PAS 55 - Why a Management System Framework for Asset Management? By Rhys Davies – Lloyd’s Register’s Strategic Asset Management Team Leader and proposed Chair of the ISO Project Committee for an International Standard in Asset Management and Wijnand Moonen – Lloyd’s Register Market Sector Leader for Energy

PAS 55 has been around for 5 years and has gained significant presence as a risk based management system across a variety of asset intensive industries worldwide. This presentation will discuss the arguments that lead to the development of a standard in Asset Management and the birth of PAS 55.

The presentation will consider how it delivers value for organizations and explain how it fits with other approaches in a complementary manner such that leading edge organizations are able to focus limited resources on delivering high performing organizations.

At a time when the ISO is launching an initiative to develop PAS 55 further into an International Standard for Asset Management it is timely to look at the successes of PAS 55 to date and explore how it can be developed further to increase international and cross-sectoral application of this well established approach.”

An introduction to PAS 55 – Optimal management of physical assets by James V. Reyes-Picknell, President, Conscious Asset
Management, Mike Blalock and Anders Lif, Global Director, Product & Industry Marketing, IFS World Operations

Asset Management goes well beyond the separate disciplines of engineering and maintenance. It is a discipline that deals with the entire life cycle of our physical assets and until recently there was no widely accepted guideline or standard on what Asset Management was and was not. PAS 55 is a Publicly Available Specification (PAS) published by the British Standards Institution satisfies that demand. Since publication in 2004, PAS 55 has continuously increased in popularity and is now used as a platform for many asset intensive industries around the world. It first gained recognition in the utilities sector and is now spreading to transport, facilities management, food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and natural resources. It is nearing approval by ISO for development into an international standard. PAS 55 gives guidance and a 28-point requirements checklist of good practices in physical asset management and during this session we will introduce how to work with PAS 55 as a guideline for optimal management of physical assets.

PAS 55 leads to sustainable business practices – not just green, not just marketing hype, but businesses that truly serve the needs and interests of all their stakeholders: owners, employees, customers and the society in which it operates. Based on the Deming Cycle of Plan, Do, Check and Act, PAS 55 provides a framework for creating sustainable physical asset management practices tailored to your industry and business environment. You will see a framework for linking asset management practices with company strategy dealing with business risks, targeting asset investment and operational plans, definition of accountabilities and competencies, continuous improvement and change.
