Maintenance Reviews & Evaluations
As asset management and maintenance managers, the issue of assessing our processes and practices and evaluating their performance can be a difficult one to navigate. There are many Asset Management standards with which to measure your organisation against, but they may not necessarily align with your areas of focus, the way you operate or the outcomes you seek.
At Bluefield, we don’t believe in assessing someone against a standard that they have never seen or tried to implement, as the outcome can never be useful. We specialise in maintenance reviews and evaluations that can generate real improvement for the site. We work collaboratively with our clients to assess their business against the standards they are striving for. We truly understand that when it comes to assessing a business, it’s a waste of everyone’s time if we don’t take into account the standards that the site deems important, alongside the standards that have been set as industry best practices.
We take the time to understand your operation and your approach to asset management, and our first goal is to assess your site against your own standards and what you’re trying to achieve. This is a significant point of difference that ensures the results of our review are actually valued and relevant. It ensures that your site staff will appreciate and understand the outputs of an evaluation and will take on the results as feedback - implementing improvement actions that will benefit the business in the long term.
With years of experience and a wealth of evaluation tools available, we can also assist our clients in setting their internal standards and provide recommendations for improvement to meet industry standards.
We also include in our evaluation approach a structure that involves the assessment of required practices and required outcomes. This is to avoid those evaluations that score all of the practices as high, but the business outcomes are not there. If the practices that are being assessed are important then they should lead to the business outcomes when implemented correctly.
Our assessments give you the information you need to understand where you are, compared to where you’d like to be as well as where you need to be on an industry scale. While it’s vital to conduct internal evaluations, engaging a third party such as Bluefield brings focus to your efforts and aligns your internal goals with external objectives as set by industry standards. It ensures that continuous improvements aren’t just occurring within the confines of your site but also keeping pace with the industry.
Our team of maintenance specialists assess everything from equipment strategy, planning and scheduling to execution and improvement, and we can assess a broad scope or focus on a narrow scope and go deep.
We’ve designed our evaluation processes to align with ISO55000 industry standards for asset management but more importantly to ensure a practical application of this standard to assist you in achieving real results at your site. We’ll work with you over a period of time to slowly educate your team and build your operation to its full potential.
