Life Cycle Engineering, Inc. (LCE) has announced that it will offer three workshops on the International Standard for Asset Management (ISO 55000). The workshops will be offered through LCE’s training entity, the Life Cycle Institute. The ISO 55000 workshops will educate leaders and the workforce on how to align business objectives with a risk-based asset management strategy and implementation plan to maximize value to the organization. The workshops will enable executives and managers to lead asset management activities through hands-on ISO 55000 planning activities specific to each organization.
The Life Cycle Institute is offering the ISO 55000 for Leaders: Developing the Asset Management Policy workshop, a privately held session customized for individual organizations. The half-day workshop teaches the leadership team the most important attributes of the ISO 55000 standard, the potential impact of standards compliance on organization goals and leadership’s role in realizing maximum potential. Leaders will create an asset management policy, guiding principles, decision-making criteria, reporting, continuous improvement requirements and plan for communication, all unique for each organization.
The ISO 55000 for Managers: Developing the Strategic Asset Management Plan workshop is designed to be delivered in conjunction with the ISO 55000 for Leaders workshop. The two-day private workshop is designed to build on the organization-specific asset management policy developed in the leadership workshop. The workshop is ideal for the organization’s operations, maintenance and reliability managers. Participants will create the Strategic Asset Management Plan (SAMP) and outline the implementation plan.
The ISO 55000: Creating an ISO 55000 Implementation Plan is a two-day, public workshop, designed for professionals working in operations charged with leading the ISO 55000 planning and implementation. The workshop is ideal for maintenance managers, reliability engineers and quality assurance professionals. Participants will design and develop a strategic asset management plan based on the components outlined in ISO 55000 guidelines.
“Value of an asset is defined by how much it contributes to the achievement of organizational goals,” said Bill Wilder, director of the Life Cycle Institute. “Our workshops are designed to help our clients optimize asset value and decrease organizational risks through a comprehensive asset management strategy that is built around business objectives and goals.”
