ABPL provide a comprehensive and structured approach to the long-term management of assets. We utilise a systematic process to produce a strategy to effectively maintain, upgrade and operate assets by combining engineering principles with sound business practice and economic rationale, and provide the tools to facilitate a more organised and flexible approach to making decisions.

The main streams in asset management are:

  • Identification of need for the asset
  • Provision of the asset; including its ongoing maintenance
  • Operation of the asset
  • Disposal of the asset when the need no longer exists or it is no longer appropriate for the asset to be retained.


Maintenance Audits

ABPL can undertake maintenance audits to determine whether the way forward is correctly defined and is being followed. The audit will measure the effectiveness of the normal practices and reveal whether improvements are required. From this, action plans may evolve which will refine not only the maintenance strategy, but also the way in which the maintenance operations and technologies are applied.

An audit is a more questioning activity than monitoring performance indicators. It can include a review of one or more of the following four areas:

  • Equipment condition and effectiveness
  • The maintenance processes, and the procedures and systems in place
  • The ISO quality system, if appropriate
  • An improvement project in isolation from all other activities.

Maintenance Plans

ABPL can develop an equipment maintenance plan that will identify the tasks needed to properly maintain fixed plant, mobile plant or process equipment. The equipment maintenance plan will detail the required maintenance tasks. This plan can also provide planning and budgeting information.

Contract Support

ABPL have experience in the management of procurement and life cycle contracts. Managing contracts and monitoring the performance of suppliers is crucial to achieving the intended objectives. Through identifying and monitoring a clear set of contract outcomes and actively working with the supplier to ensure the delivery and achievement of these requirements, we can ensure the intended benefits are actually realised during the period of the contract.

Contract management activities can be broadly grouped into three areas:

  • Service delivery management ensures that the service is being delivered to the level of performance and qualityas agreed.
  • Relationship management keeps the relationship between the two parties open and constructive, aiming to resolve or ease tensions and identify problems early.
  • Contract administration handles the formal governance of the contract and amendments to the contract documentation.
