Unsung heroes! Assets of the Asset Management Council! Whatever the description, there is no doubt that Asset Management Council volunteers are leaders of industry, who volunteer their time to enrich the services and products of the Asset Management Council, for the benefit of the greater asset management community.
Findings from a recent 2014 Stakeholder Survey showed the importance of volunteers and clear evidence from the asset management community for continued access to good quality information. This has led to enhancing the volunteer structure and portfolio to further support the needs of the members and the asset management community.
Introducing ‘The Executive
Volunteering time, knowledge, experience, contacts and above all enthusiasm, it is the role of ‘The Executive’ to drive and promote transparency in decision making and sharing across the many facets which constitute the Asset Management Council.
Tomorrow morning, the global Certified Asset Management Assessor (CAMA) Exam will be officially launched, taking place in Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney simultaneously.
Based on the Global Forum on Maintenance and Asset Management ‘s (GFMAM – gfmam.org), ‘Competency Specification for an ISO 55001 Asset Management Auditor/Assessor’, the CAMA Exam was developed by leading not-for-profit asset management organisations (World Partners in Asset Management: AM Council, PEMAC, SMRP, ABRAMAN and IFRAMI), and was verified through rigorous technical and psychometric testing.
The CAMA exam’s compliance with the GFMAM’s Competency Specification for an ISO 55001 Asset Management Auditor/Assessor, ensures that successful applicants have the minimum required knowledge to be an ISO 55001 assessor. This means compliance with:
Recently, the Sydney Chapter Committee joined Sally Nugent and Eva Wispereit from AM Council National office to inspect the facilities at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park for AMPEAK 2015.
Many ideas were thrown around to transform what is essentially a blank canvas into a dynamic, engaging and comfortable space. With the experience provided by Frank and Paul from ProShow Productions, who have been engaged on a number of previous AM Council Conferences, I’m confident we’ll get a fantastic result.
Following on from the site inspection, we moved to the Novotel with additional members of the Sydney Chapter, where we had the pleasure of listening to two great topics:
Once again a successful technical seminar was held in Campbell Town, Tasmania. Earlier this month, sixteen delegates attended from all over Tasmania including representatives from TasWater, TasRail, TasNetworks, Hydro Tasmania, Local Government and Engineering Consultancies.
Mo Barghash gave a presentation on the latest news from the Council and an update on ISO 5500X assessor requirements.
Jon Drew - General Manager, Assets, TasRail - gave a presentation of the journey of asset management since he started with TasRail in June last year. He outlined his framework for successful asset management and identified areas where the organisation was developing a major move to drive better performance with a greater emphasis on a preventative maintenance regime.
Anthony Januba is a specialist in protection control for TasNetworks. His presentation centred on methodology for assessing risk of protection equipment failure for making decisions on repair refurbish or renewal. This risk’s costs are affected by failure from age, spare parts availability and manufacturers support all of which drive the economic renewal justification.
Andrew Sneesby from GHD gave an outline of an asset management framework that helps track asset management activities through their lifecycle. The intention was to show how this framework fits within the technical processes of the Asset Management System ISO 5500X asset management system model.
Thank you to everyone who presented, as well as to those who attended.
The next Tasmania event is scheduled for February 2015.
