Our Services

Operational, Maintenance and Engineering Services to regulated industries nationwide

We pride ourselves on our expert knowledge of pre-operations requirements for the transition of major projects into fully compliant and operational facilities including the synergies we bring to the integration of new assets into operational plant, processes and systems.

We provide innovative O&M solutions throughout normal operations to extend asset life, productivity and regulatory compliance. Our services cover full asset lifecycle stages including post operational and decommissioning activities.

The Key to any successful project is the smooth handover from the project team to the end user (Client).

Projects deliver capability that can be used by the Client to realise the benefits that the project was initiated for.

Projects are required to deliver capability which is readily available to the end-user upon completion. Project Handover is only achieved when every element of the Project Functional Specification is complete and all required Operations and Maintenance requirements have been implemented.

COMS provide the capability to either manage the full delivery of the project handover requirements or support a project team in the completion of mandatory project documentation.  This may be life time records compilation, configuration document production and update, asset transfer documentation, operations and maintenance technical documentation or other client specified requirements.

COMS are experienced in successfully handing over projects. COMS believe that a proactive approach utilising our unique handover process flow will result in an effective and efficient conclusion.  By mutually agreeing success criteria early in the project with the client produces a collaborative approach to handover.  However, whatever the project stage, COMS will offer a solution to its project handover requirements. COMS’ approach to delivery is to use a fit for purpose approach to ensure efficiency is built in from the start

 

Typical activities COMS will deliver to support Project Handover: (this list is not exhaustive)

  • Operational Acceptance Certificates.
  • Working Level Instructions (Operator Instructions, Maintenance Instructions, Safety Functional Tests, etc.)
  • Life Time Record Documentation
  • Asset Walk down and Inspection
  • Transfer Certificates
  • Asset Registration
  • Spares Inventories
  • Reservations Management
  • O&M Manuals
  • Maintenance Prompts

Professional Pre-Operations Support is critical to the successful delivery of any Project or Task.

Successful transition of People, Plant and Processes will result in a Soft Landing for Projects

Pre-Operations ensure that People, Plant and Processes are fit for purpose and facilitate the project’s transition into its operational phase. This will result in benefits being realised from the project investment at the earliest opportunity in accordance with its success criteria.

COMS provide the capability to either manage the full delivery of Pre-Operations requirements on behalf of the client or main contractor or can integrate with existing teams for a collaborative approach.  COMS pre-operations specialists hold a wealth of experience in this field and can guarantee a professional and thorough approach.

We are experienced in scoping out the most appropriate and fit for purpose solution in order to achieve successful outcomes.  COMS achieve this through strong and inclusive stakeholder engagement and managed facilitation. We investigate and gain agreement of what deliverables are required for each of the key elements for project success i.e., People, Plant, Process, Operations, Maintenance, Engineering, Asset Care & Training and that these are optimised by using our unique knowledge and experience in project delivery & handover in highly regulated industries.

Key to this is the agreement of success criteria with the client in the early phases of a project to ensure a common understanding of the required end state.

The successful operation of a plant or process is fundamental to realising return on investment of the design intent.

Continuous support to ensure business as usual is uninterrupted and improved

Operations Support ensures that People, Plant and Processes are baselined to deliver standard outputs to the customer’s demand.  This baseline is then optimised using either industry standard or bespoke Continuous Improvement tools and techniques.

COMS provide the capability to either manage the full delivery of Operations Support requirements on behalf of the client or through collaboration with a client based team.  COMS Operations Specialists hold a wealth of manufacturing experience and can guarantee a professional and thorough approach.

COMS are experienced in scoping out the most appropriate and fit for purpose solution in order to achieve successful outcomes. COMS achieve this by engaging the client and their plant personnel to define the current operating philosophy.  We will then propose workable, cost-effective solutions and approaches for Continuous Improvement.

 

Typical activities COMS will deliver as part of their Operations Support Service are: (this list is not exhaustive)

  • Training Support (Vendor Training Material* Analyse, Design, Develop, Implement (ADDI)*Training Delivery)
  • Total Productive Maintenance
  • Safety Case Support
  • Operating Philosophies
  • Task Analysis
  • Plant Modification Proposals
  • Method Statements
  • Risk Assessments
  • Visual Management Development, etc.

Asset management identifies the appropriate requirements for the development and provision of a cost-effective operation and maintenance approach across facility, system and equipment lifecycles.

Providing whole life management of physical assets

Asset life modelling provides visibility to the facility owner allowing the underpinning of annual budgets, improving plant reliability and efficient use of company resources.

COMS can, in conjunction with the facility owner, construct appropriate asset management plans, develop or review maintenance arrangements, conduct reassurance inspections, provide training, gather/interrogate operations/maintenance data, monitor plant availability and conduct regular trending.

We utilise the considerable knowledge and skills of our highly experienced multi discipline team of Operations and Maintenance professionals.  The team will engage, with minimal disruption, key client stakeholders to investigate, propose, develop and implement suitable asset management arrangements.

Once in place we will, if required, continue to review the arrangements to ensure they remain fit for purpose.

Provision of Professional Maintenance and Engineering support services are a crucial component in ensuring the successful lifecycle management of assets.

Applying proven engineering concepts to equipment and procedures in order to achieve better maintainability, reliability, and availability of equipment.

It is our underpinning belief that assets which are operated and maintained in a safe and cost effective manner will provide greater benefit to both the people within the organisation and the wider business.

COMS provide the capability to support the maintenance and engineering requirements of the end user organisation by employing a collaborative working ethos which enables us to deliver a product which can be fully integrated into existing systems and processes.  We also strive to help the client realise the potential of their physical assets and management systems by ensuring continuous improvement is championed. The COMS Maintenance and Engineering support teams hold a wealth of experience across a wide range of industries to ensure best practice is at the forefront of what we deliver.

COMS are experienced in scoping out the most appropriate and fit for purpose maintenance and engineering solutions in order to achieve an outcome which satisfies the needs of the client.  At the forefront of our delivery approach is our desire to fully understand the needs of the client and underpin our delivery output with a factual analysis of the current situation. We provide a flexible delivery approach which can be tailored to suit the needs of our client.
