How do you keep maintenance costs down and asset performance up? How do you stop reacting and start planning? How do you replace chaos with structure?

It starts with a framework. You need an outline of the environment you want to create—an outline you can follow when implementing your organization’s new, systematic approach to asset management.

Creating a framework isn’t just a smart idea for injecting order into your operation. It’s an essential first step in developing an asset management system, à la ISO 55000.

SwainSmith’s asset management system framework is comprehensive and ISO 55000 compliant. It organizes asset management into a logical structure, with all of the processes, roles, and other elements clearly laid out.

SwainSmith’s Asset Management Framework

Developing a comprehensive asset management framework requires thought and experience. Not every organization has the requisite skills to do it right the first time. So we’ve done the work for you. SwainSmith has advantages that most organizations don’t have access to:

  • 20 years of consulting experience with asset-intensive operations
  • an insider’s knowledge of ISO 55000, ISO 55001, and ISO 55002
  • an extensive library of industry-accepted processes for asset management

We’ve taken those assets and used them to develop a thorough framework for asset management systems. Our framework covers all of the key business functions and documentation areas for asset management. It lists every component you need to implement a complete, ISO 55001 compliant management system for your physical assets. And the best part? It’s free.
