Portfolio of Industries

AJ Advisory Group has an excellent team of management advisors and a network of experienced consultants, all seasoned professionals who have developed their expertise in many different sectors and in diverse cultures around the world. We take great care to appoint the right advisor and/or consultant to each project to ensure the most capable blend of skills, empathy and understanding with the client. One of our key differentiators is our laser-like focus on Industry Sectors that we know and advise on every day. These include:

Health Care

There are a number of ISO standards specific to healthcare, so why ISO-55000/1/2? Instead of keeping your health care organization under its natural departments of Lab, Radiology, the Operating Room, ISO 55000/1/2 enables the organization to view the hospital as one system, where all of the operating assets are prioritized, inventoried, and assessed as a whole. This is akin to a patient visiting their Internal or Family Medicine physician prior to their specialist.

Under ISO-55000, the hospital has a cohesive and holistic view of all of the organization’s assets. The three basic values – reliability, planning & scheduling, and materials – are optimized throughout the assets’ lifetime. The purchase, use, and maintenance of all assets within the system subsequently serve the healthcare organization’s goals at all times. For the hospital building, this is different than for an MRI scanner, but they both provide a service, are needed to deliver quality patient care, and are inextricably linked. Today, management struggles with this as over the years the building becomes less and less aligned with changing healthcare innovations and processes. Smart ‘real estate management’ is required to keep the performance of the building, risks and costs in line with current healthcare practice demands. ISO-55000/1/2 is designed to ensure hospital managers have the methodology and standards in place, so that managers have the information and operational rigor to be able to be smarter with their assets.

Utilities (Public & Private)

Andrew James Advisory Group recognizes the utility industry is in a state of flux. We have the advisors and consultants with extensive operations technology, business process, regulatory and utility IT expertise in Generation and Transmission & Distribution who can assist as you seek solutions for the following issues:

· The impact on the aggregation of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) into a reliable grid resource.

· The proactive states’ plans to push forward on clean energy regardless of the administration’s rollback of certain EPA regulatory requirements. How can nuclear plants receive extra compensation for their carbon-free attributes?

· The impact of the New York State initiative Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) that shifts away from the traditional cost-of-service revenue model. Many state regulatory commissions are encouraging new utility revenue models and incentives.

· The need for the regulatory model to change.

· The emergence of new rate design solutions — such as time-of-use rates and demand charges — in response to utilities pushing fixed charge increases in response to DERs and stagnant load growth,

· Is Energy Storage mature enough to be considered a viable grid-scale resource?

· Policymakers looking for ways to save zero-carbon nuclear resources, with gas and renewables suppressing power prices in organized markets. Is your plant at risk?

· Continued growth and even acceleration in natural gas growth. How will this affect your generation decisions?

Oil & Gas

The oil and gas industry faces three major challenges as a result of rising global demand, volatile price swings and increasingly stringent environmental regulations:

· How to reduce costs

· How to improve the performance and extend the life of its industrial base assets

· How to improve its environmental footprint
