Asset data integrity discovery for New Plymouth District Council

Asset data integrity discovery for New Plymouth District Council

All Asset Management depends on accurate, essential asset management data. It is the basis of all asset management activity, and success cannot be achieved without it.

The Challenge

Our client, New Plymouth District Council, had recognised the need for a better understanding their asset base. They had realised that they had gaps in, or limited access to, their basic asset data. They had a limited and inconsistent understanding of the risk profile of their assets. They could not demonstrate a risk-based approach to their asset management, including:

  • Integrity assurance and statutory compliance (licence to operate)
  • Health, Safety and Environmental governance
  • Care of business-critical plant and processes
  • Budget prioritisation, optimisation and control
  • Continuous improvement focus

Our Approach

Advisian undertook a multi-site review of the knowledge management process, identifying the data requirement and key documents and data stores. We developed, executed and refined a targeted asset data discovery process which quickly and efficiently confirmed valid data and unearthed the gaps, allowing correction. Advisian then helped our client to define their relevant risk assessment matrices (RAMs) against all key business drivers, using these to run workshops to screen run-to-failure assets and assign criticality to the remainder.

The Results

The discovery process produced a valid asset knowledge base which allowed the appropriate, transparent and accountable assignment of resources and management effort according to the risk. The discovery process brought understanding and alignment of risk management across New Plymouth District Council’s operations.
