The roadmap originated from interviews with several industry leaders, who proved to be in control of their asset base. This was combined with Mainnovations own knowledge and experience to map out the route to professional asset management, specifically for the (petro) chemical industry. It gives insight in the current maturity level in maintenance or asset management and also shows what is necessary to improve to be able to evolve to the next level.

Content of the Roadmap

The Roadmap Asset Management describes which processes must be set up if a company wants to start with asset management. How these processes should be set up, depends on the maturity level of the organization. Four levels are defined in the report. By indicating which criteria apply per process in the Checklist Asset Management (part of the report), it becomes clear what the current maturity level is. By continuously critically assessing on which topics the organization is not yet in control, it becomes clear where the improvement potential lies. This provides insight to concrete actions needed to further professionalize the organization step by step. So with this roadmap companies can start with asset management in a pragmatic and structured way, or grow to the next level.

Unfortunately the report is only available in Dutch.
