Do you have a specific asset maintenance plan in place for your facility?

Will your Asset Maintenance plan consider for obsolescence, breakdowns, life terms and eventual replacement?

There are two favoured strategies; “run to fail” and an asset maintenance plan.
“Run to Fail” does have advantages, but as a generalization, it will cost more in both direct and indirect costs. The indirect costs are often paid from different budgets, but will still have an adverse effect on the overall return for the building.

Indirect costs are costs resulting from reduced energy efficiency and reduced performance of the asset over time.

The reduced performance of an asset may increase call-outs, repair costs, and reflects upon the tenants in terms of more complaints, shorter retention, lower rent and the reputation of the building. Tenants talk to each other and prospective new tenants will often ask existing tenants about the performance of the building.

An effective asset maintenance plan, will extend the lift of the asset, reduce indirect costs and improve value.

Asset Maintenance

All buildings, including commercial and residential apartment buildings, have fixed assets built into them to provide for the building’s operational services for the functionality of the building. Theses assets, and their peripheral equipment, need maintenance and monitoring the same as any other asset, with or without moving parts.
Asset Maintenance is imperative to keep costs low in both energy consumption and breakdown events.

Asset Maintenance Plan

An Asset Maintenance plan can be as simple as a spread sheet or require multi license, multi user software.

The important part of the strategy is to keep the maintenance strategy active, that is, use the plan and keep it up to date.

Asset Register

Consider an asset register as a starting point to develop the plan. This will bring the data of the assets together in a singe document to review what is in urgent need of attention and what you might consider as terminal, that is, "End of Life" equipment. The asset register sets the base line.

Consult with maintenance staff and maintenance service providers to develop the asset register into a maintenance strategy that will serve outcomes and objectives for your facility.

A little time invested now has the opportunity to save significant costs over the long term; the consequence of breakdowns can be severe, including direct financial loss.
