Asset Management, Reliability, Availability & Maintenance (RAM) Services
Asset Management involves the application of consistent and structured strategies designed to increase asset reliability and systems. Asset Management (or Asset Integrity Management) is an essential requirement to achieve world-class performance at any manufacturing facility. Identifying and embracing the best practices in Asset Management enables an organization to avoid having failures, reactive work practices and other “barriers to success.” Valuable resources can be applied to value-added activities.
Building on the strength of our large maintenance organization, Jacobs Consultancy has developed an Asset Management Model that uses methodologies to lead change processes and implement Asset Management best practices required to extract maximum value from the company’s plant assets while maintaining safe, reliable operations and minimizing overall maintenance costs.
