To define how work is identified, authorised, planned, scheduled, executed and closed out.
To support operational goals (improving margins and throughput, and reducing costs) through delivering reliable and consistently well performing plant and equipment to operations.
To apply a systematic process in which stakeholders perform activities in a
consistent manner.
To give joint consideration and prioritisation to work by operators and maintainers, in an effort to sustain the most suitable generation of throughput.
To sustain processes which are under control in order to provide a foundation from which a strong asset management framework can be erected.
