CONSULTING SERVICES

We believe that consulting is about creating a partnership. All our consulting services be it technical or strategic involve a deep understanding of our client’s needs and aspirations.

 

Every organisation is unique. Facing its own challenges with its own goals. Our approach is to clearly understand those challenges and goals to craft effective asset management solutions.

 

Together we develop solutions that meet objectives in an accountable manner.

 
 

IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS

All organisations have improvement opportunities that will unlock value. Typically, the approach used to unlock these opportunities is through a traditional waterfall project. However, using a short duration, agile approach, Gaussian has delivered rapid and sustainable results typically over 50, 60 & 100 day periods. 

 

These are short, sharp focused campaigns focused on specific goals where a motivated cross functional team march towards an outcome day by day with regular accountable reviews.

ASSESSMENTS

Every organisation is on its own journey. The role of the assessment is to position the organisation on the map to orientate towards its ultimate destination. Assessments detail how organisations are performing against their strategy. Based on these findings it can trim and adjust its course to meet business objectives and maximize returns.

 

Gaussian have developed an assessment approach and methodology that creates an end-to-end understanding of an organisation’s Asset Management maturity or compliance.

 

Gaussian offer a range of predefined assessments and audits within the Asset Management, Reliability and ISO 55001 arenas. Our methodology and tooling is flexible enough to accommodate industry specific and local requirements.

DASHBOARDS & ANALYTICS

Effective Asset Management is all about informed decisions made on sound data.

 

One of the cornerstones of our practice is the goal of enabling our clients to make these informed decisions.

We use the latest technology and in-house tools to integrate and analyse large volumes of data efficiently.
