Change management 'vital for asset performance optimisation'

28 December 2011

Companies in the industrial automation sector will need to dedicate focus to managing change when attempting to optimise their asset performance management efforts.

This is according to a new report from LNS Research, highlighted by Automation World, which suggested that many firms in this sector will be looking to enhance the reliability of key assets, while improving collaboration between operations and maintenance.

Matt Littlefield, president and principal analyst at the organisation, stated that this is taking place due to growing pressure to improve returns on assets and operating margins, but is also leading to alterations in management style for many firms.

As such, companies have been called upon to pay attention to the need for change management to organise the transition from a reactive to predictive approach in maintenance.

Mr Littlefield said it is vital that "the right metrics, incentives and culture are established to ensure that maintenance and production are on the same page".

This comes after a Gartner report earlier this month highlighted the crucial role change management will play in dealing with risks arsing from the current eurozone crisis.
