Asset Integrity Group follow a staged approach to our Asset Performance services, whereby we measure the “BASELINE” requirement of an organizations Asset and Integrity Management Framework and provide solutions for improvements i.e. all required systems, drawings and documentation. All of which is built in line with ISO: 14224
When the baseline has been established and improved to a suitable standard, Asset Integrity Group then go onto the “OPERATIONAL PHASE”, whereby RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY and MAINTENANCE must be properly built, implemented and optimized on an ongoing basis in order to achieve business objectives.
A - Sample Analysis (100%)
To ascertain the completeness of the asset register, Asset Integrity Group offer an up-front 100% sample analysis in which a review is carried out looking for gaps in the asset register.
B - Desktop Asset Verification (DAV)
This involves an electronic “desktop” verification of asset register against documentation (P&ID’s, Cause and Effects, EX Register, E&ID’s etc.), giving a clear indication of where the gaps are with regards to missing documentation that is required for effective building of the asset register hierarchy.
An appropriate predecessor to the Physical Verification by allowing work packs to be created for the process to run more efficiently.
C - Physical Asset Verification (PAV)
PAV involves a physical visit to the asset to s verify that equipment on site matches that of the hierarchy within the asset register. During this process, equipment manufacture, model and serial numbers are also taken to be populated in the asset register.
In addition, drawings are red-line marked up and can be converted easily to “as built” drawing status to ensure latest and up to date drawings.
At Asset Integrity Group, we have worked with some of the largest operators in the world to develop Asset Register Hierarchies and are fully conversant with the latest standards such as ISO 14224.
Further to this, we are able to provide detailed information around the operating requirements of all equipment to ensure that a company has all the information at hand, such as:
A - Bill of Materials (BoM’s)
At Asset Integrity Group, we have developed an extensive software library catalogue of BoM’s, in which we can auto-match the BoM’s to respective equipment. In order to successfully carry this out, this requires manufactures model & serial numbers that enables the BoM’s to be read across to the equipment from our catalogue.
Benefits of using Asset Integrity Group for BoM’s development:
B - Manufactures Manuals & Data Sheets (OEM’s)
At Asset Integrity Group we can gather OEM Manuals in line with asset register requirements to ensure that a catalogue of relevant equipment information is available to assist with operation & maintenance. Asset Integrity Group currently have a catalogue of OEM Manuals that have been accumulated through working with various operators/manufacturers or can go out to source these manually.
C - EX Register
In Asset Integrity Group experience with working with many clients throughout the years, a persistent problem keeps presenting itself around the disconnect between the EX Register and the Maintenance Management System (CMMS), in that the EX Register is commonly managed as a separate entity i.e. not stored or reported in the CMMS system. Primarily, the disconnect results in EX maintenance not being properly recorded, reported and required corrective action not being followed through.
To overcome these problems, Asset Integrity Group have tailored an approach whereby the EX Register is built (properly) and integrated to the CMMS system, thus, taking away the need for a service provider to dictate which maintenance must be carried out.
Also, ensuring that all maintenance carried out is being properly recorded, reported and corrective works are managed in a much more efficient way which is in line with the rest of the asset maintenance.
