Asset Management

Understanding the Value of Your Assets

We manage capital (physical, enterprise, etc) assets because they deliver value. If we do good Capital Asset Management™ we will understand the value delivered by our assets, not just the depreciated cost and contribution. By understanding that better, we allow for future investment to sustain the value forecast from the asset's functionality.

Asset Management refers to the whole life cycle activities required to obtain an optimal balance of performance, risk, cost and opportunity with physical and their related intellectual assets. It is described in the international standards, ISO 55000 (Overview), 55001 (Requirements) and 55002 (Guidance) published in 2014. Many utilities (water, electric, gas and telecoms) and public sector organizations (infrastructure managers) are being required to apply good asset management practices by regulation. Industries where public safety and cost effectiveness are major concerns such as food, pharma and facilities management have all been early adopters. Resource industries (mining, oil and gas and mineral processing) are in the early stages of adopting all or parts of the standards. Other industry groups will eventually follow suit and the business case for good asset management becomes evident.
