Sydney chapter members enjoyed hearing some detailed insights last night, 17 May, into the application of Asset Management to the power distribution industry during a presentation by Murray Chandler - Ausgrid's Head of Asset Management Strategy, Performance & Innovation.
Murray discussed the complex balancing of stakeholder requirements against the backdrop of: new business ownership (partial prviatisation late 2016); changing customer demand profiles; take up of new technologies; and a challenging regulatory environment. Focusing on the 'front end' of the AMC's Capability Delivery Model activities of 'Stakeholder Needs' and 'Demand Analysis', it was fascinating to hear about the application of both 'Asset' and 'non-Asset' solutions to meeting those needs/demands.
Murray's presentation was very well received by those present. You can download your own copy of the presentation here. (Content available for members only. To see our affordable membership options, please visit here.)
