Over the past decade, the reliability and maintenance discipline has seen significant change, yet in many organizations the process of managing reliability strategies has remained the same: informal at best, nonexistent at worst.
Enter Asset Strategy Management ASMx, a transformative framework for continuous reliability improvement. This book articulates the value delivered by ASM, why it's needed, what it involves and how to implement ASM to enable a culture of reliability that will translate to better business outcomes.
A LEADER'S GUIDE TO RELIABILITY TRANSFORMATION IN THE DIGITAL AGE
Today's Reliability and Maintenance leaders are faced with ever-shifting business climates, organizational structure changes, increased performance accountability, and of course, the explosion of the digital era, technology advancement and big data and continue to face these challenges.
Maintenance strategies deteriorate over time leading to poor asset performance and missed reliability targets.
Without optimal strategies deployed to all assets all the time, maintenance costs are higher than they need to be.
An endless cycle of reactive maintenance means time spent repairing failures instead of solving systemic problems.
Strategies are changed without approval or differ from the agreed strategy exposing you to significant risk.
“This timely book has succinctly connected maintenance plans with lifecycle asset strategy management. It illustrates typical pitfalls and ways to avoid them and points out the need for periodic review and update of plans and strategy, a practice that typically is not performed or done poorly.
Especially useful in this period of digital transformation, the bullet lists and descriptions of tasks that must be performed to change an organization’s culture and drive performance provide a roadmap to success that leaders in all types of businesses should follow. I urge anyone who has a stake in asset management within their organization to digest the contents of this book."

Over 80% of organizations have no formal structure around managing the reliability strategies they are executing.
