For Veolia, asset management is core to our business. A top priority at the strategic level, our asset management systems comply with the publicly available specification for asset management PAS55:2008.
The Veolia asset management framework is fully integrated into the company’s Business Management System. This includes finance, risk management and certification to standards for occupational health and safety (AS/NZS 4801), quality (ISO 9001) and environmental management (ISO 14001).
Why is having a strong water asset management system in place so important to our business?
Our operators are our maintenance front line, and they need to be well-equipped to effectively execute asset management tasks on a day-to-day basis, carrying out inspections and undertaking servicing and cleaning activities.
Having an effective asset management system in place allows us to identify and appropriately respond to an asset’s needs by continuously improving maintenance planning and assigning action priorities based on asset criticality and risk.
What is Veolia’s methodology for asset management?
We first use what we call VAMS, a new generation computerised maintenance management system (CMMS), which forms the basis of Veolia’s enterprise asset management system platform and maintenance plans. We use this system for scheduling, recording and analysing all maintenance activities, and further information can be found if you go to our dedicated CMMS page for more information.
In addition, we also have what we call CARMS, short for Contract Asset Renewal Management System, which is a financial management decision support tool to track long-term capital expenditure and forecasts renewal needs for our clients and sites. Please go to our dedicated CARMS page for more information.
