What Is Asset Management

“Asset Management is the enabler for an organisation to manage their physical assets in order to achieve and deliver outcomes that satisfy an organisation’s stakeholders. Essentially it is the science of how the right decisions are made, at the right time, by the right people in an organisation to deliver the value. The better your Asset Management, the more control you have of your asset’s destiny!”


In order to deliver value from any physical asset it is imperative to know:

  1. Stakeholders requirements.
  2. The current condition of the asset.
  3. The current performance of the asset.
  4. The future of the asset.

Throughout the lifecycle of any asset, key decisions will need to be made that balances cost, risk and performance. These decisions will be determined based upon an organisation’s People, Systems, Processes and Plant. By combing an organisation’s Corporate, Financial, Operations, Engineering and Maintenance requirements with supporting IT systems and analytics provides the basis of informed decision.

Asset Management provides both the science and art of making the right decision based on applying the best techniques and assessment using the best information available. No matter what stage of an asset lifecycle you are at, you can benefit from making informed decision using best practice techniques applied by seasoned practitioners.

These principles will directly influence systems and plans.

There is a focus on cost, risk and performance when making and measuring decisions.
