Asset Performance Management

Manage your equipment at every stage of its lifecycle

GP Strategies’ approach to APM is unique. It’s a fully comprehensive, turnkey solution that extends beyond software and focuses on integrating business processes, organizational structure, and workforce optimization into the design. It centers on maximizing the APM lifecycle—the end-to-end optimization of assets to ensure they reach their full potential. 

With APM Optimize™, we’ve distilled our best-in-class knowledge, service delivery, and innovative software to develop a sustainable program that covers the entire APM lifecycle in one powerful solution. Aligned with international standards such as  ISO 55000 series, ISO 14224, ISO 8000, KKS, SAE (SAE JA 1011 & SAE JA1010 – RCM/Maintainability standards), SMRP, and IAM, we work with clients to connect their APM strategy with knowledge and excellence, develop a road map of prioritization, and implement proven methodologies to ensure operational growth and success.

Optimizing the Asset Lifecycle with APM Optimize™

A successful APM program’s framework should support the entire asset lifecycle: from the time it is engineered, built, and installed, to being operated, maintained, and then retired. To help the asset meet or exceed its design life expectancy, GP Strategies’ views APM as a continuous process with opportunities for improvement throughout the journey.

At any point in an asset’s lifecycle, the design, operation, and maintenance strategy may need to be reviewed and adjusted to ensure full asset optimization is achieved.
