Building capabilities for infrastructure capacity management

Too, Eric and Betts, Martin and Kumar, Arun (2009) Building capabilities for infrastructure capacity management. In: 2nd Infrastructure Theme Postgraduate Conference: Rethinking Sustainable Development: Planning, Infrastructure Engineering, Design and Managing Urban Infrastructure, 26 Mar 2009, Brisbane, Australia.


Infrastructure capacity management is the process of ensuring optimal provision of infrastructure assets. Effectiveness in this process will enable the infrastructure asset owners and its stakeholder to receive full value on their investment. Business research has shown that an organisation can only achieve business value when it has the right capabilities. This paradigm can also be applied to infrastructure capacity management. With limited access to resources, the challenge for infrastructure
organisations is to identify and develop core capabilities to enable infrastructure capacity management. This paper explores the concept of capability and identifies the core capabilities needed in infrastructure capacity management. Through a case study of the Port of Brisbane, this paper
shows that infrastructure organisations must develop their intelligence gathering capability to effectively manage the capacity of their assets.
