BMT Course Tackles Defence Asset Management Challenge

BMT along with Australia’s Asset Institute is helping Australia’s Defence maritime sector tackle one of the most complicated and critical challenges with its Introduction to Fleet Life Cycle Management course. 

The course will introduce participants to Asset Management and explain how internationally recognised methods, practices and principles can best be applied to the Royal Australian Navy in support of acquisition, ongoing sustainment efforts and maritime operations across the entire Capability Life Cycle. Special emphasis will be placed on Seaworthiness, Australian Maritime Logistics Doctrine and whole-of-life management of ships and submarines. 

The course will be presented by two of BMT’s Fleet Life Cycle Management experts who have a combined 60+ years of naval operations and maintenance experience.  Internationally recognised Asset Management experts from Australia’s Asset Institute will present keynote addresses each day as well as conduct talk-back sessions where course attendees can engage in two-way dialogue with academics, commercial asset management practitioners and leading thinkers in the disciplines of Engineering Asset Management. 

“Asset Management is increasingly being recognised as a way to efficiently manage all aspects of Australia’s naval defence programs,” Mr Lemerande said, “and has been mandated by Defence and Navy policy.” 
“This intensive five-day course encompasses knowledge from academia, industry, allied navies and professional asset management societies.  It represents perhaps the best way for any Defence maritime industry professional to get introduced to Asset Management and how it is best applied to ships and submarines,” he said. 
“Our course speakers and presenters between them have over 200 years of Asset Management and Life Cycle Management experience,” Mr Lemerande said. 

BMT is the only defence orientated member of Australia’s Asset Institute, which brings together Asset Management expertise from across the country. 

“Asset Management is one of the most effective ways to manage performance, cost and risk, which is especially important for the large projects being undertaken by the Royal Australian Navy” Dr. Joseph Mathew, CEO of the Asset Institute said. 
“I commend BMT for the important work they are doing in this area and encourage all relevant industry individuals to participate in the course,” Dr. Mathew said. 

The Introduction to Fleet Life Cycle Management course will be held in Canberra on 18-22 February, and in the Perth metropolitan area on, 1–5 April 2019.
