Energy and Utilities

Energy and utilities companies are not like the products they deliver. Electric, water, wastewater and natural gas—the flow at the customer’s end is simple and straightforward. But the behind-the-scenes generation, transmission and distribution of these services can be extraordinarily complex. And recent trends are only increasing the challenges companies face. These complex challenges affect all your core assets—physical, human and technology.

For years, physical infrastructures grew with the towns and cities they served, and now they can be a century or more old. A stable workforce stayed with the company for years, but now it is gearing up for retirement, taking knowledge and experience with it. Technologies implemented for individual business units conquer specialized needs, but in doing so they have created operational and data silos that stand in the way of required company-wide processes.

The challenges of infrastructure, people and applications

Energy and utility companies today must reduce the cost of managing assets while simultaneously maintaining reliability. They can no longer afford the liability and maintenance costs of aging physical infrastructures and disparate systems across operational and IT environments. They cannot risk losing operational knowledge and skills through a “brain drain” of retiring employees.

To meet the challenges, energy and utility companies need to address the complete life cycles of resources that span operations with asset management solutions that can:

  • Manage and maintain an aging infrastructure by:

    • Extending asset life and maximizing return on assets while meeting financial and operational compliance requirements and mitigating risk.

    • Enabling condition-based maintenance to reduce asset downtime and extend useful life.

    • Supporting new smart grid initiatives, such as meter asset management for smart meters.

  •  Control the “brain drain” among employees facing retirement by:

    • Capturing the knowledge and critical skills of long-time employees with proven workflow, enforced best practices and training initiatives.

    • Optimizing processes and allowing a shrinking workforce to work more efficiently and cost effectively.

  •  Consolidate operational applications by:

    • Supporting work and asset management for all lines of business—transmission, distribution and generation for electric, water, wastewater and natural gas.

    • Allowing a single system to manage all types of assets including production, facilities, transportation and IT.

    • Providing a lower total cost of ownership, one version of the truth and best practices enforced with standard software at all sites.

    • Reducing the need to acquire, implement, train for and maintain siloed solutions from different vendors to manage different parts of the asset and service management infrastructure.

    • Enabling employees with an innovative, fully integrated supply chain management system designed for asset-intensive industries.

Asset management produces real results

An effective asset management solution can provide quantifiable results for energy and utilities companies. From IBM client experience:

  • A major electric and water utility achieved a 25 percent inventory reduction and US $33 million savings.

  • A power generation utility achieved a five percent reduction in planned overhauls and eliminated five percent of forced outages, saving US $4.6 million annually.

  • A world leader in waste-to-energy production achieved greater visibility into asset conditions, to help achieve 91.6 percent facility availability.


“With some changes made into the company, more advance technology is needed to suit the necessity. We at TALIAN mean our business down to the core, helping you to build the better performance of the company”


In the traditional manufacturing, machine setup and product changeover times are lengthy and the conventional wisdom is to manufacture products in large batches to minimize the incidence of changeovers and associated lost production time. It is also conventional to operate with large buffer stocks of raw materials, semi-finished and finished goods.

Asset management that goes beyond performance ceilings

Asset management maximizes the performance of fixed, physical or capital assets that have a direct and significant impact on achieving corporate objectives. Companies and organizations depend on vital assets to drive their business. However, they often see them as individual, standalone objects operating in the background. In reality, companies comprise a collection of strategic assets that are tightly interdependent and exist as a single system that should be managed as a unified enterprise at higher levels in the organization.

“Asset reliability is critical to a successful lean manufacturing implementation.”

Strategic asset maintenance management strives to maximize asset performance for the lowest total cost of ownership while taking into account risk, safety and compliance issues, and to manage those assets with a limited set of resources.

To get continuous systems to flow for more than a minute or two at a time, every asset must be completely “capable.” That is, it must always be in proper condition to run when needed and every part made must be right. The reliability of the assets is the responsibility of the maintenance department. Asset management helps companies maximize asset reliability and performance for a lean manufacturing implementation.

Lean manufacturing and risk

The impact of lean thinking on the risk profile of a company can be explained in terms of insurance. If you consider buffer stock as a type of insurance policy that can reduce the risk that a customer order cannot be shipped, and the implementation of the lean principles drives the company to remove these buffer stocks, then the risk of non-delivery increases. The company needs to take out another insurance policy in the form of more reliable assets that help to mitigate this risk. Asset management systems help companies to implement better asset management programs that help to increase asset reliability.

While implementing an asset management program requires people who have the right skills and experience, investing in a software solution to support the program can provide significant benefits, including:

  • Reduction of the number of systems required

  • Reduction of total cost of ownership

  • Reduction of the number of integration points

  • Visibility of asset and workforce performance using a common set of standards for benchmarking

  • Flexibility to adjust the solution to changing requirements and work processes

  • Embedded best practices leading to easy adoption by the users


“Integrated system is not an option anymore. It is a necessity for manufacturing company to overcome the present challenges and minimalize the risk. TALIAN can help your company with maintenance and integrated solution as such.”
