    GenesisSolutions Announces New ISO 55000 Assessment Service Offering

    Improve Asset Management Infrastructure, Scope & Alignment

    GenesisSolutions utilizes two proven methodologies to perform asset management assessments. These are the GenesisSolutions proprietary EAM Assessment Methodology tool, focused on the efficiency of the day to day operation, looking at people, processes, systems, and technologies; and the Institute for Asset Management (“IAM”) International Organization for Standardization (“ISO”) 55000 Self-Assessment Methodology (“SAM”) tool, focused on the asset management infrastructure, scope, and governance. The EAM Assessment results are primarily intended for maintenance management, technicians, operators, and support staff to better understand how to gain efficiencies within the daily maintenance and asset management workflows. The ISO 55000 Assessment determines the robustness of the asset management practices, capabilities, and systems and is intended for executives and middle management to better understand how to support technicians, operators, and support staff as well as to enable them to contribute to continual improvement of the asset management program.

    The purpose of the new service is to conduct a comprehensive ISO 55000 assessment of an organizations’ maintenance and asset management program in order to establish and document the organization’s expectations for evolving the maintenance and asset management program in a collaborative effort across all functional groups. GenesisSolutions will then deliver a comprehensive assessment report defining opportunities and recommended actions to support the organization in improved asset management infrastructure, scope, and governance in alignment with ISO 55000.

    Proactive Maintenance Optimization (PMO) – An EAM Overview Report

    GenesisSolutions, the Asset Performance Optimization service line for The ABS Group of Companies, released an Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) overview report on Proactive Maintenance Optimization (PMO)  in 2015. Please read below for an excerpt and detailed content listing. To request a copy of the report, please click here.

    “As Proactive Maintenance (PM) Programs get larger and more complex and their tasks more heavily influenced by the Quality and Safety Groups, are they actually still preserving asset functionality?” Dan Miller, a Principal Reliability Engineer with ABS Group asks as he evaluates the strength of a PM Program. “The organization’s performance measures often include PM Completion (or Compliance) data to ascertain how well the Maintenance and Reliability Group is achieving its goals.”
     
    “The metrics may give leadership confidence in how the program is running”, Miller adds; “but if the PMs are not effective, they will do little to improve overall performance and reduce quality and safety issues. Often, the Proactive Maintenance Program, the most visible part of the Asset Management Program, can be its most neglected.”
