What is a facility lifecycle audit and why have I never heard of it before?
You are probably used to the terms “condition assessment” or “building inspection” when it comes to identifying the condition of your plant and the costs associated with correcting any deficiencies. The idea of a facility lifecycle audit was developed in the early 1990s in response to the shortcomings of condition assessments, in particular, their inability to accurately identify needs past 3-4 years, their complete reliance on subjective analysis, their complexity, and their high cost. As with any new idea, consumer acceptance takes time but during the course of the past 15 years we have been able to effectively explain the advantages of facility lifecycle audits to 100s of clients around the world. Due to the high ROI generated by using facility lifecycle audits you will see more and more users taking advantage of the benefits of this approach.
