Design and roll out Asset Management Framework at Tata Steel

Tata Steel, established in 1907, is among the global top ten steel companies with operations in 26 countries and is the second largest steel producer in Europe. Like all heavy industrial sites, Asset Management has to be efficient in terms of output but also in terms of costs. Tata Steel, being no different, is focusing to develop an improved Way of Working across the company.

Project goals

Whilst already working in IJmuiden, Tata Steel chose PDM to support their European operation in designing and rolling out a Company Asset Management Framework in 2010. Mainly focusing on the UK sites and supported by Group Engineering.
The total project would take more then three years until beginning 2013.

Project approach

The approach was based on two main phases:

1. Implement CAM-F Processes using a structured Change Programme
2. Detailed design & Implementation of improved Maintenance concepts & Failure Reduction Processes.


Aligning the approach across the different plants, the main deliverables per phase had to be the same.

  • During the course of 2010 – 2011, Scheduled Maintenance, Shutdown Management and Emerging Work were the key focus.
  • As of 2011 until the beginning of 2013 the development of 'blueprints' for maintenance concepts and failure reduction came on top of the existing programme.
  • Overall acceptance and buy-in were of prime importance to realise the 'ONE company approach'.
