Mission description

Within an approach of continuous improvement, our client entered since a few years within a project of improvement of their Asset Management processes. This project stressed the need for an advanced cost model to evaluate Asset Management decisions and to forecast the future maintenance costs.
The general objective of the SAP Cost Model for Assets is to be an enabler to make all assets related decisions in the most cost efficient way. Moreover the cost model should be an enabler to perform forecasting and follow up of forecast of maintenance cost via the use of activities and cost drivers.
This project will be structured in the short and long term in different streams. Within the short term our client want to build the concept of the Cost Model together with the Asset Managers.  The most important challenge is to find the balance between the work load of the field and the need to capture ‘detailed’ financial information on asset level as requested by the Asset Managers.
