    What is an asset?

    How do physical assets differ from financial assets?

    Why should engineers be concerned with physical assets?

  • Black Saturday Victorian Bushfires, 7th Feb 2009

  • 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission Recommendations

    Recommendation 28 The State (through Energy Safe Victoria) require distribution businesses to change

    their asset inspection standards and procedures to require that all SWER lines and all 22-kilovolt feeders in areas of high bushfire risk are inspected at least every three years.

    Recommendation 29 The State (through Energy Safe Victoria) require distribution businesses to review

    and modify their current practices, standards and procedures for the training and auditing of asset inspectors to ensure that registered training organisations provide adequate theoretical and practical training for asset inspectors.

    Recommendation 30 The State amend the regulatory framework for electricity safety to require that

    distribution businesses adopt, as part of their management plans, measures to reduce the risks posed by hazard treesthat is, trees that are outside the clearance zone but that could come into contact with an electric power line having regard to foreseeable local conditions.

  • Class Action Thousands more likely to join Black Saturday class action The Age Date January 11, 2013 More than 10,000 victims of the Kilmore East-Kinglake Black Saturday bushfire could take part in the class action against the electricity company deemed responsible for the deadly blaze, a court has heard. The victims involved come from five municipalities - Nillumbik, Mitchell, Yarra Ranges, Whittlesea and Murrindindi. The legal action is being brought against electricity company SP AusNet, trading as SPI Electricity, who owned and had responsibility for maintaining of the power lines that caused the blaze on February 7, 2009. The fire claimed more lives than any other bushfire in Australia's history, with 119 people killed, 1242 homes destroyed and a total of 125,383 hectares burned. The Victorian Bushfire Royal Commission found the blaze was caused by a faulty powerline owned and maintained by the electricity company, trading as SP AusNet. The total losses sustained in the bushfire was estimated at the Royal Commission hearings as high as $1 billion.

  • About this course

    In Semester 1 2013, this course will be run in parallel with the elective course "Mine Asset Management and Services" developed for Mining Education Australia.

    To achieve this, the course has been divided into three parts A, B and C.

    Part A (weeks 1 to 7 inclusive) is common to all engineering students and deals with physical asset management fundamentals.

    Part B (weeks 8 to 12 inclusive) is for students enrolled in Mining Engineering, and focuses on Mine Services.

    Part C (weeks 8 to 12 inclusive) is for non-mining engineering students and will be run as a series of computer laboratory practicals dealing with advanced asset management issues.

  • Course Aims (all students) Engineering assets comprise property (buildings), plant (equipment)

    and infrastructure (roads, railways, and electrical transmission lines, for instance).

    Throughout your professional careers, you will find yourselves

    having to make decisions concerning the design, acquisition, maintenance and renewal of engineering assets. The challenge is to optimise owning and operating costs over the life cycle of an engineering asset.

    This course aims to impart the fundamentals of: (i) reliability engineering; (ii) maintenance engineering & management; and (iii) optimisation of component and capital equipment

    replacement decisions to third and fourth year engineering students (non mining students).

  • Course Aims (mining students)

    Mine maintenance and services are responsible for between 40 and 70 percent of the operating cost of a surface mine, and 20 to 50 percent of the operating cost of an underground mine.

    The quality of maintenance programs affects the productive capacity of mining operations.

    In the course of your professional careers, you will find themselves dealing with maintenance and service related issues such as: working with teams to de-bottleneck productive processes; preparing and checking maintenance budgets; administrating maintenance contracts; and deciding on mine dewatering or electrical distribution layouts.

    The proposed course covers the principles of mine maintenance and services, including electrical distribution systems, conveyor systems, hoisting systems and mine dewatering.

  • Learning outcomes At the end of this course, the students will be able to demonstrate an

    understanding of: 1 (Reliability engineering) Distinguish between functions, functional failures and

    failure modes. Be familiar with basic reliability analysis, equipment performance indices and improvement methods.

    2 (Maintenance management) Ability to design and implement maintenance support systems for engineering assets, including specifying preventive, predictive, proactive and corrective tasks within an overall maintenance strategy.

    3 (Component and capital equipment replacement) Undertake quantified risk assessments for optimising maintenance decisions and apply life cycle costing and equivalent annual cost (EAC) methods for optimizing capital equipment replacement.

    4 Mine Services - Be familiar with electrical power distribution fundamentals, mine dewatering principles, conveyor and hoisting system limitations.

  • Graduate attributes This course will contribute to the development of the following

    Graduate Attributes: appropriate technical knowledge having advanced problem solving, analysis and synthesis skills with

    the ability to tolerate ambiguity being able to think and work individually and in teams listening, influencing, motivating and communication skills basic business and management skills awareness of opportunities to ad value through engineering and the

    need for continuous improvement being able to work and communicate effectively across discipline

    boundaries having HSEC consciousness being active life-long learners.
