment health and integrity.

These efforts all rely on better management of information and the analysis of this information to identify the less obvious opportunities for improvement in productivity and savings.

Justification of options is now a basic requirement and detailed economical decision making tools and quantitative assessment of condition and health risks are required to support big decisions. This has led to an increased understanding of the need to improve asset knowledge and then to pro- actively manage and take control of asset life events.

The recent release of the ISO 5500X series on Asset Management Systems provides an effective mechanism to support asset life management.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to develop and maintain effective asset management plans to take control of asset life events
  • Apply the most appropriate analysis and modelling methodologies to present life cycle forecasts, maintenance activity selection and optimal life determination
  • Master the process of developing effective zero based budgets, focused on reliability improvement of critical equipment
  • Ability to align the focus to be applied to new assets in support of operational readiness as opposed to ageing assets
  • Realize the importance of master data to support life cycle management and continual improvement
