(0 votes)

Asset Management Logistics is one of the critical aspects underlying the maintenance and management of production and service assets in an industrial/service organisation.

canstockphoto1775489One can have an excellent asset management strategy, a good maintenance plan, an efficacious maintenance organisation, and experienced personnel. But if these are not supported by a fit for purpose logistical infrastructure, the results of the maintenance effort will be disappointing. The same is true regarding the long term management of these assets for maximum gain.

canstockphoto20078780Asset Management Logistics includes the following:

  • The logical flow of people, work, materials, parts, information, etc. in the maintenance work situation.
  • Proper layout design and equipping of the maintenance organisation.
  • Proper design of maintenance plans, procedures, and support services to ensure supportability of production equipment.
  • Maintenance Inventory and Procurement systems that ensures an effective and efficient supply chain to support ongoing maintenance work.
  • Job design and work measurement that sets realistic standards for maintenance work execution.
  • Techniques of Forecasting, Planning, Maintenance Scheduling, and Project Management as means to plan and organise the asset management function well.

There are no formal courses or books on the subject of Asset Management Logistics. Consequently, the design of the logistical elements built into most asset management organisations are based on very flimsy grounds. This course is meant to rectify this situation.
