Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance


Everyone knows the six Ps of planning. Whether your objectives are to meet project milestones or to get more from your current assets, MRG enhances your chances of success. MRG provides the proper perspective to prepare for and prevent project pitfalls.

EAM is inherently cross-functional and multi-disciplinary. Success depends on detailed insight not only into your culture, processes and technology but also into how each of these facets relates to the others. MRG brings the deep industry experience and methodologies that enable us to evaluate where you are today and guide you to the optimal path to successful EAM implementation or physical asset health improvement.

MRG will help you get your bearings using a framework that is based on the SMRP body of knowledge. But we also know the language and practices of large implementation projects and how to coordinate engineering activities with them. We will review:

  • Workforce skills and attitudes to support a best practice EAM model
  • Workflows
  • Timeframes
  • Internal and external resources
  • And more…
