We know from our experience at Ivara that each organization is unique and has priorities and challenges that differ from those faced by others. Some organizations already have an established business process for reliability and have aligned their organization to effectively support it. They simply require a focused implementation to optimize asset condition data management to realize rapid performance improvements. Other organizations have centers of excellence that are not yet cohesively combined into an effective overall asset management system. Many organizations are experiencing significant financial and human resource constraints that limit their ability to take on the full scope of asset performance management implementation initially but are prepared to begin the effort now and build on it as conditions improve.
Flexibility and adaptability are essential to address unique situations. Sometimes a focus on formal work identification practices is required, followed by basic program implementation in EXP while others already have a well-defined maintenance program that simply needs to be automated and implemented within EXP. Some organizations have no formal business process defined and require a focus on organizational alignment in order to successfully transition to a proactive environment. Some have little useful equipment data to start with and therefore are not yet interested in analyzing data. Others have several years of meaningful data and are keenly interested in analyzing data and optimizing reliability and performance.
