We assist clients to develop clear objectives for their assets, understand their failure modes, then identify the activities and resources needed to manage these failure modes, and achieve their objectives.

Our asset management services include Strategic Asset Management Planning, Spares Optimisation, Asset Management Planning, and Life Cycle Cost Modelling. We also provide training, coaching, mentoring, and other specialist services, including process assessments and improvements.
Bluefield also concentrates on practical, sustainable improvements to reliability, productivity, cost, and safety. Our flagship “Bluefield Transformation” approach is designed to build a culture of proactive maintenance among fixed plant maintenance teams, positioning clients to take advantage of the latest improvements in maintenance systems, processes, and new technologies. We can also conduct failure investigations and defect elimination projects.

Our specialists cover all rail fleets, including passenger, heavy haul, freight, yard and shunt, infrastructure, on-track vehicles, and heritage.
