Successful Project Implementation requires alignment of the overall business strategy and project delivery.
Identifying projects that meet company objectives and can be delivered with available resource and to budget is crucial to meeting performance expectations.
Good asset management decision-making underpins everything that water companies do,
in terms of investing in the right areas and operating efficiently and effectively on behalf of customers, the environment and communities.
Ensuring we derive that value from decision-making is important, as is being able to understand the value of your asset management interventions and investments.
Why do we need to prioritise investment in our Assets?
Population growth often means the network no longer meets the asset standard in terms of a “good” model.
What we can do:
Risk Assessment – We assess the risk of the asset; what’s the consequence of failure is and the likelihood. How do these affect the business drivers? The consequence must link to the Business Drivers (safety, finance, compliance, reputation, resilience)
Competency Assessment – What’s your confidence level in cost estimations (cost models)
Risk Management – What are our options?
Live with risk and do nothing
Live with risk and increase the incoming of info
Operate the network in a different way
Plan for repair or replacement programme
An ageing workforce with no effective succession planning causing skills shortage & lack of historical knowledge
No attraction to the industry
Leadership isn’t utilising knowledge from the field
Culture and Behaviour
