Case Study

Driving improvement in asset integrity

Creating a blended team to ensure asset performance improvement

The Challenge

The client was suffering a lack of visibility of their individual assets’ performance, a high level of downtime and not meeting turnaround targets due to overrun of inspection activities. They had a high backlog of maintenance and inspection activities.

Our Approach

Advisian created a blended team with a mix of specific expertise including a management consultant to drive process; an asset integrity technical expert who had experience of a variety of operators to enable industry best practice to be shared; and asset integrity leads within each operating asset to ensure buy in and ability to share isolated best practices.


  • Increased visibility to drive performance improvement
  • Data gaps identified in maintenance management system and improvements reported
  • Reduction in maintenance and inspection backlog due to efficient prioritisation and improved work practices
  • Community developed for ongoing support and sharing of best practice related to inspection planning
  • Reporting of more accurate performance data to enable issues to be identified
