Our services

From consulting and strategy development to implementation and support, our comprehensive services can help your business thrive.

What value do we bring?

Firstly, we bring a solid grasp of the technical, process and system elements of the mobile equipment maintenance space.

Secondly, and often as important as the first, we bring a view to the table that is not diluted by the day-to-day requirements of running an operation.

We bring decades of industry experience to the team - having run large maintenance teams and fleets in challenging environments, we understand how busy things can get and how easy it is to lose track of the longer range “important” stuff while being drawn into “today’s critical” things.

For the teams involved, we fully understand and appreciate that running and maintaining a mobile fleet is a taxing and busy job.

Maintenance Performance Assessments

We conduct a thorough off-site data review coupled with an on-site assessment to provide clients with a benchmark review. This review identifies potential areas for improvement across various aspects of your operations, including equipment downtime, maintenance planning and execution, facilities, reliability, supply chain, and component performance. Our goal is to equip you with practical steps to enhance your performance and reduce costs. By focusing on these key areas, we ensure that your operations are efficient, effective, and aligned with your long-term objectives.

Long range planning support

We offer ongoing long-range planning support tailored to your needs. For remote sites, we start by crafting a comprehensive 24-month plan based on your site-specific inputs. Each month, we update this plan and hand it over to your team, who then handle the short and medium-range planning, from work order creation to execution. This service allows your team to focus on immediate tasks while we keep an eye on the long-term objectives, ensuring a continuous alignment of your operations with future goals

Strategy Development

Birchwood Advisory assists clients in crafting key elements of their overall asset management strategy. This includes maintenance strategy, supply chain strategy, and equipment replacement strategy. Our focus is on instilling a long-term perspective for life-of-mine planning and ensuring alignment throughout the organization, particularly in managing large mobile equipment fleets. We believe in the power of strategic planning to streamline operations, enhance efficiency, and ensure that every aspect of your business is working towards a common goal..

Shutdown: Post completion reviews

At Birchwood Advisory, we offer a comprehensive post-shutdown review service. We analyze the period leading up to the shutdown, examining aspects such as equipment reliability, long-range planning, reliability inputs, spares and logistics processes, and budget planning. We also delve into job preparation, setup, and the execution of the shutdown itself. Our thorough review identifies concrete areas for improvement. With our insights and recommendations, you can implement effective strategies to ensure smoother, more efficient shutdowns in the future, ultimately enhancing your operations and reducing costs.
