Asset Management

At RCA and Company Inc, the we break down an Asset Management (AM) process into 5 key stages which are:

A key process within asset management is the understanding of asset life cycle. There are four key stages of the asset management, which this section will classify and describe. The four key stages of the asset management process are:

a.  Acquisition

The first step in the acquisition process is the planning. In this stage we perform a gap analysis and benchmarking which establishes and verifies asset requirements. For your organisation. To establish the asset requirements, we evaluate the existing assets and their potential to meet service delivery needs for your organisation. The gap which is identified the specification of the assets that will be required. In this planning process our team will assist your organisation in assessing the practical sufficiency of existing assets, identifying excess or underperforming assets and estimate the options for asset provision and funding asset acquisition. Once we have completed the planning process, we will then engage in the asset specification and utilization planning as well as asset procurement planning, and this is where the RCA and Company Inc ready-to-deploy Asset Management Software comes in.

RCA and Company provides a ready-to-deploy Software for:

  • Supply, and technical support for Integrated Asset Management System
  • Provision of full on-site support for the AMS
  • Provide technical and administrative support
  • Provision of Training on the Asset Management System

Our Integrated Asset Management System assists your organisation in taking the best decision on choosing the best option to meet the requirements identified in the planning process. The acquisition process entails designing and procuring an asset ensuring cost effective acquisition and guaranteeing that the asset is fit for use. Our system will also assist decision makers within the organisation to decide if the asset to be procured will be perpetually bought or built. The system will also establish a budget for asset acquisition along with a time frame for its acquisition and a purchasing requirement. Once a decision for procurement has been made, and a budget provided, our team will assist the organisation to expedite the process to make sure that all acquisition process activities are completed in order to meet organization objectives.

b.  Building and Deploying

In the building and Commission phase we will test the asset to see if they are functioning properly. In this phase, RCA and Company will review and assure the client that all systems and components of an asset are designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained according to the operational requirements of the client. We do commissioning, not only of new assets but also to existing assets and their sub-systems. Within the commissioning process we will perform a set of engineering techniques and procedures to check, inspect and test every operational component of the assets and this will include aspects such as Asset definition, asset hierarchy, asset classification, asset register development, Asset Geo Spatial Tagging, asset verification and inspection. Building and commissioning activities in cover all aspects of asset management from basic and detailed design, procurement, construction and assembly until the final handover of the unit to the Client. One of the Key processes within the Commissioning phase is the compilation and review of GRAP Compliant Asset Registers as detailed below:
