Asset Management in Ports
Join the Asset Management Council Perth Chapter for a 3-part technical seminar on asset management within the ports industry, featuring presentations from three varied ports across Western Australia. An opportunity to join Dr Carla Boehl for a port walk of Fremantle Ports is available prior to the seminar.
The first presentation from Perth's latest rail themed technical event was well received with the unanimous opinion that the presenter, Kyle Saltmarsh, delivered a technical presentation on 'Acoustic Condition Monitoring' in a manner that was engaging, entertaining and easy to understand.
Wednesday 25 August saw the Perth chapter hold a much anticipated and fully booked out face-to-face event at the offices of Arup (thanks, Arup!) with a 4-part technical seminar themed all around artificial intelligence in asset management.
The audience were treated to presentations on digital transformation and digital twins; enabling sustainable cities; rapid ROI realisation using an automated AI platform; and applying computer vision to detect identification in pipes.
An insightful, intriguing and informative evening where some of WA’s best Railway leaders, Keith Chidley & Simon Lane, discussed asset management approaches in rail. A healthy panel discussion was facilitated by the AMCouncil’s talented Dr Carla Boehl leaving the audience motivated to drive asset management throughout rail.
Our Perth Chapter kicked off their 2021 schedule of events with an in depth look at asset management from Water Corporation's perspective. First at the lecturn were Jakob Verhoef (Principal In Service Assets Regional) and John Nazimek (Principal In Service Assets Metro) who shared how Water Corporation is improving their understanding of risk across a wide range of assets. They explained how Water Corporation is using data to prioritise asset renewals and shared their journey developing Asset Class Management Plans.
The Asset Management Council Perth Chapter facilitated a government focused community of practice with virtually all agencies with large infrastructure asset portfolios represented, as well as the AMCouncil national chair, Dave Daines, and Perth Chapter chair, Dr Carla Boehl. This is the 4th government CoP the Chapter has run in recent years.

What a great turnout at Perth's latest chapter event with AMCouncil members from all over the country coming together to hear from Ian Sedgwick as he shared his knowledge and approach to Asset Management, focusing on the importance of balancing key elements within Asset Management. The second part of an evening proved more of a celebration of 2018. Congratulations to Tristan Velnoweth, who won the quiz and brought home the title 'WA Asset Management Guru of the Year'.
Last week's Perth mining event was so well-attended, the chapter ended up upgrading to a bigger venue in the Deloitte building to accomodate the popularity! A quick AGM resulted in Anselm Boehl being re-elected as Perth Chapter Chair for another season, and we also welcome Michael Patterson to the general WA Committee. Also on the agenda were great presentations, great engagement, and great food and drinks. Read on for further details.

In this ever changing and fast paced world, the running of maintenance operations in large and complex industries is an intricate process and has a significant impact on the profitability of the business.
Managing this process effectively with the current computer-based support has been proven to be difficult, but achieving successful long term implementations and use of these systems requires a major change-management program over many years.
Another great evening learning about Emotional Intelligence, what it is and how it can support the implementation of Asset Management. This workshop lead by ‘Critical Components’ gave a psychological perspective on being more effective as an individual and as a team.
The AGM was also held and a full strength committee elected including 3 new committee members, Jane Agnew, Therese Brooks and Tristan Velnoweth.
Last Thursday saw the Perth chapter conduct their hybrid technical session. It was an insightful and informative evening where Fremantle Ports, Southern Ports and the Pilbara Ports Authority were able to come together to present on asset management approaches in ports.

People from all around Australia watched on as Perth broadcasted their technical meet last night (a first for AMCouncil which we hope to do more of!) when Felicia Wong from Frontal Business Consultants explained how to understand, analyse and interpret financial statements using key ratios. The ability to understand financial statements is one of the imporant skills that will be condered favourably for upward career-mobility, and many people - both at the event and online - took the opportunity to learn more about it.
