AMC T&T has invested heavily in recent years to be able to actually apply Life Cycle Management (LCM) in practice. LCM 2020 is the result as a whole renewed asset management approach with the primary objective: Optimizing the effort/ costs and risk management with respect to the required performance/ deployment of the asset.
DYNAM is developed to implement Life Cycle Management in a professional manner and to guide on a basis of system models. To optimize the future cost effectiveness, simulations can be performed based on different usage profiles. The risks involved are then identified, analyzed and controlled in a structured way within ORCA.
DYNAM is an abbreviation for Dynamic Asset Management. DYNAM is a Life Cycle Simulation Tool and is developed to be able to modulate assets across parts of their life cycle in a practical and transparent manner. This modulation runs on different scenarios.Read more!
ORCA stands for Overall Risk Control Application. ORCA has been specially developed for ‘integrated’ risk management using risk registers and control measures.
To properly implement and use asset management standards, methods, techniques and tools, professionals with the applicable skills & competences are needed.
To achieve this, AMC T&T has developed a balanced training program that seamlessly meets those needs. By making use of a digital learning environment containing the complete set of instruments; the required knowledge and skills can be thought effectively.
This Module handles about how the (future) needs of an asset over his lifecycle can be specified in a business economical way.
The approach is based on so-called “system thinking”. This is an approach for managing and maintaining physical objects. You become acquainted with concepts such as;
system boundaries, subsystems, functions, installations, and with activities within the context of asset management. This module connects to the Asset Logistics Engineering lesson modules.
In this module, LCM is presented as a method that enables organizations to make decisions based on ‘System Cost-Effectiveness’. The required ‘system output’ is presented in such a way that it is also possible to start working on the basis of performance contracts, whereby the ‘customer’ (owner / operator) can then make choices based on the (production) output to be realized. both the short and long term.
With LCM the following is pursued:
on the basis of so-called ‘real options’, elaborate alternatives to support decision-making by (higher) management.
This module supports the LCM module and specifically addresses the following questions:
This module / workshop takes 1 to 3 days and offers advanced knowledge of system modelling and how to apply this in practice.
User skills are obtained by working with various real-life cases in the digital learning environment of DYNAM.
An Asset Management Control Game environment (DGAME) is available to experience the usefulness of Life Cycle Simulation in practice.
Support usually consists of advice, IT Engineering and support with implementations.
With this, every specific customer need fulfilled and often tailor-made solutions can be provided following a generic asset management implementation in accordance with ISO 55000.
For example, specifying a Sustainable Asset Management Information System (SAMIS) for incinerators. For this application a complete asset management package has been developed including the maintenance cycle. The focus is on moving from simulation to LCM monitoring and control.
The basis for this development is the asset management system (AMS), as described within the ISO 55000.
IT Engineering support can consist of:
Implementation support can consist of:
