Overview

amis_right

MCP’s AMIS (Asset Management Information System) Benchmarking methodology was developed in response to DTI’s (Department of Trade and Industry) request for a maintenance benchmarking methodology.The original AMIS product is now over 28 years old and still going strong. In that time, it has spawned over 4,000 improvement programmes globally and our database of results lets us identify any gaps to best practice and benchmark you against other organisations within your industry sector

Approach

The AMIS process utilizes a two-part questionnaire and uses a cross-functional team who rate themselves against a series of statements of best practice. All responses can be supported by documentary evidence which means a representative benchmark is always achieved and a clear improvement plan developed. Typical outputs are shown below:

In the 28 years since its inception the AMIS service has grown into a family of benchmarks that can look specifically at areas such as:

  • Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS)
  • Project Management
  • Contract/ contractor management
  • Facilities management (hard and soft services)

The methodology is the same for all benchmarking services.

Benefits

The DTI estimated that the savings identified by AMIS in its first 10 years could have been as much as £300 million. Individual organisation have realised savings in excess of £20 million for a single site and as much as $400 million for global multinationals.

The AMIS benchmark works just as well for large multi-site organisations as it does for single site SMEs. The question is not can you afford it, rather, can you afford not to.
