Asset Register Compilation
The formulation of an asset register has two specific purposes:
To ensure all assets are recorded and to provide an inventory of all maintainable items (Note: This register can also be used as part of an accounting function).
To form the building blocks of a sound maintenance management system CMMS.
The formulation of an asset register sounds simple but needs to be as structured as possible. It should be possible to "map" assets within a CMMS i.e. search for the asset at a specific location or systemically, rather than trawling through a list until the required asset is found. It should also be possible to group assets together e.g. view information for all air compressors and produce reports for these groups.
Strategic Maintenance Planning, as specialists in CMMS Systems has a structured approach to producing asset registers and can help:
Fully implement an existing CMMS
Recommend and implement an appropriate new CMMS
Design and implement an effective manual system
Audit, refine and improve the effectiveness of an existing CMMS
Strategic Maintenance Planning is extremely experienced in formulating asset registers and follows the steps below in order to compile the data:
Process Map Diagrams are generated for each plant / operational area / process. This work ensures that all items of equipment are recorded on the asset register and none are missed.
Plant Item List - is derived from the process maps and a detailed equipment audit establishes the Plant Item List for each Process Map.
Asset, Sub-Asset and Sub-Assembly Lists - are defined by breaking down each plant item into its major constituent parts. This section also includes the recording, where available, of base data information for each plant item.
Plant List & Coding Structures - assets are defined with a unique asset code to allow the CMMS to manage and manipulate the assets held in the asset register.
Failure Mode Effect Analysis - is performed on each asset to ascertain its criticality and potential to fail along with the effect this may have on operations.
Reporting - a written report of work completed is presented to the customer. We ensure that our work fits with and enhances existing systems and that you, the client, are briefed throughout the entire process and are involved in all decisions.
We follow a structured & proven methodology to ensure that any relevant staff are fully and properly trained to be confident and competent running the CMMS when we leave the site.
Overall Strategic Maintenance Planning can help YOUR organisation compile a structured asset register, and improve the effectiveness of your Maintenance strategy.
