CUTTING CLIENT’S COST[ssba]
BERG Engineering specialises in maximising the life span of large-scale asset and plant investments by providing intelligent asset lifecycle management.
The company’s asset optimisation program (AOP) is a unique program that facilitates the end-to-end management of agreed rotable asset classes. It is specifically designed to maximise equipment performance and reliability which in turn reduces operating and repair costs.
Berg has worked with clients to achieve reduced operating costs; in the last financial year alone, it helped clients achieve a 19 per cent saving by utilising its tailored AOP.
The unique program facilitates the end-to-end management of agreed rotable asset classes.
Cost reduction targets are established and agreed at the outset of the program and then assessed quarterly after that.
Berg’s AOP provides clients with both immediate and ongoing benefits. Cost savings are not only delivered through competitive pricing while still meeting warranty and design criteria but savings are also achieved as Berg gains information about service life and asset parts as they rotate through its facility.
Clients can expect to achieve cost savings in the realm of between 10 and 15 per cent (on consumable and simple items) however, this may increase as much as 20 to 30 per cent on difficult and complex spare parts like castings, gears, and pump impellers.
AOP is a modular solution and therefore it can be implemented and applied to a discrete piece of equipment, before being expanded to include additional assets upon meeting agreed targets.
“In our experience, proving the AOP’s value-adding capability with a single asset class is the best way to quickly build our clients’ confidence, at minimal perceived risk,” the company stated.
