Senior Manager Asset Planning

2:30 PM Workshop C: Improving Maintenance Operations through Asset Life-Cycle Analysis

Improving maintenance operations is important to ensure that repairs are being conducted on time and reduce the backlog of maintenance. The life-cycle of the asset predicts when and the amount of maintenance that will occur, ensuring that this maintenance is included in scheduling. Attending this workshop will give you the knowledge to combat hefty maintenance bills and inadequate scheduling.

This Workshop will Benefit those who:
  • Want to implement condition monitoring to maintain their assets
  • Should be utilising maintenance software from building data to improving job logs
  • Need to learn how to increase the efficiency of maintenance jobs through the location or type of job

What the workshop will cover:
  • Using a mixed mode of maintenance delivery to target liabilities and reduce their risk of occurring
  • Using condition monitoring to manage the state of the asset to ensure that maintenance does not occur before or significantly after it is needed
  • Addressing maintenance backlogs through prioritising and scheduling and planning work jobs
  • Using software to improve jobs logs to increase maintenance efficiency

11:30 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: Understanding How to Effectively Stabilise and Manage Maintenance Backlog

Universities consist of aging infrastructure that now requires constant repairs. With limited funding a maintenance backlog can quickly build up. This session will reflect on different renewal strategies and the processes on how to best achieve them:
  • Prioritising the backlog to stabilise any growth in maintenance backlog
  • Using strategic asset management analytics through lifecycle costing data and viability maintenance to ensure the asset is sustainable
  • Managing backlog through scheduling and planning of maintenance work

1:50 PM CASE STUDY: RMIT Asset Management Initiatives to Achieve Accreditation and Best Practices
