SALVO Training Workshop | Public Courses

The Workshop

With billions of pounds of investment needed to address aging plant and infrastructure, it has never been more important to identify, prioritize and justify what replacements are needed and when, or how best to extend the life of existing assets. This intensive training workshop shows you how this can be achieved – for any asset types, with or without detailed technical data. 

The SALVO Process is a generic, practical and proven method for ensuring that the right problems are addressed, appropriate solutions identified and a clear business case developed for the optimal intervention plan. This 2-day interactive course introduces the rigorous 6-step SALVO Process for optimizing strategies and decisions in the management of physical assets.

Developed over 4 years by a multi-industry consortium of leading organisations in utilities, transport, process and manufacturing sectors, the SALVO Process breaks new ground in the disciplined evaluation and business case justification of what to do, and when. Moreover it addresses the human factors involved, and provides a transparent way of turning technical knowledge into economic language and business value. The workshop is highly interactive, drawing on a broad range of practical, hands-on examples.

Who should attend?

Asset managers, operations, engineering and maintenance managers, business leaders, operations and engineering directors, capital investment planners, finance managers/directors, and anyone who wants to improve consistency, transparency and confidence in asset management decision-making are welcome to attend this workshop.

Workshop fees include a FREE copy of the book 'Asset Management decision-making: The SALVO process'.
