What is asset management?
ISO 55000, the set of standards defining approaches to asset management, defines asset management as:
coordinated activity of an organisation to realise value from assetsISO 55000:2014
and an asset as:
item, thing or entity that has potential or actual value to an organisationISO 55000:2014
Good asset management is more than ‘managing assets’ – it is a management system balancing the short, medium and long term needs of the organisation. Asset management sustainably delivers the asset based outputs of an organisation. For more background on asset management, a good place to start is the Asset Management Anatomy developed by the Institute of Asset Management.
DPA staff have extensive experience of asset management in various contexts. We are recognised leaders in asset information management thinking – a key aspect of asset management.
As active members of the Institute of Asset Management we have helped develop the Asset Management Anatomy document, led the development of the Asset Information and Demand Analysis SSG documents. We are closely involved in the development of a range of BSI and ISO standards relating to asset management and BIM.
Our extensive knowledge and independent approach means that we rapidly deliver value to our clients.
