PDP Consulting Pty Ltd – Peter Powell – Principal, is a professional with over 40 years of experience in Asset Management across a broad range of icon companies including AngloGoldAshanti, BHPBilliton, WMC Resources, New Parliament House Canberra, Qantas, Alcoa and many other public and government organisations in Australia, as well as International companies based in South Africa, Ghana and Brazil.
Extensive experience gained in the front line with “hands on” application of Asset Management for routine operations as well as in the management of Major Outages in the Steel and Mining industries. A strong track record in system and business process design, implementation and continuous improvement, provides a sound base to assist organisations to improve in many areas. This experience enables us to engage from Board level through to work front technicians to gain their respect and trust, and to ensure that improvement initiatives are “owned” by the business.
Our preferred approach is to engage with the business from project initiation through to successful completion to realise significant improvements, share the successes, and to develop long lasting relationships.
Assets managed effectively, will contribute significantly to reliability, throughput, production performance and ultimately to the overall profitability of an organisation. This requires sound business processes, good supporting systems, and a culture that supports compliance and encourages continuous improvement. Often, organisations know what is required to be done, and simply require a consultant to act as a facilitator who is not engaged in the day to day running of the business, to plan, facilitate and implement actions to enable these benefits.
