Supportability Analysis Services
ASI is an internationally recognized leader in the Supportability field, developing innovative tools and processes to support asset managers across the globe. We provide supportability solutions and services in all phases of the asset life-cycle.
Supportability is the ability and effectiveness of an asset, along with its support system, to achieve its desired performance over the life of the asset. Supportability Optimization is the process of maximizing the effectiveness of the support system in terms of asset performance and cost within given constraints. In other words, it is getting what you want out of your physical assets for the least cost over the long-haul, based on robust analytics, not just guesses. Supportability Optimization will answer the question: “Where will my next dollar provide the most impact on asset performance?”
- Influenced by both the design of the asset and the design of the support system
- Impacted by operating environment
- A function of Reliability, Availability, Cost, and Safety
Supportability, like reliability and maintainability, is both a measure of effectiveness and a related discipline that endeavors to maximize it. Supportability analysis in the Government and Defense sectors is defined in several prescriptive standards such as the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) SAE-GEIA-STD-0007 (Logistics Product Data), SAE-TA-0017 (Product Support Analysis), and MIL-STD-1388-1/2. We have taken the best of the processes defined in these standards and modified them to be efficiently applied outside of the Government and Defense sectors and incorporated them in the next generation of Enterprise Asset Management tools.
