Asset Management 101 for New Starters and Non-Engineers


In contrast with traditional, ingrained engineering disciplines, the field of infrastructure asset management is relatively new, having emerged in the 1980s and 1990s in response to a need to manage infrastructure assets in a coordinated, systematic fashion.

With significant portions of Australia's infrastructure portfolio expected to require investment in the next 10 to 20 years, the need for organisations to adopt holistic asset management practices is becoming increasingly apparent.

Organisations have implemented various business structures to meet this need, ranging from the creation of dedicated asset management teams to the incorporation of asset management roles and responsibilities throughout existing business services, risk, and operations and maintenance teams.

Regardless of the business structure implemented, it is clear that asset management is rapidly evolving from a solely engineering-based discipline to a discipline that brings together professionals from engineering, planning, financial, information technology and human resources disciplines for the ultimate objective of realising value from an organisation's infrastructure assets.

This seminar will introduce attendees to the fundamental objectives, principles and concepts of infrastructure asset management.
