Improving performance and operational effectiveness

The pressure on utility companies to deliver greater efficiency and operational effectiveness is intensifying. An era of higher prices, stretched supply lines and investment in expanded and diversified infrastructure is putting significant additional cost into the value chain. At the same time, companies can expect continued and, indeed, greater resistance to costs being passed on to end-users.

Companies need to look at a variety of strategies – technological, financial, operational, and fiscal – to improve efficiency. On the operational front, for example, companies must minimise risk in asset security, serviceability, performance availability, reliability and restoration after breakdown. Smart asset management is becoming increasingly important, especially in the context of capital expenditure programmes at at time when so much infrastructure needs to be built.
