On the Road to Enterprise Asset Management: The Importance of a Common Language
Sapna Shah | Reliability Engineering and Asset Management for the Department of Buses
New York City Transit Authority | Metropolitan Transportation Authority
EAM – effectively governing your assets – is essential to realizing value through the balance of cost, risk, and performance. With an organization as immense as the Metropolitan Transportation Authority [MTA], creating a “reliability roadmap” that all stakeholders understand, buy into, and follow can be challenging; MTA is North America’s largest transportation network, serving 15.3 million people over a 5,000-square-mile area, and comprising the nation’s largest bus fleet, with more than 5,700 buses traveling almost 3,000 route miles.
This session will guide you through how MTA is building their EAM initiatives for long-term success and sustainability – beginning with the use of a universal language, and developing visibility in observing a common vision, accountability in monitoring progress, and open communications in answering concerns and cultivating continuing support.
