Many operational or maintenance managers are doing excellent jobs in maintaining their organization’s assets in a good condition and effectively performing the operational needs of the organization. However, these managers often struggle to create an overall engagement or buy-in of their top management or workforce when trying to change or improve the current way of working. Many believe that implementing an asset management system (AMS) will help them to overcome these issues and even help the organization to fulfil its strategic goals, while improving operational efficiency and overall transparency of the assets. But how do you start implementing an asset management system?

ISO 55001 gives you a framework for implementing an asset management system that is accepted worldwide. This ISO standard is built upon the PDCA principle (Plan, Do, Check and Act), embedding continuous improvement in your organization.

In this paper, KPMG will provide you with an understanding of the main building blocks of an asset management system in accordance with the requirements of ISO 55001. At the end of this paper, we will give you an overview of our services in assisting you with the implementation of an asset management system.
