Helmsman has a strong record of establishing maintenance programs along with productivity and performance improvement for complex asset acquisition, maintenance and sustainment programs.
Establishing Maintenance Programs
During a major asset’s operational life, retaining or improving its performance requires a company to employ maintenance and upgrade programs. For major, complex assets, these are likely to continue for decades and involve considerable investment in dollars, time and resources. With so many variables at play, achieving the desired return on investment can prove a difficult task.
We assist organisations to establish the right type of maintenance and upgrade programs to suit the assets and to target productivity and performance improvements that will maximize returns on investment.
Improving Asset Performance
When maintenance programs fall short of expected outcomes, reviews often identify the need for transformation of the business model. These can be far-reaching, typically requiring multiple changes, including organisational design, governance, operating model, culture, and performance management.
We frequently work alongside organisations during these periods to identify the areas that will deliver the greatest positive impact. We’ve learned that the strongest drivers are not always the most obvious, and are often a combination of controls and competencies. We apply a forensic review of operations to uncover the real issues and then develop a set of controls, competencies and behaviours to achieve the desired outcomes.
