Andy Clayton, Parsons Brinckerhoff - Developing the most effective asset management plan for your rail business

  1. 1. Developing the Most Effective Asset Management Plan What needs to be considered to ensure your model optimises asset returns? Andy Clayton, Parsons Brinckerhoff 1
  2. 2. Contents 2 What is Asset Management? Whole Life Cycle Cost Models Asset Condition Information Asset Management Decisions
  3. 3. 3 What is Asset Management? Whole Life Cycle Cost Models Asset Condition Information Asset Management Decisions
  4. 4. The Institute of Asset Management Definition 4 BSI PAS 55-1:2008 Asset Management “Optimise the delivery and performance of physical assets” The Institute of Asset Management (IAM) What is asset management?
  5. 5. Line of Sight • Line of Sight • Key concept for effective asset management • Flow from business objectives down through to asset management processes 5 What is asset management?
  6. 6. Railway Business Objectives • Risk • Safety of trains • Safety of staff • Performance • Availability • Reliability • Cost • Whole Life Cycle Costs 6 What is asset management? COST PERFORMANCE RISK
  7. 7. 7 What is Asset Management? Whole Life Cycle Cost Models Asset Condition Information Asset Management Decisions
  8. 8. WLC and LCC: ISO 15686 • Whole Life Costs • This is a methodology for the systematic economic consideration of all whole life costs and benefits over a period of analysis, as defined in the agreed scope • Life Cycle Costs (LCC) • This is the cost of an asset, or its part throughout its cycle life, while fulfilling the performance requirements. 8 Whole Life Cycle Models
  9. 9. Whole Life Cycle Elements •  Cost of Infrastructure •  Planning •  Realisation •  Operation & Maintenance •  Removal •  Access Regime •  Track Occupation •  Train Delays •  Cost of Poor Reliability •  Train Delays •  Response Costs 9 Whole Life Cycle Models
  10. 10. 10 Best Practice Model Whole Life Cycle Models
  11. 11. Effective Asset Management? • UIC LICB Study • Long-term benchmarking programme • High variation • Improvement opportunities • How to improve • Good asset information to facilitate good decisions • Avoid under and over maintenance 11 Whole Life Cycle Models Ref: UIC LICB Benchmarking Study
  12. 12. 12 What is Asset Management? Whole Life Cycle Cost Models Asset Condition Information Asset Management Decisions
  13. 13. Collecting Condition Information •  Good information •  Accurate measurement •  Frequent measurement to provide trends •  Repeatable run-on-run •  Provide advanced notice •  Early warning of defect •  Decide to treat early or late •  Cost effective •  To collect •  To analyse •  To store 13 Asset Condition Information
  14. 14. Generic Asset Types • Active Assets • Moving assets •  Switches and Point Operating Equipment •  Level Crossing Barriers • Immediate performance implications • Permanent monitoring equipment • Passive Assets • Static assets •  Track (rails, sleepers, ballast) •  Structures (bridges, tunnels, stations) • Progressive degradation, high costs • Vehicle fitted equipment •  Dedicated or service vehicle 14 Asset Condition Information
  15. 15. Classification
  16. 16. 16 Information Visualisation Asset Condition Information
  17. 17. 17 What is Asset Management? Whole Life Cycle Cost Models Asset Condition Information Asset Management Decisions
  18. 18. Predict and Prevent • Improved Decisions • Understand degradation mechanisms • Improved prediction – tight tolerances • Efficient planning • Effective intervention • Eliminate Failure Modes • Identify root causes • Re-engineer assets •  Ease of inspection •  Remove failure mode 18 Asset Management Decisions Diagrams: Institute of Asset Management
  19. 19. Degradation Models: Prediction Tools •  Degradation tools use historic trends to predict failure •  BUT need to use appropriate algorithms and levels 19 Asset Management Decisions
  20. 20. Criticality: Active Assets • Operational redundancy / potential train delays • Number of “asset” moves • Ease of access for inspection and maintenance 20 Asset Management Decisions Trains Over PointsLamp/LED Operations
  21. 21. Criticality: Passive Assets • Turnouts • High value • Access constraints • Dynamic forces • Transitions to/from structures • Changes in track stiffness • Access constraints • Curvature • Tolerances, including OLE interface • Ballast migration 21 Asset Management Decisions
  22. 22. Intervention Identification • Identify causes of poor track quality • Target correct intervention • Validate work has had planned effect 22 Asset Management Decisions
  23. 23. Efficient Planning: Clustering • Clustering by geography, time and/or work type • More efficient planning and delivery • Fix early with less damage to repair – no need to replace • Fix late but before failure and planned – no fire fighting • Need confidence in predicted degradation rate • Maintain safe railway • Optimise asset life 23 Asset Management Decisions Reduce maintenance and planning costs by improved assessment and more informed planning with assistance from models Use PREDICTION to Schedule Plant well in Advance Fix Before £ Reduce maintenance costs by bringing “fire- fighting” under control Go Fix Now! £
  24. 24. Technology Solution Toolbox • Improved information • Install low cost monitoring equipment • Low maintenance intervention • Re-engineer to eliminate failure modes • Reduce access requirements • Reduce intervention frequency 24 Asset Management Decisions
  25. 25. Costs and Benefits • Asset management costs • Depends on starting point • Level of automation investment already • Typically less than 5% of maintenance costs • Asset management benefits • Depends on starting point • LICB indicated > 50% variability • Typically reduces maintenance costs by 10 – 20% 25 Asset Management Decisions
  26. 26. Summary 26 What is Asset Management? Whole Life Cycle Cost Models Asset Condition Information Asset Management Decisions

  28. 28. Summary 28 Deliver business objectives – safety, availability and reliability at an affordable cost Whole Life Cycle includes infrastructure cost, access regime plus cost of poor reliability Asset Condition Information Asset Management Decisions
  29. 29. Summary 29 Deliver business objectives – safety, availability and reliability at an affordable cost Whole Life Cycle includes infrastructure cost, access regime plus cost of poor reliability Information must be accurate, repeatable, frequently taken and user friendly Asset Management Decisions
  30. 30. Summary 30 Deliver business objectives – safety, availability and reliability at an affordable cost Whole Life Cycle includes infrastructure cost, access regime plus cost of poor reliability Information must be accurate, repeatable, frequently taken and user friendly Good decisions based on good degradation prediction and well planned interventions
