Information Modelling

Defining and managing the information needed to model and manage the complex systems of assets required to deliver a service is a vitally important part of advanced Enterprise Asset and Safety Management.  Too often, the information requirements for a new Asset Management system are simply migrated from old database schemas – resulting in both too much and too little data being captured to support maintenance delivery and analytics.  Ownership of the definition of information required is unclear, meaning that release of new maintenance standards requiring additional asset data capture takes place without effective understanding of the impact of data capture, whilst no one is responsible for retiring data attributes which are no longer required.

The EAMS Group Information Modelling service resolves these problems by defining the information needs of the business, based on its asset classifications, maintenance strategy, operational performance management regime, operational characteristics and new asset build approaches. We also define and implement the asset information ownership model alongside the existing standards maintenance regime to ensure ownership of the information specification is fully aligned with the standards which define the requirement. The service is accelerated through a library of over 200 pre-defined asset hierarchies, systems and classifications, and by an information governance model which includes roles and responsibilities and governance mechanisms across the whole information specification and data governance lifecycle.

HSQEW

We provide strategic consultancy services starting at the executive level, with subject matter experts who understand how your operational business works and how Enterprise Health, Safety, Quality, Environment, Wellbeing (HSQEW) Management can help you achieve your corporate objectives.

We appreciate that change is continuous and will occur at a different pace, even within the same organisation. Our HSQEW diagnostic will pinpoint the problem areas within your organisation and propose solutions. Our Solutions acknowledge the speed at which your organisation can move in order to achieve its goals.

We have a unique benefits realisation model that can track all elements of your HSQEW performance improvement, linking them directly to the Solutions that we have delivered for your organisation. Once you are realising the benefits we will support you to ensure that these are sustained. Through training in our Digital Transformation Centre and collaboration with the rest of the industry we will help you achieve a world class level.

We are continually asked how we manage to realise significant Safety Culture improvements in the organisations we work with. We believe that the union of people, process and System is vital. No single element can deliver the Safety business transformation that your organisation desires by itself. An HSQEW System with the right business rules and outputs, supported by mobile technology will provide the platform to achieve world class.

By continually improving and checking the outputs and using them to drive the behaviours within the organisation, a step change in HSQEW culture will be achieved.

Engineering

A number of EAMS Group’s Consulting Team are Chartered Engineers and/or have spent considerable time (in some cases up to 35 years) in front line Maintenance and Engineering rolls.

This means that when we sit down with our clients to discuss their Asset Management, Engineering and Maintenance challenges we are immediately talking their language because we have a deep understanding of how those assets are designed, built, installed / commissioned, maintained, life-extended and finally decommissioned.

It is this experience and knowledge that enables us to optimally model those assets in our EAM solutions and ensure that the relevant Engineering and Maintenance Standards are enforced in the business processes and subsequently challenged to drive efficiency using evidence captured in the system.

Our multidisciplinary team brings experience from many industry sectors and covers all of the major classes of asset enabling us to bring best asset management practice that has been successfully implemented elsewhere with proven ROI.

At the same time because we will balance the needs of Engineering verse Operations, Finance and IT to ensure that the solution is optimised against the overall strategic aims of the client, delivering a solution that the organisation can rapidly mature into on their ‘Journey to World Class Asset Management’.

Linear Asset Modelling

Most asset intensive organisations will have some linear assets under their care and to some – Road, Rail, Airport and Utility companies for example – they are fundamental to service delivery.

Many of the leading Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solutions have linear asset functionality yet few organisations have successfully managed to exploit this and provide compelling return on investment.

Likewise, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have for some time provided excellent spatial visualisation of linear assets but usually in a siloed manner and not integrated in real-time to the EAM system that is managing the renewal and maintenance of those assets.

So why is it that very few organisations can claim to have an accurate and up-to-date linear asset and location registers with the appropriate business processes, EAM desktop and mobile functionality and output reporting to drive optimised whole life decision making for their linear assets?

The problem usually lies in the design and implementation of the Linear Asset Model which is the foundation of any successful Linear Asset Management solution. At EAMS Group we have been at the forefront of designing and successfully implementing Linear Asset Models for complex networks of assets and will ensure that:

  • All asset classes including those that contain both discrete and linear assets are modelled with reference to a common datum
  • Your Linear Asset Model can mature over-time as missing data is captured through business as usual inspection and maintenance activities rather than expensive dedicated surveys
  • The complexity of the model is hidden from the end users who need to provide the initial linear asset register data. Navigation around the network is made simple using well understood native location coding systems
  • Mobile applications can consume and create / update linear asset model data so that front line users in the field make the right decisions
