SLSMC Asset Management ISO 55000 Journey

Presenter: Iqbal Biln
Manager, Corporate Technical Programs, St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corp.
Managing Seaway Assets in a sustainable manner requires an Asset Management System. Traditional maintenance, reliability and engineering practices in silos are not good enough. We need a management system that will go beyond just great maintenance, great reliability, and great engineering. We need a management system that will bring the operations and maintenance pieces together with the infrastructure piece, together with the finance piece, together with the IT and HR pieces. We need a management system with an overarching framework and governance structure that will support value-based investment decisions. We need a management system that will allow SLSMC to maximize value from its assets and infrastructure for sustainable seaway service delivery. And finally, we need to build a culture that will sustain our effort over many years. As an organization, we have been doing asset management for years and we have been adopting and implementing good industry practices. However, to maintain best in class asset management practices and to evolve within the industry, we are committed to aligning with ISO 55001. This presentation will outline the approach SLSMC has adopted known as the Asset Management Eco-System (AMES). The Eco-System is a comprehensive system that aims to manage assets in a holistic way by encompassing all the functional groups of the organization
