AM Council Discussion: Best Practice Use of Asset Management in Major Capital Projects

Examples of Best Practice Use of Asset Management in Major Capital Projects

Dave Daines, Asset Management Lead at BHP Billiton

Historically, it would appear that a lot of project groups either specifically treat some of this work as Operational Readiness and / or Maintenance Development at the project delivery stage and potentially fail to recognise the benefits at the Project Development stages (Concept / Selection /Definition).

What I am seeking is examples of the asset management approach being truly applied during project development and delivery stages and would like to talk to any organisation that consider they do this well.
