“We have large volumes of poor quality information and we have challenges on-boarding new asset information from capital projects.”
We do not have sufficient data to make asset investment decisions or to monitor business and asset performance. Our asset registers do not reflect the real assets in the field, leading to compliance risks. Our BIM projects are failing to handover effectively into asset operations and realise the benefits of a Digital Twin.
Following AMCL’s collaboration with Scottish and Southern Electricity, (SSE) to develop an Asset Information Strategy and improvement roadmap, AMCL worked with a variety of stakeholders dependent on Asset Information to develop five Information Standards. The standards consolidated the existing, but fragmented, definitions of information requirements to align them to Asset Management decision-making, corporate-level management standards, business processes, regulatory compliance and KPI reporting.
The standards developed to date are:
AMCL then worked with SSE to use the Standards in defining improvements to SSE’s deployment of the Maximo system and its key data sets. Multiple tranches of data quality improvements are underway to increase the data quality of the Asset Register and Maintenance records against the standards. AMCL is also supporting the refinement of the work management processes that will ensure continual improvement of asset information via feedback from data users.
AMCL has been working with a UK based high speed rail organisation that is seeking to become world leading in Asset Management and the management of its Asset Information. Their Asset Information vision was to develop a Common/Connected Data Environment (CDE) that provides internal and external stakeholders with the asset knowledge and asset information that is core to business decision-making.
AMCL was commissioned to develop the scope, the requirements, the outline solution design and support the system procurement and implementation of the CDE. To achieve this AMCL:
