Typically, resource and energy companies know they need to improve on asset management and maintenance. However, a lack of an integrated maintenance strategy – and the valuable ‘helicopter view’ such a strategy provides – leads inevitably to operational and safety risks, duplication, and inefficiency. The problem lies not in knowing there is room for improvement, but in how to get going.
Denver utilises a Capability Maturity Model to assess our clients’ current state of maturity; often benchmarking against other organisations of similar size and industry to provide recommendations for improvement. The goals is to move closer to an optimised state. The Capability Maturity Model below uses a "traffic light” system (red, orange, and green), aligned with the five levels of the CMM to assess Governance, People, Process and Technology within each process – (Procure an Asset, Register an Asset, Corrective Maintenance, and Preventative Maintenance) under each Asset Category.
With the right tool for the job and one that centralises processes with asset data, you can safeguard the asset, the processes it serves, the safety of people working with it and ultimately the financial reward generated from that investment.
