A framework for strategic infrastructure asset management

Too, Eric G. (2010) A framework for strategic infrastructure asset management. In: Definitions, concepts and scope of engineering asset management. Engineering Asset Management Review (1). Springer, London, United Kingdom, pp. 31-62. ISBN 978-1-84996-177-6


Organisations owning and managing infrastructure assets are constantly striving to obtain the greatest life time value. This led to the development of the concept of asset management to provide a systematic approach to manage nfrastructure assets. However, asset management as a discipline is still relatively new and as such lack well grounded theories. There is an urgent need to document the processes involved in the management of infrastructure assets. Through case studies, this paper aims to first, review the goals of infrastructure asset management and investigate the extent to which they reflect a business resource approach to infrastructure asset management. Second, the paper will identify the core processes of infrastructure asset management. These observed processes are then synthesised into a strategic infrastructure asset management framework to serve as a benchmark for practising manager looking to create value within their organisations.
