The value will vary between different organizations and their stakeholders. Value can be tangible or intangible, financial or non-financial. Can be applied to all types of assets and by all types and sizes of organizations. Asset Management & AM System •Asset Management: –Coordinated activities of an organisation to realise value from assets in the delivery of its outcomes or objectives –Involves balance of costs, risks and benefits - over time •AM System: –A set of interrelated or interacting elements of an organization, that establish asset management policies and objectives, and the processes needed to achieve those objectives. Relationship between Key Terms Fig 1 DIS 55000 Managing the Organisation Asset Management Asset management system Asset portfolio Coordinated activity of an organization to realize value from assets Set of interrelated or interacting elements to establish AM policy, AM objectives and processes to achieve those objectives Assets that are within the scope of the asset management system 55000 - Asset Management Fundamentals Assets exist to provide value to the organization and its stakeholders Asset management is not about just the assets, but the value they can provide to the organization and stakeholders – via services or products Alignment Asset management translates the organizational objectives into technical and financial decisions, plans and activities. 55000 - Asset Management Fundamentals Leadership and workplace culture are critical Leadership and commitment from all managerial levels is essential for successfully establishing, operating and improving asset management within the organization. Asset management assures that assets will fulfill their required purpose The need for assurance arises from the need to effectively govern an organization. ISO 55001 • Specifies the requirements for a management system for asset management – 73 “Shalls” • Apply in entirety – But Scalable to suit organisation needs • Focus on physical Assets – but can apply to All Assets – Eg. non-physical assets such as leases, brands, intellectual property rights, reputation or agreements. What will the Standards deliver? • A Framework for a consistent Management System approach to AM. • Greater commitment at Senior Management level. • Better integration of asset management and financial management. • More effective asset management process. • Better VALUE to stakeholders Will it replace existing manuals and practice guides such as IIMM? • My view – Answer is resounding NO! • IIMM provides the necessary “How To” meet the Standards requirements. • However the IIMM does need to recognise and be tailored to work with the ISO Standards. IIMM Update – Status Report • Commenced mapping process to identify Sections from IIMM against the 55001 Requirements. • Producing an Addendum to highlight how to apply the IIMM in meeting ISO 55001 requirements. Will the Standards create a stimulus for new guidance and practice? • Can if applied appropriately and not just for sake of compliance. • Lessons can be learned from a more globally consistent approach. • Promoting integration of management systems can break down silos. • Look at any gaps between current practice and what is promoted in the Standards. IPWEA Policy on the ISO Standards • All infrastructure orgs should consider for benefits from applying a MS approach. • Governments to promote at level appropriate to business/community needs. • Not prescriptive – apply to those assets and at level appropriate to stakeholder needs. • Not just for compliance – part of overall management approach. • Orgs to decide on appropriate level of certifying compliance. To Audit or Not for Compliance? • What will your stakeholders expect? • What are the costs/benefits? • Concern regarding the competence –Auditors in the AM MS field. • IPWEA in discussions with AMC (and others) –to establish a technical evaluation process for AM Auditors. Next Steps on ISO? • Standards Australia to resolve through MB19 Committee whether to adopt or modify. • Likely to be in place by beginning of next year. • IPWEA to run series of 1 day workshops to raise awareness and assist in implementation. – Highlight Policy – Using the IIMM as “How To” guide. What will be your position on the Standards? • Consider application for pursuit of good practice? • Voluntarily apply to satisfy stakeholders? • Apply and look to self-certify compliance? • Apply with third party accreditation? • Wait and see what Government requires?
